Urban Sketchers Barcelona

The big mural del Born

Come and participate in the creation of the giant, collective temporary mural of the Born.

Taking advantage of the space of the Born CCM, people of any age will be proposed to draw a mural of 30 metres long. This temporary mural will illustrate the building in its setting and in relation to the exhibition “Born. Memories of a market”.

The association USK Barcelona will accompany the artists to fill the mural with drawings of façades and urban details typical of today's and yesterday's neighbourhood. All the necessary material will be at the disposition of the participants.

A video of the type of Timelapse will be produced that will illustrate the process throughout the day.

Urban Sketchers
Urban Sketchers is a non-profit making organisation with a network of groups all over the world with the aim of spreading drawing as a tool of expression and communication. In 2017 we are celebrating the tenth anniversary at a world level. (Amongst other activities, we have jointly organised with 30 cities from all over the world a course about the use of drawing to explain the stories that surround us in our city).

Nowadays, our community of artists gathers together between 80 and 200 people, depending on the event that is organised, and we can find amateurs and professionals with the aim of showing our daily activity, our cities, the stories that we can find there where we find "drawing to drawing".
