San Miguel de Allende.- The Municipal Institute of Attention to Youth of San Miguel de Allende (Instituto Municipal de Atención a la Juventud de San Miguel de Allende IMAJSMA), inaugurated the mural ‘ Sanmiguelense Chingón ‘, located at the entrance of the Manuel J. Clouthier Park.
On behalf of the municipal government, the IMAJSMA secretary, Ricardo Trujillo, invited the young people to work together.
“As our municipal president Luis Alberto Villarreal says, working together allows us to do many things. Guys, I know it is not easy and I want to thank you because this is the beginning of many walls that we want to artistically intervene in order to express what youth is today, “said the secretary.
The mural was designed and produced by the visual artist Gerardo Rivera, better known as ‘Fósil’; the artist Isaac Luna and young apprentices and residents of the area also participated in the creation, who were recognized for their collaboration. They are: Jessica Hernández Juárez, Neri Yair López and Eduardo Álvarez Soria. The work was done in 5 days.
The artist and director of the work, Gerardo Rivera, stressed that the mural represents scenes and moments that make San Miguel ‘chingón’. Among the different illustrations you can see ‘El Chorro’, an emblematic place where the history of the municipality is born; San Miguel Arcángel was captured in representation of the force with which the inhabitants face the pandemic; the ‘tapas‘ campaign stands out for the continuous help given to the little ones who are going through a battle with cancer.
“With details, this is how the ‘Sanmiguelense Chingón‘ is represented”, said the young muralist.
