Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – Save the date, art enthusiasts and animal lovers! On Friday, February 16, Puerto Vallarta’s Oficina de Proyectos Culturales (OPC) will showcase two captivating exhibitions, “Los Doscientos” and “Monster for Animals,” curated by the esteemed Rafael Doctor Roncero. Having made their debut in Spain and Costa Rica, these exhibitions promise a unique blend of contemporary art and a noble cause.
The “Los Doscientos” press, known for its dedication to contemporary art and photography, takes center stage with a mission to redefine the art-collecting experience. Each publication released by the press is a limited edition, consisting of just 200 copies, and includes an original artwork. This exclusive approach aims to provide the public with a distinct model of collecting that goes beyond the conventional art scene.
Adding a philanthropic touch to the event is “Monster for Animals” (monstersforanimals.com), a transformative project where images from the annals of photography and contemporary art undergo interventions to create new works.
These unique pieces are then exchanged for donations, with the proceeds going towards supporting animal shelters, rescue organizations, and sanctuaries. In this edition, the benefactors are The Sula Society and Friends of Puerto Vallarta Animals.
By attending this one-of-a-kind exhibition, patrons not only immerse themselves in the world of contemporary art but also contribute to the welfare of animals in need. Mark your calendars for Friday, February 16, as Puerto Vallarta becomes the nexus of creativity and compassion. Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of this impactful intersection between art and animal rescue!
