Some 52 artists have created 104 works using found objects, including many that show the ravages of time.
This is the new show that runs until Jan. 30 at the Galería Nacional of the Centro Costarricense de Ciencia y Cultura. The facility is part of the Museo de los Niños.
The works include worn shoes, pieces of metal, discarded hammocks, bottles, old televisions, pieces of wood and even the shell of a hand grenade that has been spiffed up with rhinestones. All the artists are Costa Rican.
Artists Luis Chacón, Vita Cascante and Rodrigo Rubí are curators of the show. The museo is visible north of Avenida 9 in north San José.
