Premio Nacional de la Plata �Hugo Salinas Price� (�Hugo Salinas Price� National Silver Awards). Every two years we pay homage to Mr. Hugo Salinas Price through the Premio Nacional de la Plata Hugo Salinas Price, a pageant designed to reward and acknowledge the finest in Mexican silver craftwork. Since 2002, Fomento Cultural Grupo Salinas joined efforts with the Social Development Secretariat (Secretar�a de Desarrollo Social (SEDESOL)), the National Foundation for the Promotion of Craftwork (Fondo Nacional para el Fomento de las Artesan�as (FONART)) and since de 2006, with the Popular Art Museum (Museo de Arte Popular (MAP)), to consolidate the scope of this pageant on a national level and provide better incentives for silver craftsmen in Mexico.
Mural de la Plata (Silver Mural). As an initiative by Ricardo Salinas Pliego and his wife, Mar�a Laura Medina de Salinas, this Silver Mural was created. They came up with the original idea and proposed the creation of a silver mural based on a Mexican subject. This is how they discovered a prehispanic stamp that served as the origin of the mural that today hosts visitors in the lobby of the Grupo Salinas headquarters. A product of wit and creativity of Mexican craftsmen, this is a legal Mexican .970 silver piece, named Vida and Movimiento (Life and Movement) � and that according to its maker, known craftsman Ezequiel Tapia, is the first and only silver piece of its size.
