San Antonio’s Street Art Initiative (SASAI) unveils the first project in a series of beautification initiatives is AREA Real Estate’s Midtown Station parking lot, and the results are incredibly dope! Curated by artists Shek Vega and Nik Soupè of Los Otros Murals, SASAI’s goal is to establish a city where street art is abundant and local street artists can showcase their works. The Midtown Station parking lot, below Interstate 35, has brought together 16 artists to create 16 unique art pieces on the highway’s columns. Other artist collaborators include Robert Tatum, Angela Fox, Cruz Ortiz, Andy Benavides, and Paul Garson.
Hurricane Maria heavily damaged the island state of Puerto Rico, forcing many residents to find safety elsewhere. Unsurprisingly, many of those seeking a new home sought refuge in the nearest U.S. state: Florida.
