Mexican Government and Street Artists Unite The Community
The district of Palmitas in Pachuca in Mexico recently underwent a facelift. In an effort to unite the community, Germen Crew (a youth organization of muralists and street artists) and the government of Mexico collaborated to paint a mural that stretched over 20,000 square meters of surface on 209 houses. The huge street art project combined the homes into one macro mural of bright swirling colors. Now 452 families can enjoy the beautified surroundings.
The project was meant to encourage togetherness, while also revitalizing the mural painting community.
