Fundación Iberdrola España joins the celebration of the Bicentenary of the Prado Museum.
Fundación Iberdrola collaborates with the Prado Museum in the development of the Extraordinary Program for the Commemoration of its Bicentennial and, specifically, with the support of the traveling exhibition “The Prado in the Streets”, to which it will contribute 180,000 euros , conceived as an educational activity that will be installed outdoors.
Made up of life-size photographic reproductions of 50 of the institution’s most emblematic paintings, “The Prado in the Streets” will travel throughout 2018-2019 to various locations in Spain.
The exhibition will remain for a period of three to four weeks in each venue and will be accompanied by a general text on the Prado Museum and four dedicated to the main pictorial schools that make up its collection. A program of educational and cultural activities will be developed around it.
