San Miguel de Allende rises as a new art district in Mexico

Muros en Blanco is an initiative that since 2013 has painted a total of 70 murals through San Miguel de Allende as part of these innovative art festivals featuring 3 to 5 artists per edition.

In this sense, San Miguel has effectively been turned into an art district, transforming life and the environment of all residents, thanks to murals of countless themes and genres.

Walking through the streets of the Colonia Guadalupe in the “dark side” of San Miguel, you feel as if you were in a youthful, indomitable, free art center that explodes and overflows with motivation and all thanks to an initiative taken up by Graffiti World, an organization that has worked very hard not only to transform the aesthetic environment of what previously was considered a dangerous neighborhood, but to ultimately change the social fabric, and the geogaphic location into a “safe place to take a walk”.

As you stroll down the streets of Colonia Guadalupe, you can see a collection of the most impressive murals made up to date; and an interview with Roberto Gutiérrez, curator and organizer of the Muros en Blanco festival, about the consequences, goals and achievements of this social phenomenon in San Miguel.
