Culture Quest

Puerto Rico

We travel to Puerto Rico to explore graffiti and mural culture. This is a surprising look at how something that is seen as a sign of blight, of a neighborhood in decline, is actually unifying neighborhoods around the island. The murals give residents a sense of history and pride as well as much needed income from tourists who are more and more visiting these seldom-seen barrios to view internationally recognized mural art.

series description

Culture Quest is a series that looks at life through the lens of the world's artists, artisans and keepers of culture. It's through that lens that we not only look at the day-to-day struggles and successes of the individual people we are spending time with, but also look at the larger issues that are affecting the places they call home. Culture Quest is a chance to see modern life through human expression that can range from ancient and traditional to modern and reactive. Looking at life through the lens of art, artisanship and traditional culture is a perfect way to hold up the mirror to the wide spectrum of struggles and successes that people around the planet go through each and every day of their lives.
