Urban Art Festival Celebrates San José
In celebration of San José being declared the Latin American-Iberian Cultural Capital this year, the Municipality of San José held an urban art festival last weekend in the downtown Art Plaza.
The three-day festival was held to promote “natural creativity and imagination” through painting, drawing and sculpting by a variety of contemporary artists, according to a statement from the municipality.
The event also created a space for the public to try their hands at art through origami, pottery, sidewalk painting and contemporary dance workshops held throughout the weekend. The work of artists from around the country was also for sale.
On Saturday evening, the plaza transformed into an outdoor café with cold and hot coffees and pastries available as pedestrians strolled through exhibits and took in musical, dance and theatrical performances.
A performance by international award winning singer Humberto Vargas topped off the night Friday, and Grupo Las Tortugas played for crowds Saturday.
