Greetings loyal reader! Join Bruce and Mary as they accidentally experience a little culture in their adopted city of Merida, which was the cultural capital of the Americas in 2000. As usual, for those of youÂ who prefer to view Bruce’s post from the original blog-site, please click here.
On our way to the gym we encountered the most fantastic bronze sculptures right on Paseo de Montejo, the Champs-Elysees of Mexico. I know, I make this reference every time but it really is an incredibly beautiful boulevard with the French Colonial architecture of the grand buildings fronting Paseo it is most appropriate. So later in the day we took a leisurely stroll down Paseo to take in all of these striking works. It has been over a year since Paseo has been adorned by Objetos de Arte, so this expo is very exciting. And being Dali fans we really appreciate these wild sculptures by the hand of British-born Mexican Leonora Carrington, one of the greatest surrealists in the world and what is really incredible is some of this work was created this very year by this 93 year old icon.
After our tour we did a little research and we find that our charismatic and photogenic mayor, Anjelica, in concert with the State of Yucatan has brought Leonora Carrington’s traveling exposition to Paseo as a celebration of the commitment to rejuvenate this signature avenue of Merida.Â So my friends, enjoy this mesmerizing journey through Leonora Carrington’s Celtic mythology in bronze.
And there you have it, my friends, a virtual tour down Paseo Montejo’s Leonora Carrington exposition. I hope you enjoyed it.
Thanks for visiting gentle reader. Bruce is curious if you prefer these photorama posts over the the previous text heavy buggers. Bruce does, as he is basically a pretty lazy guy and these posts are much easier to do. However he is happy to comply with readers’ desires. Please let him know.Â Hasta Pronto!
