The Artistic Community
San Miguel is known as a community of artists, but to fully appreciate that understatement, getting closer to the city’s arts community should be on every traveler’s agenda. This village is a place where many have reinvented themselves as the next Picasso or Basquiat. First stop? The art galleries at Fábrica Aurora, where visitors add to collections in any genre, be it painting, drawing, or sculpture. Longtime local favorites include Peter Leventhal—whose Rubenesque nudes adorn many a wall across the globe—and his wife, multimedia artist Terra Mizwa; abstract artist Merry Calderoni; and Annie Evans, whose sculptures of devilish women are mesmerizing. Art galleries also abound in the Centro and nearby San Antonio district. Events calendars detail monthly art walks.
