14 Murales for Quilpue
From the 23rd to the 25th of november 2009, Federica Matta, the artists of the Marga-Marga province and the studios Esther Valencia had for goal to create four murales of 14 panels in relation with the four districts of this new province.
The Murales, intended to be exhibited in Quilpue's metro station were installed over two nights in order to maintain normal transport services.
On the 26th of november 2009 the inauguration of the murales took place in the presence of the president of Chile, Michelle Bachelet, the mayor of Quilpue, Mauricio Viñambres, the MP Marcelo Schilling and his wife Loreto Morras...

During her speech, the president Michelle Bachelet expressed her enthousiasm towards this artistic project : " As I go down the stairs of the subway station and when I can contemplate the murales, their colors and their characters fill me with the feeling of happiness, I hope that the community will be delighted with this fantastic public art exhibition. "

At the murales unveiling, Federica Matta spoke about the experience she gained while working with the artists of the Marga-Marga province : " The creation is passed on, as the dream of every artist, by working together with one heart. "
