Art Education Exposition of Southern Sinaloa on the Malecón Today

18.P1000922As we were eating lunch today we were thoroughly enjoying the sailboat regatta that is taking place in the bay. A beautiful day for a regatta! (Click any photo below to see it larger.)

Then, looking down more directly, we noticed lots of people putting up children’s artwork along the malecón. Once we went down to check it out, we learned that between 3500 and 4000 original pieces of art are being displayed on the malecón this afternoon.

1.P1000896Student artists from all over the southern part of the state are exhibiting. It seemed each teacher was taping up his/her own students’ work. We talked to one teacher who had come from Teacapán, and another from Escuinapa. They were so proud, and the students were just glowing! What a terrific use of our beautiful seaside promenade.

At the northern end of the exhibit they have the chairs, podium and sound system set up for the opening ceremony at 5:00 today. In that area they have displayed the work of several invited special artists. That slide show is below. You can click on any photo to see it larger.

The display reaches from just south of Fiesta Land, where the inaugural ceremony with all the dignitaries and families in attendance will be held at 5:00, all the way down to Monos Bichis/Monumento al Pescador. We got in the car to videotape the length of the exhibit, and the video is over ten minutes long! It’s a whole lot of artwork! (Once it’s uploaded I will post that video below.)

The exhibition is only this afternoon/evening, so I urge you to go out and take a look! Congratulations, students!
