The Jardin del Arte in Mexico City

You don't have to look very hard to find artwork in Mexico City. The city brims with murals, sculptures, and galleries. One of my favorite places to check out the work of both professional and amateur artists is the Jardín del Arte, an outdoor art show held every Sunday in Sullivan Park. Artists of all kinds and abilities display and sell their creations in this tranquil park located near the busy intersection of Avenida Insurgentes and the Paseo de la Reforma. Lining the tree-shaded pathways are exhibits of everything from traditional landscape paintings and miniatures of Spanish colonial architecture to modern sculptures and lively abstract canvases the size of doors.
