Held on thelast Sunday of each month, Parque de la Expresión takes place in the flat space in frontof the museum, where artists display their works, poets read their poetry and visitorscan enjoy a variety of national creativity.Activities this Sunday will begin with an 11 a.m. concert by the Cartago nationalband, directed by maestro Ricardo Vargas. The band will kick things off with the nationalanthem and follow up with a varied play list. At 2 p.m., the traditional Latin dancegroup El Guarco’s 16 members will put on a presentation directed by Mario Romero.Each month, the museum invites a select group of national artists to display theirworks.
