Street art in the Santa Teresa neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro
Although we saw many murals in other parts of Rio de Janeiro, the greatest concentration of murals and other art that we saw was in the neighborhood where we were staying, Santa Teresa (a few other examples appear in my first blog post from Rio).
Even the light poles got painted
Most of what we saw, however, appeared on the walls. Sometimes artists painted copies of museum works
The original works were much more frequent
Finally, we saw these fun metal sculptures in a yard off the side of Santa Teresa's main drag
