Take a Walk on Street Art (literally) at Omar Park
Vibrant yellow, orange, white, and blue designs were painted on the pedestrian crosswalk to Omar Park in Panama Pacifico. The designs were inspired by Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Diez to help promote the arts and commemorate the 2013 summer Festival Abierto (Open Festival). Cruz-Diez, a kinetic and optical painter, is renowned for transforming cosmopolitan venues in Miami, Rio de Janeiro, and Paris into artistic spaces. Panama Pacifico is an emerging master-planned community on the less developed side of the canal.
