Flagstone art to raise money for landslide-devastated Calle Lajas
Forty-five artists have applied their creativity and talent to simple flagstones – “lajas” in Spanish – to raise money for Calle Lajas, the neighborhood that was devastated by the Nov. 4 landslide in San Antonio de Escazú, west of the capital (TT, Nov. 5 and 12, 2010).
The “Lajas por Lajas” exhibit and sale will take place May 11 starting at 7:30 p.m. in the Salón El Trapiche at the Costa Rica Country Club in San Rafael de Escazú. A catalog of the works may be viewed online at http://acav-costarica.blogspot.com, or email email@example.com for information.
