|Edgar Sandoval has been framing works of art in La Macarena for about 15 years.|
So, it often seems to me that art galleries serve to sterilize art and hide it away (which is why street art is so great).
These two La Macarena workshops are colorful, living, active non-deliberate art displays.

Can you see the artwork? Neither can I.
