2. Movimento Arte Expressa – Express Art Movement promotes another urban intervention in Niterói
Niterói is gradually becoming an open-air museum, thanks to the partnership between Ibmec Social, a junior company attached to the institution’s Center for Entrepreneurship (CEI), at Ibmec – RJ and the local council in Niterói. On December 20, a third intervention was carried out by the Express Art Movement in the district of Barreto. On this occasion, plastic artist, Luciano Caetano, painted a park bench. As well as normal paint, he also used a layer of anti-graffiti paint, which helps prevent any degradation of the bench, as well as against the climate, and particularly rain.
The sociocultural program financed by Ibmec Social, through its partner companies, and at no cost to the city, creates a new space to exhibit works of art in Niterói, with a focus on urban art and local artists. Urban facilities and fixtures in public spaces are used to stimulate the dissemination of plastic art, and interventions using wooden park benches by the municipality. A bench is painted for a year by a plastic artist, which both makes the streets more attractive and establishes a dialogue between artists and citizens.
