I am not a big fan of contemporary art, however, when I saw the sign for this exhibit I thought it would be a good experience for my girls. We didn’t know what we would find but we enjoyed our afternoon not only because of the art but also because of the beautiful location in beautiful Mexico. Fabrica de San Pedro is a very old fabric factory that is also part convention center and part cultural center for the city of Uruapan in Michoacan, Mexico. And here’s our contemporary art experience in images :-)
Please note all the artistic credit goes to the respective artists. I am only a photographer sharing their creative expressions :-)

A ridiculous amount of coffee was consumed in the process of creating this project. Add some fuel if you'd like to keep me going ;-) Gracias!

I live in Mexico with my hubby and four kiddos. I keep busy with homeschooling, traveling, and my Bible ministry. I love photography and writing, so I blog. My family is a little nutty but nutty is never boring and always an adventure. And I love adventure!

The artwork is wonderful, but that building, swoon!
The map was odd at first glance, but once you explained it I can’t not see it when I look at it. And I am thoroughly fascinated by the process that went into the photographs on the cords.
Thanks for commenting Audrey! I love the building too. Most of the original walls were made with adobe mud and straw. It’s a cool place to visit :-)
Some thought provoking art and a great building to house it in.
Most definitely Dorothy :-)
If you get to San Miguel de Allende, you must see Fabrica Aurora. It’s a turn of the (last) century cotton mill converted to art galleries and performance spaces. Lovely!
Thanks for the tip! Been to San Miguel but would like to return for another visit :-) Maybe I will look this place up!
Thank you for the update
De nada :-)
