| The Department of Culture transfers a set of works that were kept to the restaurant El Palacio, in San Javier where they are exposed to the public | The restaurant El Palacio, in San Javier, exhibits on the walls of the dining room a set of paintings from the pictorial collection of the City Council, donated by the Department of Culture in order to collaborate with the establishment and show the public works that were kept.
"In difficult times we have to be next to our shops more than ever," said Mayor José Miguel Luengo yesterday, who together with the Councilor for Culture, David Martínez visited the restaurant led by chef José López, to present the exhibition. Luengo praised the effort that the sector is making and was confident that this type of initiative will add to the task of moving forward.
The councilor for Culture, David Martínez explained that the five oils that decorate the hall come mostly from the works awarded in the national competitions organized by the City of San Javier and except for an abstract work, the rest are locals with a marine predominance. The head of the restaurant, José López thanked the Department of Culture for the transfer of the works that will remain for a year on the walls of the room where, according to what he announced, he plans to continue organizing small artistic exhibitions.
David Martínez recalled that this initiative joins other similar ones with which it is intended that works that are kept for lack of exhibition spaces can see the light and be admired by the public, in addition to adding an attraction to the establishments that temporarily host them.
