International Art Festival in Santo Domingo

The First International Art Festival (Fiart 2009) will take place this year at the Palace of Fine Arts (Palacio de Bellas Artes) located on the corner of Independencia and Maximo Gomez. It seeks to follow in the footsteps of the very successful International Book Fair, now in its 12th year. This year the event will be dedicated to Dominican master painter Ivan Tovar, known for his surrealistic art, and international sculptor Fernando Botero of Colombia. Botero has a sculpture located at the entrance to the Santo Domingo Hilton. The event is scheduled for 20-24 May. Also coming is Cuban painter, Pedro Pablo Oliva, who won the Cuban national arts award in 2006. The event opens with a special RD$8,000 per couple event on 20 May, but subsequent day exhibits are open to the public.
