Cuenca hosts from today ‘Museorum’, a new outdoor exhibition cycle that aims to bring the art of the museums of Castilla-La Mancha to its citizens. Formed by 42 panels, it offers through photographs a selection of the most representative pieces of the five provincial galleries, some of which date back more than 3.5 million years.
‘Museorum is another example of our shared commitment in the region to the care, maintenance, and promotion of art and culture’. This was emphasized by Fernando García, president of the Fundación Iberdrola España at this morning’s event, where the exhibition was inaugurated by Dario Dolz, Darío Dolz, mayor of Cuenca, and Rosa Ana Rodríguez, councilor of Education, Culture, and Sports.
Among the pieces on display are the Caballero de Los Villares, the Roman Dolls of Ontur, the Lekanis from the necropolis of El Toril, the Visigothic Cancel from the basilica of Eio, the ‘Candil de piquera’ from Liétor, the ‘Cruz de término de Albacete’, the ‘Dolorosa de Salzillo’ and the ‘Portrait of Alberto Sánchez’ by Benjamín Palencia, all from the Museum of Albacete.
From the Museum of Cuenca, in particular, the Idol of Chillarón, the Equestrian Scepter of Puebla del Salvador, the Ballast of Ercávica, the Bust of Lucio César of Ercávica, the Venus of Noheda, the Visigothic Earrings in gold of Fuentes, the Islamic Capital of Torre Mangana and the Transit of San Julián by Giuseppe Simonelli will be on display.
“Museorum” begins in Cuenca and will continue through Alcolea de Calatrava, Torrijos, Tobarra, Cifuentes, Bolaños de Calatrava, Quintanar del Rey, Illescas, and La Roda. Humanes will be the last stage of this exhibition cycle in the region.
