Monday Mural

I'm linking up at Monday Mural hosted by Oakland Daily Photo.

February 2016 - Puerto Vallarta Mexico

Taken on isla Rio Cuale, there were many murals in this area.
The Vallarta Institute of Culture has begun "freshening up" the island, and the first order of business was the rehabilitation of the music school. Due to inclement weather, the property had been progressively deteriorating over the years, so structural renovation was necessary. While they were at it, they made room for a 60 meter long, 3.5 meter high mural to be painted on the school's outer wall.




The work, titled "Music Unites Us All," depicts a musical symphony with children and animals playing the instruments, and it is expected to be completed by the end of the month. The mural's creator, Ernesto Garrigos Rojas, has painted several urban murals in Puerto Vallarta, most notably at the Cuale Municipal Market.

  4. Very apt for a school. So much colour and so much for kids to look at and let their imaginations go wild. :)

  5. I cracked up at the musicians on the boat. I just love the mural tradition in Mexico. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
