From December 9 thru 12, 2020, the young city of Açailândia (MA) was home to five of the ten finalists for the creation of the first city mural in the final phase of the Arte-em-Cores Project. They had at their disposal a 255-m2 area located at the city’s bus terminal, where thousands of people arrive and depart every day. At this symbolic venue, the artists created a large thematic mural along the wall of the terminal square, leading to the facade of three neighboring commercial establishments. The mural colors and motifs revitalized an important area of the city and revealed artists who dream of rewriting their own future through graffiti.Share
