Matthew Reid – Community Art near Ciudadela

Our first Artist – Matthew Reid chose to do a mural on the wall of our hang-out area of The Hostel @ San Jorge. He also ventured out into the community and contributed art to walls in our Santurce neighborhood.

Our program is not limited to graphic artists – it could be anything creative as long as it involves some activity at the hotel – performance, seminar, workshop, as well as murals, door art, work to display in rooms or other concepts.  We also like proposals that will include the local community as well as the hotel & hostel.

Send any proposals to rholm@caribbeanconsulting.com – along with a link to your resume, portfolio, Facebook page. etc.

Hotel stays can range from one night to one week or more depending on the proposal.  Accommodations will be single or double occupancy in the hostel or hotel depending on the project and availability. If you have a group or crew, we have some weeks where we can accommodate larger groups in the dorms.

We’ll post a schedule of artists as soon as we review proposals.

We’ll also promote our artists on our website, avenediadelasartes.com, santurceando.com and local PR.
