Inés Orihuela was born in Lima, Peru in 1983. Her family moved to Birmingham in 1995 when her father became a Spanish professor at UAB. Within a year, Inés' parents discovered Studio By The Tracks, a non-profit art studio in Irondale providing free art classes to adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders. In the 20 years she has spent at Studio By The Tracks, she has become one of its most collected artists. She has shown at Hospital Audiences, Inc. in NYC, and has been featured on One King's Lane. She has shown locally at the Birmingham Public Library, Scene Gallery, and the Grand Bohemian Hotel Gallery.
Inés' artwork is distinguished by her highly stylized line work. Her passion for the process of art making is revealed in her extraordinary detail. Some of her most intricate pieces can take months to complete.
She's fluent in both English and Spanish, and enjoys traveling back to Peru.
Award-winning urban oasis.
Railroad Park is a Public/Private Partnership. That means it relies on funds from many sources. Keeping the park open, lush and full of activity requires municipal dollars, corporate donations and individual contributions. It takes everyone working together.
Since opening in 2010, Railroad Park has transformed the mindset and physical landscape of Birmingham. Railroad Park has been a catalyst for economic development, downtown living and fun. More than 600,000 residents and guests of the Magic City will participate in Park programs and activities this year. Railroad Park continues to generate positive local and national publicity for our region.
And Railroad Park doesn't work without you.
Have you been prouder of Birmingham since Railroad Park opened, or had more fun in the city since we've been here? If you've taken a jog, eaten a lunch, had a play date, a yoga class, a meeting, an afternoon nap or taken a shortcut to a Baron's game at Regions Field, please consider making a donation. Any amount makes a difference. Any amount makes Railroad Park programs and operations possible.
