Iconic Kcull Calle 8 Celia Cruz Mural 1-Year Anniversary

Original Canvas Mural Replica by Street Artist Miss Lushy
Part of the Celia Cruz Traveling Expo

Coming up on the first-year anniversary of the iconic Celia Cruz ‘Queen of Salsa’ mural envisioned and executed by brush-happy virtuoso Miss Lushy, Kcull and the artist paired up again to celebrate the colorful April 3rd 2021 unveiling on Miami’s main street Calle 8. This was Kcull’s first of the ‘Latin Art Series’, a number of commendatory murals intended to have, first, a beautification effect on the area… to then reap the many benefits —advancement of community ties, buildup of the neighborhood’s economic network, nascent sense of pride, attraction of local and state legislative project building dollars— sprouting from such an elaborate gambit.
