Castellon Opening


On Friday March 14, over 300 people filled the marble-lined foyer of the Museo de Almería for the opening of the exhibit “Federico Castellón: de Almería a Nueva York.” Along with dozens of original prints and drawings and several paintings, the exhibit includes illustrated books, personal letters and family photos, and a recorded interview with the artist. The setting is outstanding, a well-designed exhibit space within a light-filled modern building. In fact, the museum was recently nominated for the European Museum of the Year award, which has previously been awarded to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.

The opening received press coverage in several regional papers, including Ideal Almeria. More photos of the exhibit can be found on my Flickr page here
