PHOTOS: Urbana Fashion Street Art 2015
With a mix of art, fashion and architecture, the exhibit Urbana Fashion Street Art 2015 brought color to different parts of San José with the intention of making art available to everybody. The last stop of the exhibit was the Plaza de la Cultura downtown, where during two weeks visitors could see and interact with 25 giant high heel shoes — 2.5 meters high, 2.5 meters long and 1.5 meters wide — decorated by 20 Costa Rican artists.
The pieces will be taken down Tuesday.
“It was a great experience to contribute with public art, seeing people not so used to attending art shows stopping and taking the time to admire the pieces and taking photos,” said Juan José Durán, one of the participating artists.
Architect Lucía Díaz and model Leoneora Jiménez produced the event. The pieces are being auctioned off and part of the money collected will be donated to the Hogar Siembra foundation for at-risk youth.
