Pinta mi Cuna means paint my crib! ~ Alissa Alfono
Posted: Aug 26 2016
When the peeps from Give Wink, the super hip baby & kid everything store in Aventura Fl contacted me about recreating this baby cot, I was hooked! The baby cot is a highly designed travel cot, it was super easy to assemble, and this is coming from a mom who has not had to deal with baby gear in a longgggg time. The baby cot company is Babyhome, and it is a group of creative peeps who are Mom’s & Dad’s who I want to hang out with! On the “Concept” area of their website it says on the very bottom of the page… “But above all we value happiness, friendship and freedom, values that we apply in everything we do. :)” cool.. so cool!
So what is Pinta Mi Cuna?? It is very simple – 20 portable cradles were distributed among local and acclaimed artists. I have approx. 7 weeks to “recreate the crib” according to my vision/style. The cradles will then be exhibited and auctioned in an effort to raise funds for TECHO during Art Basel week 2016. TECHO is a youth led non-profit organization present in Latin America & the Caribbean. Through the joint work of families living in extreme poverty with youth volunteers, TECHO seeks to overcome poverty in slums. The goal is to raise funds in order to build two transitional houses for families living in poverty. I will be posting as I’m creating my functional art cot. Feeling honored to be part of this collaboration….A
