On Sunday, June 9, Colectivo T.A.N. 473, child artists, and other community members joined to celebrate finishing the history of Guanajuato mural on the footpath Subida San Miguel that leads to the Pípila monument. Seattle glass artist Paul Marioni offered a wall for the mural and provided paint and enthusiastic support throughout the project.
Sterling had gone surfing and the El Ejido family that took three children to paint the mural one Saturday had other plans, so that left Manuel and me walking alone down our side of the canyon and up the other to join the celebration.
It rained heavily earlier in the day, and so we took an umbrella and warm jackets, as it gets chilly here at 7,000 feet when clouds hide the sun.
I took some photos of the finished mural on the way up.
We arrived at the top just in time to hear Katie Clancy thanking the artists and community members who helped with the mural. Katie called Manuel forward for special recognition.
