Local artist Zack Meyer and his crew are decorating the buildings of downtown Belen with colorful murals.  There's something for everyone:  trains, horses and people of all kinds.  My favorite is the beautiful modern girl, with the bird, on the pink background. (I see some manga influence in that one.)  Some are easily viewed from Main Street and others are like hidden treasures discovered only by peeking around buildings.  If you love street art take a walking tour of Belen.
