Barrio Block Party

Uploaded by Ben Tremillo
San Anto Cultural Arts (SACA), an organization that has used public art to empower and educate youth on San Antonio’s West Side since 1993, is unveiling a new mural restoration and throwing a big ol’ Barrio Block Party to celebrate. The restoration project, completed by SACA student muralistas, is of artist Alex Rubio’s beloved mural Sweet as Candy (located at the corner of Guadalupe and Chupaderas streets). The event, which also celebrates the release of the 216th issue of the organization’s community newspaper El Placazo, will feature various cultural/artisan vendors, food and drinks for purchase and activities for the kiddos, in addition to the mural unveiling ceremony. No bitchin’ block party would be complete without music, so SACA has invited Lonely Horse, a high-octane, desert blues-rock act that never disappoints in the live setting, to perform at this special event.
