To better understand the history of the Magical Town
, visiting the mural by the painter Jorge Téllez
must be on your to-do list. This artwork, painted in 2000 and restored in 2017, can be seen from afar directing your view towards an alley on one side of the Temple of the Immaculate Conception
It is divided into six chapters along two walls, where the artist Jorge Tellez
recounts the exploits, life and work of the Angangueo
people, from pre-Hispanic times to the present day. Other visible events are the arrival of the Monarch Butterflies
. Something applaudable is the respect that its inhabitants give to this and other spaces dedicated to art, where you will not see any alteration.
Once you have entered into the Fine Arts
, another place that you have to visit is the Mural Al Minero
, drawn by the brushes of Arturo Estrada
, a painter from Panindicuaro
and Frida Kahlo'
s pupil. In this, you will see passages focused on the mining activity of the town, with contrasts of lights and shadows.
Without sugar coating the conditions of the workers, nor the arduous path of this trade that carved the essence of the now Magical Town and the resistance that characterizes it.
You can find the mural inside the Bartolome de Medina Technical High School
. More than 50 years after its completion, it remains intact and in full view of students, travelers and locals who dare to explore the corners of this intimate place in Michoacán
. Another piece of information is that the muralist dedicated the work to Cristina Kahlo
, Frida Kahlo’s sister
