Museo de Arte Islita

Authentic Cultural Experience in Costa Rica

  • PuntaIslitaArt

El Museo de Arte Islita es una iniciativa en la que se invita a reconocidos artistas costarricenses a trabajar con los miembros de las comunidades aledañas al Hotel Punta Islita. Murales y esculturas han transformado al pequeño pueblito en un espacio lleno de colores y texturas. Hoy, grupos locales son guiados por la artista costarricense Loida Prétiz, ganadora del Premio Nacional Aquileo Echeverría. El museo rompe con tendencias de turismo de enclave, hilvanando plenamente el contexto social en la experiencia del visitante.

Current Museum Exhibit | Ariela Kader

May 23 - June 24, 2015

The Islita Art Museum is proud to host "Waste Meet Your New Home" by Costa Rican artist Ariela Kader.  A vindication and celebration of the discarded, it is the result of an exploratory process in the town of Islita, where a new life was given to that which ceased to fulfill its original purpose.

Wrappers, plastic bags, bottles, newspapers, cans and other quotidian items find new life through added value. During six weeks, the artist led workshops and artistic interventions with the community, as well as producing her own artwork. The result: a panoply of color, a parade of joy that surges from altering ones gaze upon that which society rejected.
