La Danza, an Exhibition by Rafael Coronel


By Breyton Méndez

The municipal government, together with the LS/Gallery, is presenting an exhibit by the artist Rafael Coronel. The show is part of the Office of Culture and Traditions’s offerings to mark San Miguel de Allende being named as the American Capital of Culture for 2019.

At a press conference, L/S Gallery founder and director Lourdes Sosa told attendees, “Thank you to the mayor and to [Office of Culture and Traditions director] Paulina Cadena, who have made every effort to offer quality exhibitions like this one to the public of San Miguel de Allende. I also congratulate them for having provided such a wonderful space for cultural events and projects.”

The show will be held in San Miguel’s Municipal Palace exhibition hall and will show more than 20 works by the Zacatecan artist Rafael Coronel. The work reflects the breadth of his diverse works and includes bronze sculptures as well as such important acrylics and oils as La Muerte Caliente, El Universe es de Dos and La Danza.

Secretary of Government and the City Council Gonzalo González said that it is these types of projects that help put San Miguel on the map.

“We want to tell everyone who visits us in San Miguel, and those who live here, that there are works of art that they need to see, explore, and discover,” Cadena added.

Villarreal then opened the exhibition, accompanied by three children to cut the ribbon.

“It is with art, with culture, and with education that we can, from the bottom up, generate a better social life for people,” he said. “I am very pleased that in 2020, with the backing of [Guanajuato] Governor Diego Sinhue and the City Council, we are finally going to start the transformation of this property into the Museum of the City of the People of San Miguel.”

The exhibition will last three months and will be open to the public from 9am to 8pm, Monday to Saturday, and from 9am to 5pm Sundays. Admission is 60 pesos for the visiting public, 30 pesos for Sanmiguelenses showing their voter ID card, as well as for students and seniors. Children attending in groups pay 10 pesos, and residents from rural communities get in free.
