Amor por Juarez has fiercely advocated for the promotion of local and internationally renowned artists and creating large-scale murals as a means to revitalize Juarez and El Paso and improve the quality of life for their citizens. More than static works of art, our cultural community has created artworks that have become synonymous with the identity of our region.
Artists are among the most vulnerable in our community, with many living performances to performance and commission to commission. It is our aim to mitigate the growing impact of the outbreak on artists living in the Paso del Norte region, particularly financial losses incurred due to the spread of COVID-19 and the social restriction measures implemented to contain the spread of the virus.
Here, we have compiled a comprehensive list of resources for artists, from funds to support pages.
