Happy Holidays to all of you charming and sparkling BSA readers!
It’s been a raucous sleigh ride with you and we thank everyone most sincerely for your support and participation this year. A sort of tradition for us at the end of this December we are marking the year with “14 from 2014”. We asked photographers and curators from various perspectives of street culture to share a gem with all of us that means something to them. Join us as we collectively say goodbye and thank you to ’14.
“This mural is a collaboration between the Toy Museum Mexico, the office of the mayor in Mexico City, and The National Youth Institute. Since 1930s when Diego Rivera, Siqueiros and Orozco painted the last murals on government buildings it has been more than 90 years since a Mexico City metro building was painted by a Mexican Muralist, making this wall an historic happening.
The Colegio Militar metro building was painted with the intention to inspire all the young people who take courses and classes there. More than 20 elementary schools and secondary schools are in the same neighborhood so we had a lot of kids passing and looking every day watching how this normal wall became a nice huge mural.
With it we hope to give people the message that no matter how little we are if we work hard we can succeed.”
