The government of Mexico has recently partnered up with the German Crew, a group of local street artists, to paint a 20,000–square meter mural across the surface of 209 homes in Palmitas district of Pachuca, Mexico.

This project was an attempt at urban renewal, which hopes to convey visual and social changes through providing temporary jobs and reduce crime and violence within the neighborhood.
