The event is called “Expresiones Juveniles” — Youth Expressions, and in order to emphasize the diversity of these expressions, Cepredey invited 10 local graffiti and mural artists from Mérida, Kanasín, Oxkutzcab, Ticul, and Progreso to create a 44-meter long mural.

It will be held in the facilities of the Cepredey, located at kilometer 37 of Merida’s west ring road — Anillo Periférico Poniente.

On Friday, Oct. 1, the event will begin at 1:00 p.m. and will continue until 7:00 p.m., while on Saturday, Oct. 2, it will be from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., at the Cepredey facilities.
