"Alfredo de Batuc: His Art • His Habitat • His City"

Music composed by Omar Monge

The artist talks about his art-making, his obsessively recurring two images: city hall, and what he calls the "Presence" — an anthropomorphic heavenly body variously seen as the sun or the moon.

He shares some thoughts on community art, shows us a small part of his art collection; the pieces that hang on the walls of his room. And leads us on a tour of a few of the de Batucs in Donald Ferguson’s collection that hang in the historic Doran House.

The artwork shown in de Batuc’s walls is by Mario Calvano, Ann Chamberlin, Marcel DeJure, Sandra Drinning, Judith Durán, Donald Ferguson, Elsa Flores, Antonio García, Roberto Gil de Montes, Gronk, DeLoss McGraw, Frank Romero, Alejandro Rosas, Sergio Vásquez, Nan Wollman.

Special thanks to Lori Estrada, Donald Ferguson, Mat Gleason, James Lucchesi, Omar Monge, Cornelio Guerra, Grace Valencia.
