Prototype rendering by artist Miguel Novelo Cruz

August 2022 - various locations

Meet artist Miguel Novelo and participate in his collaborative cinema performance series called Cinetero. For this project, the artist had built an adapted bike cargo trailer with video projection and sound equipment to create a live sound and video feed activating Palo Alto public spaces. Cinetero allows the creation of live cinema; in other words, the magic of cinema is made at the moment, with no editing. The artwork is activated when the visitors engage with the artist and share their personal stories about Palo Alto in a cinematic style, with ambient music, camera movement, and sound effects provided by the artist. 

Meet the artist and take part in Cinetero across these Palo Alto parks: 

  • Mitchell Park: Saturday, Aug 6, 6-8 p.m.
  • Ramos Park: Friday, Aug 12, 6-8 p.m. 
  • Byxbee Park: Saturday, Aug 13, 6-8 p.m.
  • Eleanor Pardee Park: Friday, Aug 19, 6-8 p.m.
  • Johnson Park: Friday, Aug 26, 6-8 p.m.
