The Embassy of Spain in Washington, D.C. presents the Spring/Summer 2013 edition of the cultural program SPAIN arts & culture Spring/Summer 2013.
On this occasion, the program dedicates special attention to the celebration of the 500th anniversary of the discovery of Florida. Miami, St. Augustine, and Punta Gorda are some of the locations elected to commemorate Juan Ponce de León’s arrival to Florida in the spring of 1513.
Visual arts, performing arts, music, architecture, design, literature, and urban culture will be represented in the more than 100 events organized for this season.
The program includes more than 23 cities in the United States, and for the first time, 6 Canadian cities (Moncton, Montréal, Ottawa, Québec City, Toronto, and Vancouver) in collaboration with the Embassy of Spain in Ottawa.
In this new season, SPAIN arts & culture wants to support the many Spanish creators that have decided to overcome the challenging times by presenting their work nternationally. While some have spent years establishing themselves in the international market, others have just launched their brand. Crafts & Talent from Spain is a line of products designed exclusively by some of our country’s most talented firms. Beginning this spring, we will give our followers access to these unique collections thanks to the collaboration between these artists and SPAIN arts & culture.
The cover of the catalogue is the work of Valencian graphic novelist Paco Roca, portraying the street scene of Miami which, according to the author, conveys “a hustle and bustle very similar to that of the Spanish cities”.
