Friday kicks off a big weekend of culture downtown

The very popular Art City Tour will have its final edition of the year Friday.

This is the program in which many of the city’s cultural sites throw open their doors for free. Buses are available to transport participants from one location to another.

The program designed by Gam Cultural has the support of the Ministerio de Cultura y Juventud. A little more than 1,000 persons tour the museums and galleries each time the event is held. The ministry said that in the 23 earlier editions there were 26,477 participants.

Buses are not required for transportation, and the ministry said that bikes or foot power also is allowed.

Friday the Art City Tour will coincide with Nuit blanche (Night in White), sponsored by Alianza Francesa de Costa Rica. This means that the activities will begin earlier at 5 p.m. and last until midnight with many more cultural attractions.

The Parque España, Parque Morazán and the Jardín de Paz will be locations for such events as a run up to the weekend’s Enamórate de tu Ciudad, which will offer Friday, Saturday and Sunday the Encuentro Nacional de Artistas Visuales.

The Museo de Arte y Diseño Contemporáneo, the Museo Nacional each have new exhibitions that will be open.
