Los Realejos becomes an open-air museum
The Department of Education of Los Realejos, directed by Sandra Pérez, continues to develop its mural art project in the eight public schools in the municipality.
The Canarian artist Víctor Pacheco (Kob) has already made the murals of the CEO La Pared de Icod el Alto, CEIP Agustín Espinosa, CEIP San Sebastián de Realejo Bajo (pictorial work that had to be done on an interior wall when the building was integrated into an area catalouged as an Asset of Cultural Interest), CEIP Mencey Bentor of La Cruz Santa and CEIP La Montañeta, culminating these days with the CEIP Palo Blanco and in the absence of the CEIP Toscal Longuera and CEIP Pérez Zamora, with which it will close the global beautification project of the realejeros colleges.
The mayor of Los Realejos, Manuel Domínguez, insists that “the municipality is becoming an authentic open-air museum by lending its walls in some way to these outstanding artists, in charge of translating into them new outlines for a modern city where educational spaces must have special relevance “.
The mayor recalls “the multipurpose building, the old Municipal Market, the facade of the Social and Cultural Centereof La Cruz Santa, the side wall of the La Montaña sports centre, the Poeta Antonio Reyes square in Icod el Alto, the dedicated mural to the illustrious realejeros José de Viera y Clavijo and Antonio González, as examples of some of these works of urban art “.
