The Project

The Project “Pintando Santa Catarina Palopó” is an initiative by Harris and Melissa Whitbeck, two Guatemalans who grew up visiting this population and who have a strong bond with this municipality, its inhabitants and Lake Atitlán.

Pintando Santa Catarina Palopó is a Project that seeks to join the efforts of different sectors (local and international), to achieve a visual work with social impact at a monumental scale in the population of Santa Catarina Palopó, Sololá.

Community participation

The essence of this Project lies in the active participation of the community. This is a project of community self-determination in which the inhabitants themselves create the design that will be materialized in Santa Catarina Palopó.
