7th Festival Nacional de Danza Folclórica de Puerto Vallarta
SPRING JAZZ FESTIVAL THURSDAY, MARCH 21 ON LOS MUERTOS BEACH
Cuates y Cuetes presents a spring jazz festival on the beach at Los Muertos pier from 4 pm to 10:00 pm. This year, the festival is a tribute to the musicians who are keeping jazz alive in Puerto Vallarta and will feature some of the artists who performed at the first jazz festival 17 years ago. No cover charge; food and beverage for purchase.
Saturday, March 23rd, Los Mangos Library opens its doors at 6:30 pm to fill the night with light, art, movement, color, and intense, creative energy in the “EMERGENTE” exposition of alternative art, art as you may have never seen it before in this city.
The library’s reason to be is to shelter different cultural manifestations and to put them within the reach of the community, with the purpose of enriching and strengthening values such as respect, integrity, creativity and character. So then, faced with lack of spaces dedicated to the exposure of diverse, rising young, local art, a new generation group of artists, lead and brought together by Gabriela Munguía, have created an event with the finality of revealing talents and showing movements and tendencies that are being generated in all fields of plastic and audiovisual arts throughout the whole world; and showing how these young people are the creators of such movements.
This exposition has been conceived as a party for the senses, an occasion to meet with people and art that proposes, touches, affects, and widens our vision of the region’s artists.
Artistic expressions, such as paintings, photography, etchings, music, short films, object-art, and video projections will be exhibited in the library and its gardens. Los Mangos Library gives itself to the community and promotes culture and art in all of its forms, convinced that it is in places like this where ideas that make a country grow are generated and nurtured.
Come and live the experience of art like never before. All of the pieces will be for sale.
The complete list of participants and displays of their pieces are available at:
