UNEXPECTED.

One never expects the things, people, or places that impact their life the most. San Pancho is one of those unexpected places. Filled with unexpected people doing and creating unexpected things.

ONE ROAD.

The beach waves crash at the end of a long San Pancho road. A road filled with noise. Filled with life. Hola’s and smiles. Cowboys and farmers. Markets. Food Carts. Skateboards and bikes. Buskers, surfers and children. Cafe’s. Galleries and shops. Community parks, centers, collectives, and schools. Dogs and Horses. Dancing, laughs, embraces and Adios’s. This one road, from highway to ocean, is the blood line of San Pancho. Not just a route of coming and going, but a route that connects and builds a community.

WALLS.

Walls carry loads, provide shelter, protect, border, and box things in or out. Walls define an area. Constantly built and broken, their definition of a space or a place changes as quickly as the brick goes up. As quickly as the mortar crumbles down.

WALLS OF SAN PANCHO.

The walls of San Pancho. Painted colors. Written Colors. Crumbling colors. Bricks of red, orange, yellow, pink and blue. Murals of boats, lizards, fish, and saints. Recycled mosaics from bowls and bottle-caps. Walls that match flowers, trees, sunsets, and ideas. The walls of San Pancho define the area. They define the community.

COLECTIVO SAN PANCHO.

The perfect wall stood nestled behind palms near the beginning of town. The other side sheltered a collective of local artists. Photos, paintings, and prints. Dances and Films. Clothes and Jewelry. Made by collective hands and creative minds. The perfect wall in this creative space was exactly the spot for fresh paint and a new community collaboration.

THREE SUNS.

The design was drawn. Flyers were hung. The wall was prepped with splashes of blue and white. The artists filed in. They dipped their brushes in reds, yellows, and oranges. The colors of the sun. The colors of meaning and inspiration to the small beach-side town. Each artist applied their own unique “ray” design, but from afar the three suns began to take form. Four long hot days came and went. Days of brushwork, technique, collaboration, and smiles. The mural of three suns now defines the area with new light. A collective effort from a creative, inspired community.

  1. This is the right website for anyone who hopes to understand this topic.
    You know so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really will need to…HaHa).
    You certainly put a fresh spin on a topic that’s been discussed for ages.

    Wonderful stuff, just excellent!

    Aw, this was an extremely good post. Taking the time and actual effort to generate a really good article… but what can I say… I hesitate a whole lot and never manage to get anything done.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  6. I like what you guys are up also. Such clever work and reporting! Keep up the excellent works guys I?¦ve incorporated you guys to my blogroll. I think it’ll improve the value of my web site 🙂

    Have you ever considered creating an e-book or guest authoring on other blogs?
    I have got a blog centered about the same topics
    you discuss and would love to possess you share some stories/information. I am aware my audience would appreciate your work.
    If you’re even remotely interested, go ahead and shoot me an e-mail.

  8. Greetings! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I really enjoy reading your articles. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that deal with the same topics? Thanks!

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation however I find this topic being really one thing that
    I believe I’d never understand. It sort of feels too
    complicated and extremely broad for me. I am developing a look ahead within your subsequent post, I will make an effort to have the hold of it!
