Akumal Arts Festival 2020!
Growing by leaps and bounds, this year the creation and building of anew ART PARK kicks off the festivities with construction NOW under way. Water fountains, lights, music and more surfaces to make art, an empty lot transform in another of our #beautifyakumal projects.
November 6-8, 2020 are the Akumal Arts Festival Dates
100 + Artists arrive the first week of November and start PAINTING
Art of the Children installation gets under way in July during the Hekab Be Biblioteca's Summer Art Program. Then again in September through October all the Akumal Pueblo school kids will be making new work for the Festival
Lots of art classes in the schools, library and community center continue to weave through the year with visiting artists loving our community. Workshop intensives run through the festival dates.
New this year will be Graffiti Art Camp for Girls!
With tremendous gratitude for all the local businesses and individuals who make this volunteer run, community supported initiative one of the largest mural festivals in the world! Already!
