Costa Rican Museum of Art: Transcending the Earthly
The Costa Rican Museum of Art (MAC) invites visitors to contemplate the exhibition series “Transcender lo Terrenal” by Costa Rican artist Luisa González de Sáenz, who designed a space of complex exploration and constant revelations in her artistic production.
In this exhibition, there is a link to spirituality. The pieces also expose intimate and unreal spaces of Gonzalez’s production, where literary, mythological, historic, and fantastic characters coexist.
Her work features 61 pieces, including drawings, paintings, preparatory sketches, and stained glass. The exhibition will be open to the public until the end of March 2023, Tuesday through Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the MAC in La Sabana.
Rojo Vivace at the Juan Santamaria Museum
The Historical and Cultural Museum Juan Santamaría (MHCJS) holds the retrospective exhibition “Rojo Vivace” by Costa Rican artist Dinorah Carballo, featuring paintings, engravings, designs, photographs, and digital art.
This artistic production is the result of combining a sensitive, poetic, abstract, and philosophical approach.
The exhibition also encourages the visiting public to explore transience, waiting, individual and collective identity, constant change, and temporality.
It will be open Tuesday through Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Museum’s headquarters in Alajuela.
Admission to all three art exhibitions is free.
