New San Antonio Patio Mural
The Norris Centers in San Antonio has recently made a major upgrade to the facilities’ patio area – with an artistic flair. A new patio mural has been added to the San Antonio location. This custom mural has been painted on the far wall, which had been a blank canvas ready for an artistic touch. This mural upgrade comes in addition to previously staining the bland concrete slab of the patio to a rich color. The patio is adjacent to the main Red Oak Ballroom and is accessible from either the Ballroom or back hallway.
The mural adds color, depth and flair to the outdoor space, which makes it more inviting to attendees. To achieve the one-of-a-kind masterpiece, Norris commissioned artist Jeronimo Graue Cornejo from Mexico City. Jeronimo completed the mural in just two weeks, drawing his inspiration from the Texas Hill Country and Mediterranean architecture. “We get compliments on the mural all the time,” says San Antonio General Manager Jeff Guidry, “it really completes the patio with a warm feeling and extends the space.” The mural is the perfect backdrop for cocktail parties, receptions or even ceremonies.
About the Artist
Jeronimo Graue Cornejo was born and raised in Mexico City. He started painting as a young child after being inspired by his Grandmother, who read to him from her collection of art history books. She also shared her private art collection with him and discussed what makes art a lasting form of expression. Jeronimo, now 20 years old, spent two years in Florence, Italy attending Art and Painting classes, which also allowed him to travel Europe to expand his artistic vision. Having completed the mural project in San Antonio, Jeronimo has returned to Mexico City to complete his degree at the Universidad Anahuac.
