The activity of the MCI is diverse and many research projects have been or are being performed related to Mural Art / Street Art.

The main research of our MCI since 2009 has been the social role of the Uruguayan murals of the 20th century as a drive and model of sustainable heritage activation. Our aim has been to promote and activate the cultural significance of the mural painting production created in Uruguay during the 20th century which represents local spaces and identity. We can highlight as key points that the MCI has performed for achieving a sustainable social and economic development, the following:

  1. The preparation of a patrimonial activation process of the contemporary mural production
  2. The inventory of 850 contemporary mural paintings
  3. The scientific cataloguing of 40 relevant murals
  4. The identification of the heritage resources related to the mural production by the use of drones
  5. The design of a sustainable museographical project from a citymarketing perspective
