The comic features 17 different characters, including Carilo, a child obsessed with soccer; Jimmy, who believes in aliens; and Mariela, an environmentalist who wears a heart in honor of sea turtle conservationist Jairo Mora.
Tonight's auction at the National Gallery, housed within the Children's Museum in downtown San José, will feature more than 100 art pieces by different renowned artists, including Man Yu Fung paintings, and raise money for children's charities.
A total of 20 pieces are on display, using media including paint, animation, videos and mixed media on paper. The current exhibit is called Tándem, a reference to the process both artist went through to prepare and coordinate their work: peadling together, as on a tandem bicycle, to attain a unique artistic outcome.
“Over View” is a touring exhibit that features five Costa Rican videographers. This is good for the home team, and it’s exciting to see creative Costa Ricans featured prominently, but the exhibit’s real achievement is its diversity.
