Juarez El Paso Mágico is the largest mega-mural project of its kind. It was started as a bi-national initiative of Amor Por Juarez, a project of El Paso Community Foundation, to paint 210 houses in Anapra, one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in Juarez, Mexico. The area has a long history of crime and drug violence and residents have been able to enjoy community-based workshops and are helping with the beautification of their own homes.
The mega-mural is visible from I-10 West between Downtown El Paso and the University of Texas El Paso. Phase II of the project involves creating a mega-mural in El Paso on a median of I-10 east heading towards Downtown. Residents living in the Anapra area will be able to enjoy the mural visible from their neighborhood. Progressors were able to help create awareness of this project and help Amor For Juarez with its fundraising efforts. This bi-national collaboration has had a positive community impact that will last for years to come.
