NEW GRAFFITI AT THE VALLHONRAT MUSEUM
The entrance of the Vallhonrat de Rubí Museum Foundation, in May 2023, has renewed its image offering visitors a mural painted by the students of the 1st year of the Artistic Baccalaureate of l'INS La Serreta and leaving part of the old mural on the interior façade Created by EDRA in 2012.
The new mural reflects the evolution of human communication through time, which flows like the water of a river through seven fundamental historical stages: Prehistory with the typical cave paintings, Babylon with cuneiform writing, Egypt with its hieroglyphs, Greece with myths and oral culture, the end of the Middle Ages with Gutenberg and the printing press, the 9th and 20th centuries, with the digital age where communication through social networks is immediate and crosses borders.
This graffiti will be incorporated into the Ruta d'Street Art, organized by the Projection Service of the City of Rubí Town Hall.
