The Museo de Arte Costarricense inaugurates the Exposición Filatélica Nacional 2012, title “Centenario de la Aviación,” at 5 p.m. today with an official ceremony.
This year there will be 30 different collections of stamps dedicated to the history of aviation in the country. The exhibit will run until Feb. 4. During the exhibition there will also be stamp- related workshops, conferences and free guided tours of the museum.
The exposition was first established in 1934, said César Hidalfo, member of the Federación de Entidades Filatélicas de Costa Rica. There are officially four associations in the country that are dedicated to stamps, said Hidalfo.
“This one exposition is special because we are celebrating aviation through ‘Centenario de la Aviación,’” said Hidalfo.
