ACAPULCO X LAS50

The old Savoy Theater on Calle Loiza is a unique property to continue LAS50, our outdoor art gallery project.

Currently maintained in great condition and used for business and warehousing, it features large and segmented walls on the sides and a broad face, perfect for creating individual but coordinated pieces of outdoor art.

Acapulco Taqueria and LAS50 are teaming up to produce a major work and help the neighborhood transition to a cleaner, safer more aesthetic corner to live, work and visit.

The overall concept with this property is to produce an evolving gallery where art will be integrated under a similar illustrative style but be regularly updated by both local and visiting artists. Some pieces may remain for years, others for months under the direction of elegel group, a local artist management and gallery business.

In addition to the art, the owners of the property and Acapulco Taqueria have pledged to provide lighting for the art which will brighten this sometimes dark and quiet corner and attract positive attention during the nighttime. As vandalism graffiti has been proven to be reduced when professional murals (and lighting) are introduced to a property the undesirable urban scrawl will be cleaned up creating a more pleasing aesthetic for this corner of Calle Loiza, home to a growing restaurant and shopping community.
