Fortunately, art is not only present in museums, art can give color to life and transform streets. The trustees, administrators are in this case neighbours, simple people who promote the art of the city. Walking through the area you will see works with a variety of underlying messages. So this happens in Salamanca, in the western district, here are young artists alongside with established artists, filling the streets with their work.
The project “Urban Gallery Salamanca ‘, comes from an a neighbourhood association. This western district of Salamanca was ideal for this project due to it’s run-down appearance, many garages and empty storefronts. The core of the district is the Plaza del West and from there, the area is where all works are exhibited. It is given the opportunity to young artists to present their creations in the street and the neighbourhood is decorated. Surprising is the diversity and number of works that you can see.
If you go to Salamanca, a beautiful city, this is a must see. The neighbourhood is next to the towncenter.
