GTA launches Village Mural Project with the unveiling of the first mural in Dededo

Tamuning, Guam, Thursday, June 2, 2022- GTA is collaborating with local artists, village mayors, and the Island Beautification Task Force to launch the GTA Village Mural Project. This initiative brings together communities and creates vibrant neighborhoods where island residents live and work. 

The local telecom company is committed to creating a mural for all 19 villages over the next couple years. To commemorate the GTA Village Mural Project launch, the company held a ribbon cutting ceremony today to celebrate the completion of its first mural, ‘We Start with You’ located at the GTA Northern Business Office in Dededo.  

The mural was created by local artist Austin Domingo, who thanks GTA for supporting local artists like himself, saying that a lot of great ideas and inventions start with a creative thought. “This project symbolizes that this is where it starts- it starts at home. That’s been one of my driving forces. I wanted to prove that I could start here at home and succeed as an artist because if I don’t do it here, I don’t think it’s guaranteed I can do this anywhere in the world. So, I’m grateful for businesses like GTA that support local artists like me,” he added. 

The ‘We Start with You’ mural draws on the theme of truly local elements with vibrant greens, blues, and reds. He included land and sea animals found in Guam and are familiar to the island people. 

GTA is also partnering with other local artists to showcase its commitment to supporting culture and arts, living up to our brand promise of being vibrant, leading edge, and truly local. The next mural will be in the village of Mangilao.

Nathan Denight, Vice President of Marketing, says, “We were inspired by our brand promise ‘We start with you,’ and wanted to extend that to a grassroots level with large, vibrant local murals that capture the spirit of each village. We are excited to work with our talented local artists and thank the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Mayors, and GTA staff and management for supporting this inspiring project.”
