Tico Artists on Display In Washington, D.C.

The artwork of nine Costa Rican artists is on display through Aug. 10 at the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) CulturalCenter in Washington, D.C. The exhibit, entitled “Young Costa Rican Artists: Nine Proposals,” demonstrates recent trends in Costa Rican art.

Featured at the center are 29 works created with a variety of media and techniques, from painting and conventional photography to digital and interactive art, as well as art made from drawing wire and recycled materials.

The nine artists were chosen from 34 applicants who responded to an open call from the IDB for Costa Rican artists younger than 40 to submit portfolios.

They include Víctor Agüero, Jorge Albán, Tamara Avalos, Paco Cervilla, Carolina Guillermet, José Alberto Hernández, Sebastián Mello, Francisco Munguía and Guillermo Vargas.

The exhibit was co-organized by Costa Rica’s Central Bank Museums, and will go on display next March in the temporary exhibit room of the museum’s facility beneath Plaza de la Cultura in downtown San José.
