Dr. Evangelina Villegas

Our second and last one to go up, also without any problems.

The screw holes are in and this one is done!

This is Dr. Evangelina Villegas, a Mexican cereal biochemist whose  work with maize led to the development of high-quality protein maize. She won the World Food Prize in 2000

The World Food Prize headquarters, undergoing extensive, and beautiful renovations of which the mosaics are a part.

Once the piece is on the wall, we have to fill in the screw holes.

This one is done. A frame will be added around the piece in a few days.

The Artist for this project is Kinuko Craft, a Japanese-born American contemporary painter, illustrator and fantasy artist.
