Paseo Caribe offers a variety of art, culture and entertainment events. From the Sunset Rhythm on Friday nights to the Open Studio featuring student's artwork lead by Sofía Maldonado, Paseo Caribe has something for everyone.
El Mercado at Paseo Caribe holds four murals by world-renowned artist Tom Christopher. His mission was to tell the story of people of Puerto Rico.
El Mercado at Paseo Caribe is the home of these murals that reflect the culture of the hard working people of the island, as seen by the artist.
"The theme for the murals hit like a lighting bolt: Let's now celebrate the working women and men of Puerto Rico. From white-collar jobs, to orange vested construction working in Viejo San Juan, let's stomp with paint-splattered boots, the evil rumor of the jobless fleeing a bankrupt island. Let's show what the native would see: tour guides leading groups up to El Yunque, lawn mower guys at El Morro, artifacts pouring over a drawing board, a drone pilot filming a wedding, kamikaze motorcycles messengers and lawyers going on a lunch break in Hato Rey." — Tom Christoper
Also, part of Christopher’s mission was to impact local art students and offer them the opportunity to work along side him, hands-on. This idea led to Open Studio. A space where students could work on A space where students could work on their own projects, under the supervision of Christopher and art professor Sofía Maldonado.
