Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Local artist Natasha Moraga and Mosayko Vallarta volunteers are still reshaping and transforming Lazaro Cardenas Park into another internationally recognized icon in Puerto Vallarta: El Parque de los Azulejos. Here's the latest on the Tile Park PV project.
Welcome to El Parque de los Azulejos! What an exciting year that we had at the park and we would like to personally thank you all for your support. While things are heating up in Vallarta, we are still diligently working away on the construction of the new benches with some added waves of concrete and small tables add cohesiveness to the park. We are so excited and quite frankly we can't wait until next fall when we start the mosaic process for the remainder of the park.
We loved seeing the teamwork, camaraderie, and friendships built. Each team was responsible for coming up with the design either collectively or to section their pillar by participants. All of the attendees worked exceptionally hard and delighted us with their creativity. Many of the students were in the park for days and weeks prior to the workshop studying each and every pillar and coming up with their own unique designs. All of the pillars in El Parque de los Azulejos have been completed - and they look amazing!
When is your next chance to get dirty? Our workshops will be returning for the Fall 2018-Spring 2019 season and upcoming dates will be announced on August 1st when presale of the workshops will begin.
Sponsorships for tiles and benches went like gangbusters. What an honor it was to meet all the many people who support this project. We cannot thank you enough for your support and we're deeply touched by all your stories and your love for Puerto Vallarta and especially La Zona Romantica.
This public art installation is all about community and we welcome you to be a part of it. Due to limited availability, we will be doing a price increase in Fall 2018. Please email info(at)tileparkpv.com to learn how you can sponsor a tile or a Celebration Bench.
We are excited to announce that we have a Natasha-inspired blog that will be brilliantly written by Emily Murray. We are very grateful to have Emily on board and we wish her the best of luck. We would also like to give a big thank you to Tammy Carruthers Prust of Nacho Daddy for helping with the technical side of the website. We are currently reconstructing our website and it should be completed by August 1 with all the updated information for Tiles, Workshops, and Events.
El Parque de los Azulejos is currently looking for volunteers. Even if you are not a social media whiz we can still use your support on our Go Viral Team.
