Video Tour of El Paso’s Murals with Filmmaker Ramon Villa
Hundreds of El Pasoans like to gather at Lincoln Park, under the Spaghetti Bowl in Central El Paso. Recently, preservation groups held events in support of preserving the Lincoln Center as a community center for the area. TXDOT wants to knock it down to make way for a new interstate connection. It's been put on hold for now.
El Paso Public television station KCOS-TV has created a segment called 'Only in El Paso.' It covers positive and unique stories about people and places in and around the Sun City. This latest video was made thanks to filmmaker Ramon Villa.
A great event celebrating the murals and history of the area is coming up. Lincoln Park Day is taking place on Sept. 20, 2015. It's a car show with food exhibts and much more. This year Chicano artist Gabriel Gaytan will unveil a new mural called,'ZENITH.' I went last year and got to meet 'Mamacita.' If you attend this years event, you can find her sitting right in front of the mural.
See you out at Lincoln Park Day.
