Artists will be getting another gallery in which to display their art.
The Teatro Popular Melico Salazar has made an agreement with the Museo de Arte Costarricense to establish the Galería Dinorah Bolandi on the second floor of the theater. Theater spokespersons said that the new gallery reflects the view that visual artists need more places to display their works.
The gallery will be open at times when there are functions at the theater.
Dinorah Bolandi Jiménez was the daughter of a photographer and musicians. She studied for a decade in the United States and also worked as a press photographer. She also taught at the public universities and received in 1990 the Premio Nacional de Cultura Magón. She died in 2004.
The gallery opens officially tonight at 7 o’clock, and the first exhibition will be works of Ms. Bolandi from the collection of the Museo de Arte Costarricense. The theater is across from and north of Parque Central on Avenida Secunda.
