What is the IMVG?

IMVG La ciudad pintada (Mural Itinerary for Vitoria-Gasteiz, The Painted City) Is a tool for public community art.

Objectives

A cultural tool

Working to improve social cohesion through art.

Fostering public participation

The IMVG´s primary objective is to produce public works of art by bringing together professional artists and people from all walks of life. Based on a highly participative structure, the IMVG creates murals on the facades of buildings, starting in the medieval quarter of Vitoria-Gasteiz and extending into new neighborhoods over time. The result is a street-level gallery where process and product share equal value.

Promoting artists and creators

IMVG drives artists to get involved in their environment and neighbors and interested citizens to actively take part in  works of art that improve and beautify their own neighborhood.

How do the workshops work?

Duration

IMVG´s muralism workshops last approximately 6 weeks, usually in the months of June and July.

Design

During the first 2 weeks, artists and participants meet for brainstorming, discussions, research, drawing and composition. By the end of this phase the group will have a scale drawing of the what will be the painted mural.

Production

The lead artists, assistants and "Brush Brigades" work 8 hours a day creating the mural. Volunteers participate according to their own work/personal schedules, keeping their hours flexible to ensure that anyone who wants to particpate has the opportunity to do so.  IMVG asks for a minimum commitment of 10 hours a week, but each volunteer can choose the time-frame that best suits him or her, and is of course  welcome to paint more hours than the minimum.

And when it´s finished...

When the workshop is over the mural is publicly inaugurated! a celebration for the city and the neighborhood.

All the volunteers receive:

  • A certificate of participation
  • DVD with photos and videos of the process
  • and an IMVG t-shirt!
