De Gonzalo Ribero Art Exposition

[August 27, 2015] Thursday

Today, we went to the Centro Pedagógico y Cultural Simón I. Patiño. Simón was apparently a very wealthy Bolivian due to tin mining. He had a huge home, surrounded by a lovely garden. We wanted to have a tour of the home, but that will have to wait, since there was an international conference for addressing the archaeology and ethnohistory of the Bolivian Andes and lowlands. We did wander around the gardens, and the exposition of artwork for an artist named De Gonzalo Ribero, that was in the basement of the home. 

This picture is a photosphere taken on my Nexus 4 of one of the rooms of the exposition. I'm not sure how it will render in the blog, but I'm going to give it a shot:

While we were looking around, the artist himself showed up, and answered all kinds of questions that we had. He was very interesting, and has had his work shown in the United States and Europe, as well as South America.

This is one of his paintings, flanked by the artist, and by Molly:

We'll see if we can get back and get a tour of the house sometime in the future.
