I come from dry places. I am relatively new at motherhood. I am relatively new to Costa Rica. Therefore, the first downpours to trap me — along with a husband, a 3-year-old and a newborn — inside our small San José apartment filled me with dread.
Lang came up with the idea for a new cancer fundraiser during a conversation with her grandmother, the painter Ana Wien, and began to put together an auction of 40 different art pieces painted by renowned Costa Rican artists. No canvas here: the works were painted on fiberglass heads.
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.
