The sixth and final Art City Tour for 2014 will be Friday. This is a change in the day of the week.
In addition, the event, which features 140 activities is being called the Noche en blanco, and participants are encouraged to wear white.
The event begins at 5 p.m., and all of the public museums and many private galleries will be open for visitors. And they are free.
Art City Tour has become a popular evening event, and transportation is provided. A lot of participants prefer to ride their bikes.
The Ministerio de Cultura y Juventud, which operates most of the museums, has a large role in the evening.
The Friday event has been fused with Nuit Blanche, the cultural program that originated in Paris, France.
Among other presentations the Compañía Nacional de Danza and students from the Instituto Nacional de la Música will offer “Sombras Blancas,” choreographed by Pablo Caravaca, at four museums a half hour apart starting at 6:30 p.m. The museums are the Museo Nacional, the Museo del Jade, the Museo del Oro and the Museo de Arte Costarricense. Alianza Francesa also is sponsoring this and offers an additional 9 p.m. Compañía Nacional de Danza performance at its headquarters on Avenida 7.
