The Wall of Saints...
Todos Santos means "All Saints". Some years ago a few artists decided to paint a couple of saints on a wall that unites the old and new town. It is the most traversed road in our town. The only way to get downtown is through Topete by the Huerta.
This Spring as a member of the ARTS (Artistas de Todos Santos) group I suggested we organize all the artists in town to come together with the children in the community and complete the "Wall of Saints". On March 16th, 2009, 39 artists, 39 children and community volunteers came together to paint the wall. Local businesses in town sponsored the event and our local police controlled traffic in the street.
It was a day of complete artistic bliss and food for the heart! If you would like to see more pictures from this day or find out more about the event and the ARTS group please visit: http://http://todossantosartists.blogspot.com
