CALEXICO – The City of Calexico and the Calexico Arts Commission unveiled the 5th mural located at Nostoros Park on Kloke Avenue & Calexico Street on Thursday, April 30.
Local artists, Eduardo Kintero, Aaron Eduardo Kintero, and Pablo Castañeda were thrilled to see their art project finally revealed.
The plan for this mural was only to paint two walls however, during the process Eduardo Kintero suggested they paint a third; the city agreed.
“These murals represent Calexico and the artistic disciplines this city has. It consists of images past and present,” Eduardo Kintero stated.
“I love to skateboard, and what better representation than a skater on a skateboard, painting” stated Aaron Kintero on how he designed the third wall mural.
Nosotros Park has a skating ring, however due to a fairly large concrete crack it was closed. The Calexico community hopes the city will consider reopening it soon.
