Sharo García, founder of the ROMPE urban art collective, announced plans to create five murals in Puerto Vallarta’s city center. However, concerns arose regarding the lack of local artist involvement and the need to regulate large-scale street paintings.

The city’s chronicler advocated for a mural depicting Vallarta’s history. Despite private initiative, sponsors, including the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Trust and the Municipal Government, were involved.

Officials and collective announce artistic collaboration

The location and themes of the murals were disclosed, but criticism persisted over insufficient representation of local identity. Meanwhile, the Municipal Tourism Director addressed community concerns about urban neglect, assuring upcoming rehabilitation efforts for the Malecon.

Despite ongoing discussions, residents emphasize the need for comprehensive urban revitalization alongside artistic endeavors.
