Our country is a colorful mosaic, which shines through its food, crafts, and in recent years by its urban murals. But who promotes this art corridor in the Cruz de Huanacaxtle that is giving people talk?
Banderas Bay has stood out for being a multicultural meeting point, which enthusiastically embraces the foreign community that vacations in this Nayarita destination. Thousands of tourists from the neighboring country, the United States and Canada, have adopted it as their second home for seasons, fleeing the cold and enjoying an enviable climate as it is at this time. Thus, in this link between foreigners and volunteers from the community itself, participation in this type of initiative has become enriching.
So far this project has been developed in 23 cities in 17 states of the country. This collective, with the support of the Comex company, intends to paint between 35 and 40 murals in this art corridor; that is to say, more than 1,000 square meters of color and joy.
Colectivo Tomate is a civil association, which for 11 years has promoted communication between people through dialogue and art. In association with the company's high social impact program Comex: "For a Mexico well done"They are carrying out community integration workshops and image and expression projects on murals, created by artists from different parts of the country.
The objective is to give a sense of identity to its inhabitants, creating synergy with the foreign community. From November, and until the third week of February, everyone is invited to participate in this art corridor that will further beautify this wonderful town of La Cruz.
"From the stories of the people who live in the place, what the artist interprets and captures in the spaces of the town emerges," according to Salvador García, director of Colectivo Tomate.
If you come to the Riviera Nayarit, don't forget that there are stories that you can learn through its murals. Walk through this corridor of art that is made of the hearts of the townspeople and other countries who fall in love with the Bay of Banderas.
