Love My Neighbor
Love My Neighbor Series by Alexey Steele is in the center of the larger public art project developed by artist. The concept of the series is to capture inspiring local heroes who command a universal love and admiration, even within most difficult neighborhoods. In Carson, that neighborhood is called Scottsdale. Alexey earned the trust of Scottsdale residents, and his public art project opened the lines of communication between the City of Carson and this underserved community. Alexey spent 500 hours publicly painting a portrait of Cirilo, a gardener who has tended to Scottsdale for 30+ years. His portrait is displayed publicly in the new Artward! Gallery in Scottsdale.
