The Envision Arts Gallery is excited to welcome George Mendoza and his world-famous exhibition Colors of the Wind on October 6. Artist, athlete, and motivational speaker, George Mendoza is famous for creating colorfully vivid dreamscapes that capture the surreal essence of his experience.
Based in Las Cruces, NM, George Mendoza is a world-renowned artist and writer and the CEO and President of the Wise Tree Foundation, Inc., which was established in 2013 to promote the arts for the disabled. Mendoza went blind when he was 15 and broke the world record for blind athletes running the mile in 4 minutes and 28 seconds in 1980. His art exhibit Colors of the Wind is on view with the National Smithsonian and he has also written a children’s book based on the exhibit. He was the producer for two nationally televised PBS documentaries based on his life story and has won many awards in the arts. Currently, a screenplay based on Mendoza’s life is being developed by writer Daniel Landes.
