A mural dedicated to Gaudí in the district of La Mina

The artists' association Promociones Artísticas Mina PROAMINA, which encourages microprojects of local capital with social objectives for the district of La Mina in Sant Adrià del Besòs, has presented a mural undertaken by a group of young people from the area in a situation of social risk.

They were accompanied by a specialist instructor and the work was accomplished under the direction of the artist J. L. Montero, a member of PROAMINA. The work has been subsidised as a microproject of the CLS project of the European Community co-ordinated by the CIREM Foundation.

The mural can be seen on the corner of Llevant and El Mar Streets in Sant Adrià de Besòs, a neighbouring town of Barcelona. To create it, materials such as stone, ceramics and metal were used.

Its official inauguration is planned for the end of September 2002, as a citizen's homage to the architect Gaudí.
