Cancun buildings being transformed into street artworks


CANCUN — Artists are turning the streets of Cancun into a beautiful open-air art gallery by transforming buildings into works of art, reports freelancer Hannah Blackiston in

A city-wide project, sponsored by the local government, has seen four buildings transformed already, two in the downtown area and two more in the city’s hotel zone. Another eight buildings will receive similar treatment in July.

Artists involved have come from as far away as America, New Zealand, and Ukraine to dedicate their time to the movement.

The project will go towards raising awareness for movements the city is passionate about, including ecotourism and ocean conservation. It’s hoped the artworks will also help put Cancun on the map as more than a boozy Spring Break getaway and promote the city’s bustling cultural landscape.
