Rooted in Love and Grandma’s Garden, by San Antonio artist Kat Cadena, will be located inside the soon-to-be open Greater Love Multi-Generational Cultural Community Center.
Rooted in Love honors and celebrates children. The mural emphasizes the importance of providing them with love and security. It features a grandparent embracing a parent, who cradles a young child. This warm embrace reminds the viewer of the invaluable gifts of love, time, and family. It honors the preciousness of children and reminds us to listen to and protect them. Safe and supportive connections within families and communities nurture confident, imaginative individuals. With love and support, all children can grow up positively contributing to the world around them.
Cadena invited San Antonio Poet Laureate (2021-2023), Andrea “Vocab” Sanderson, to provide in-mural text for Rooted in Love. Sanderson provided the words: “Communities rooted in love enrich future generations.” These words serve as a reminder of the importance of intergenerational connections. The three-generation family surrounded by larger-than-life flowers embodies Sanderson’s message. The purple coneflowers (echinacea) featured in this mural are local and native to San Antonio. These flowers provide food and shelter for bees, butterflies, and songbirds. They also have medicinal uses. The mural serves as a celebration of the community that the Greater Love Multi-Generational Cultural Community Center will serve.
