Paseo de la Reforma–or just "Reforma" to locals–is Mexico City's principal avenue, and its generous width means there's ample space to maintain large-scale public artworks.
Among the best-known artists who have sculptures along Reforma is Jorge Marín, who has lived in Mexico City since he was a child. Thirteen of Marín's sculptures are among the many public artworks on Reforma; this set of pieces comprises a body of work called "The Wings of the City."
Many of the other works along Reforma have an interactive or functional component; many, for example, also serve as benches. In addition to these permanent installations, Reforma also hosts occasional temporary exhibits, often in conjunction with special events or cultural celebrations.

Pride in Mexico City
Whether they intend to visit Mexico City to participate in the annual PRIDE festivities, or whether they happen to be in town during PRIDE Weekend, many visitors to the capital are surprised by how raucous, how well-attended, and how respectful Mexico City's annual LGBT parade is.
The parade is a reflection of the diversity and relative safety and freedom LGBT residents of Mexico City experience. The city recently established a subsection of its tourism department specifically for LGBT travelers, and an ever-growing roster of annual festivals and events attracts a growing number of LGBT visitors.
The annual gay pride parade is held each June. For specific dates, visit the website of the Secretary of Tourism.
