Rubis Cayman Donates $7,500 To Charity And Crowns Christina Pineda As ‘Art Your Part’ Competition Winner At 10th Anniversary Celebration.

Former Director Of The National Trust Christina Pineda copped first place at Rubis Cayman’s 10th Anniversary event.

Pineda walked away with the cash prize of $3000 towards her charity (National Trust) after scoring 55 out of 65 marks. In second place was Carlos Garcia representing Feed Our Future, Kerwin Ebanks representing Alex Panton Foundation came in 3rd, and 4th place was Gordon Solomon representing the Cayman National Cultural Foundation.

Pineda’s winning piece was a vibrant, multifaceted mural focusing on the exotic flora and fauna of Cayman and how citizens can symbiotically coexist with nature.

At the centre of the artwork is the quintessential wooden Cayman cottage surrounded by iguanas, flowers, mangroves and up close, an ode to the national anthem. The design is deliberately whimsical to inspire renewed wander into the country’s rich natural and heritage features.

The voting system to determine the winner was multi-tiered. The first round of voting was public based and took place via the Rubis Cayman Islands Facebook page. This accounted for 20% of votes.

The final adjudication was completed by judges Director of Tourism Rosa Harris, Rubis Managing Director Andres Barthel and Multi-media Artist Avril Ward,  who did a walkthrough and inspected the piece up close. All contestants were scored in the categories of Impact (15 marks), Story/Inspiration (25 marks) and Originality/Creativity/Innovation (25 marks).

Pineda stated “I am honoured to have represented the National Trust in this creative way for Rubis to give back and I am extremely pleased that my artwork resonated with the judges and the community.”

“The National Trust for the Cayman Islands was elated to be selected as one of the charities for “Art Your Part” by Rubis. We love this initiative that celebrates Caymanian artists and supports the work of local non-profits. Christina Pineda created an iconic mural that truly represents what the National Trust represents,” added National Trust director Annick Jackman.
