The urban landscape was very specific and the selection of these walls was made from an architectonic point of view of the cityscape, because all four lateral sides will be simultaneously seen from Sapucaí street, as  the first street art viewpoint in the world.

From July 26th to August 6th CURA brought art, film, music and culture to the third biggest city in Brazil.
