“Illuminados” by El Paso based husband and wife artist team “Los Dos”, Ramon and Christian Cardenas, is a mural located under the Hays Street Bridge. The artwork is inspired by the U.S.-Mexico border and the people who live there. It depicts a figure wearing a folkloric mask seated on a magic carpet “flying across borders.” This public art project was commissioned by Public Art San Antonio and was supported in part by the 2012-2017 Bond Program and the National Endowment for the Arts Our Town Grant Program.
