Mexican art lovers and mural aficionados and anyone that just likes a
pleasing picture. I am happy to announce the publication of :
"The Murals of The Mezquitán Cemetery Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico" by
Brian Lynch [Hardcover]

Book Description

In 2001 the exterior walls of Guadalajara's Mezquitán Cemetery where
enhanced with a large mural. In an agreement between the University of
Guadalajara (U d G) and the City of Guadalajara some 100 visual arts students were
invited to paint 2500 square meters of space to create a huge mural. This
book recreates that mural which unfortunately has fallen on bad times. The
painting is inspired, in part, by a folk tale about a race to the cemetery by
two families for the privilege of having a family member buried there and
claiming the prize of the first burial plot free of charge. The race was
between a rich and a poor family. The poor family having only the sweat of
their brow lost as the rich family had access to a carriage. But this is only
the starting point as the mural was truly a community project involving
financial support from the government, numerous student painters and many
suggestions from the community concerning thematic input, from furtive loves
to a car accident. I hope the recreation of these images encourages the
continued practice of the mural art form and encourages the viewer and reader
to search out original murals for viewing.
