First Edition of “Arte Urbano Lincoln” Set to Take Place in Mendoza, Argentina

From January 31st to February 2nd, the first edition of Arte Urbano Lincoln 2020 is scheduled to take place. This first meeting, “proposes artistic interventions and various installations for the General San Martín Municipal Park in the municipality of Lincoln of Mendoza, Argentina.” Over the course of the event, 14 visual artists will transform various spaces of the Municipal Park under the theme “Carnival,” and, each day is expected to becomes more festive as the date for carnival in Argentina and Latin America draws near.

The organizers explained that, in most cases, the techniques to be used are mural painting and relief casting, but that each artist is free to give rise to their creations in whatever way they see most fitting. The visual artists set to participate are: Luciana Maccaroni; Julieta Roselló; Zaida Rafful; Mauricio PowBoy; Santiago Murialdo; Matías Coperchio; Felipes Reyes; Agustina Gesteira; Jesús Gorrini; Carola Cenicero; Marisol Giangrandi; and Pablo Zubillaga.

It is worth mentioning that one of the goals of the Arte Urbano Lincoln project is to find ways to use different types of supports as urban furniture. Although this first edition is centered around San Martín Park, it plans to expand in future editions to cover other spaces of the district, as well as to encouraging more community participation in the planning and carrying out of the event.
