Walking among art
By Jade Arroyo
What better way to spend an afternoon than looking at art and having a drink with friends? On May 3 the latest Art Walk was held at the design center Fábrica La Aurora. The Art Walk is a tradition there, as are such events in art districts all over the world.
One of the galleries that showed new work was OMO Gallery, which features the exhibit “Reinas” (Queens) by artist Jeanne Saade Palombo, which will be up through June 7.
The other new exhibit was “Viscerales Internos” (Inner Viscerals) by Lucas Rise, at Kuro Gallery, open through May 20. These two exhibits are completely different in style, and it is worthwhile to see them both.
For those who don’t know the history of the design center, the name Fábrica La Aurora comes from the building’s past. It used to be a textile factory, one of the main sources of labor at the beginning of the 20th century in San Miguel. Remains of the original machines can be seen on the premises. Besides galleries, it is home to terrific restaurants, many shops and a coffee shop.
Fábrica La Aurora is located slightly outside the center of the city, on Calzada de la Aurora. It is open daily.
