A Street of Photos Pays Tribute to Sanmiguelenses
By Jesús Aguado
Since January, an area of calle San Francisco has held larger-than-life posters of Sanmiguelenses who have impacted the city’s culture, traditions, philanthropy, architecture, or education.
The exhibit, called Rostros (Faces), is the brainchild of Paulina Cadena, director of the city’s Culture and Tradition department. Cadena is one of a cadre of people the new local government appointed last year as “guardians of culture,” appointees in charge of spreading awareness of the city’s ancestral heritage.
Rostros‘ third installment went up Jun 24. To remain on display for 20 days, it pays tribute to 31 people who had an impact on the city’s cultural life.
