The event will also be the debut of the new mural Mulheres na Capoeira, a community art project celebrating women in capoeira. Created by Oakland artist Anna Ludwig, in collaboration with the kids, teens, and adults of Capoeira Mandinga, this acrylic painting mosaic explores the history of women in capoeira and contributions women have made to the art form and surrounding culture. Composed of 72 square panels painted over the course of four community painting sessions, Mulheres na Capoeira will be assembled as a temporary installation on May 29, 2016. This project is funded by individual donations and a grant from the East Bay Fund for Artists at the East Bay Community Foundation.
