Every Sunday, for 18 years, a section of the sidewalk on Paseo de Montejo becomes an open-air gallery where passersby can enjoy and purchase any type of visual art.

Established as an International Art Corridor, in the place, which runs from 33rd to 35th streets, around 90 artists exhibit their works from 8 in the morning to 2 in the afternoon.

Engravings, photographs, drawings, collages, paintings, and sculptures are some works that can be found in the corridor.

There have been so many years of the corridor that it already has regular clients, even people from other states who have established their residence in the city come to purchase works, says teacher Lilia Cámara Benois, coordinator of the corridor.

Being in an area of ​​tourist flow this corridor is also visited by people from other entities and countries interested in what the artists do.

The Bici-route has also helped them, as it creates a lot of movement of people who show interest in the works.

Lilia Cámara explains that only visual artists participate in the International Art Corridor, since what is sold and exhibited there is art, not crafts.

He points out that sales vary and they may sell twenty works or more on a Sunday.

In the last Holy Week vacation, he reported that things went well. “We thought that sales would be low because many people from here go to their beach house or in another city, but there was a lot of international tourism that buys a lot.”

He also says that there are prices for all budgets. “The truth is that there are works with affordable prices, although when they commission us that does raise their price a little.” Lilia Cámara points out that her goal is to reach 100 artists and that many have approached because they want to belong, for which a curatorship is carried out since it is sought that all the works are of quality.
