Puerto Vallarta’s first International Sculptors Forum was announced at the end of last month during a press conference that was held at Hotel Mousai, which is situated within the Garza Blanca Preserve in Puerto Vallarta. Luis Fernando González Corona, president of Tafer Hotels & Resorts, gathered alongside Arturo Dávalos Peña, the Mayor of Puerto Vallarta, and Dr. Marco Antonio Cortés, the Dean of the CUCosta University of Guadalajara campus, to officially announce the International Sculptors Forum. This special event will be held at the CUCosta campus in Puerto Vallarta from November 13th through November 25th.
A sculptural workshop unlike any other
Thanks to the help of Puerto Vallarta’s City Council, CUCosta and local private benefactors such as Luis Fernando Gonzalez Corona, president of Tafer Hotels & Resorts, the intention of the event is to transform Puerto Vallarta into a citywide cultural workshop. 11 acclaimed international sculptors from countries including Egypt, Germany, Greece, Holland, Hungary, Iran, Mexico, Peru, Spain, Taiwan and Turkey will be joining Puerto Vallarta’s first International Sculptors Forum. Celebrated sculptor and academic Kemal Tufan, who hails from the University of Marmara in Turkey, will be organizing the event with the help of selected students who are part of the Visual Arts degree program at CUCosta.
Puerto Vallarta has a new cultural experience
Vallarta Lifestyles, a prominent local magazine in Puerto Vallarta, was present at the press conference, during which Dr. Marco Antonio Cortés was quoted as declaring, “With this forum, we want to offer new tourist attractions that contribute to convene a new profile of tourists, more oriented to the enjoyment of cultural, material and symbolic heritage.” There is no doubt that this unique event is poised to elevate the cultural and artistic aspects of the seaside destination to new levels of greatness.
To be donated: seven sculptures!
Luis Fernando Gonzalez Corona, businessman and president of Tafer Hotels & Resorts as well as the Villa Group, extended his support for the cultural project together with other private benefactors. In total, there will be seven sculptures to be donated, which will then head to some of the most beloved neighborhoods in Puerto Vallarta. It is possible that a competition will be held between the local communities as they vie to bring the sculptures to their corner of town.
The Art Collection at Garza Blanca Preserve
Tafer Hotels & Resorts has long been committed to the importance of the arts. There are several beautiful sculptures located around the Garza Blanca Preserve such as a noteworthy collection of buddhas that have been dispersed throughout the grounds. Additionally, there is a recently obtained collection of paintings and sculptures created by distinguished local artists including Héctor Montes, Hugo Barajas and Ramiz Barquet.
