“Light and Shadows” exhibit opening
By Jade Arroyo
On July 18 the Cultural Center “El Nigromante” (popularly known as Bellas Artes) held an opening of a retrospective exhibit by artist David Kestenbaum, “Light and Shadows.” To cut the ribbon and officially open the exhibition to the public the secretary of the State Tourism Department, Fernando Olivera Rocha, and artist Mai Onno, who is Kestenbaum’s mother, were on hand.
A varied group of artists, cultural promoters and art enthusiasts congregated to see the art that day. In total, the exhibition consisted of 33 works (mainly sculptures and watercolors) distributed through the Sala Principal, Sala de Arte Mexicano and the hallways. A large sculpted bull was located outside, near the door.
Recently Bellas Artes came under the direction of Alberto Lenz and academic coordinator Mónica Hoth; this is the first exhibition to be organized by them.
The Cultural Center “El Nigromante” is open to the public from 10am to 6pm Monday through Saturday and on Sundays from 10am to 3pm.
“Lights and Shadows” will remain on display until October of this year. Don’t miss the chance to see this exhibition.
