Calle Lanín, a small cobblestone lane in the Barracas neighborhood, was transformed into an open-air art gallery by resident artist Marino Santa María. He began by intervening the facade of his own home in 1990 and soon his neighbors began inviting him to decorate the fronts of their homes as well. Eventually, with the help of the city government, the @bellasartesargentina and @unesco, the work was extended to cover 35 houses over two blocks. So much has this little street in the south of Buenos Aires changed, that Marino has been known for revolutionizing the neighborhood - even having parades in his name with residents thanking him for reviving Lanín. And today Pasaje Lanín celebrates its 17 years! Happy anniversary!
