Museo Cielo Abierto - Open Air Museum
Don and Lois Porter

During the early 1970s Professor Francisco Méndez of the Institute of Art at the Catholic University of Valparaiso conducted workshops on mural painting. In collaboration with other authorities in the city, arrangements were made for a series of murals on appropriate walls in the Bellavista Hill neighborhood. A number of artists participated by creating the murals. Since that time, the Catholic University of Valparaiso has continued to maintain the works, often fighting against defacing graffiti. These works form a integral treasure that contributes to the artistic heritage of Valparaiso. The tradition has continued, with later murals expanding the scope beyond the original collection.
