On Sunday evening Oct.18 there was an unveiling of an absolutely beautiful work of art at the Eastwood mall. A large crowd gathered in anticipation of this event. Beautiful music resonating through the area by Eduardo and Heather Mandujano along with Margaret Jones and Nathan stephens helped to transform the room. The artists and friends crowded into the viewing area all staring at the looming black curtain raised twenty feet into the air. As the curtain came down you or maybe just I could hear and feel the air leave the room for a second as everyone took a deep breath.
