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.
