The Rodríguez-Acosta Foundation celebrates the Day of Andalusia with guided visits and educational workshops
The Rodríguez-Acosta Foundation is celebrating the Day of Andalusia on Friday 28th February with a programme of activities which includes guided visits and educational workshops aimed at all the family.
This morning, the Director of the Council of the Alhambra and Generalife, María del Mar Villafranca, and the President of the Foundation, the artist Miguel Rodríguez-Acosta, presented the activities planned for this public holiday in which the “involvement of the people of Granada” will be vital. “We want them to walk up the hill to the Alhambra to celebrate the Day of Andalusia and discover some of the secrets stowed within the walls of this Foundation”.
The activities planned for the day include a Photography Workshop in the Gardens of the Foundation organized by the photographer Pepe Marín, which will begin in the Main Courtyard of the Rodríguez-Acosta Foundation. A maximum of 25 people can take part, so those interested must reserve a place in advance at email@example.com
One of the special events on the programme will be the opening to the public for the first time of the painter José María Rodríguez-Acosta’s studio: “It will be a unique opportunity to visit this space, which remains exactly as originally conceived by José María Rodríguez-Acosta”, said the Foundation’s President, Miguel Rodríguez-Acosta. Three visits are planned over the course of the day at 11:00, 12:00 and 16:00 hrs. The visit will take in the second floor of the house, where the painter’s studio is, as well as the Foyer, the Library, the Gardens, the Underground Passages and the Gómez-Moreno Museum.
On the visit entitled “Discover, look and build. A family visit to the workshop” those attending will be able to take part in an arts and crafts workshop coordinated by Marrón Creativo, the aim of which will be “to discover the gardens”, as a source of inspiration for making a Japanese paper lantern. Meeting Point: Patio de los Pomelos (Court of the Grapefruit-Trees), before going on to the Gardens, Underground Passages and ending up at the Gómez-Moreno Institute in the Calle Aire Alta, and the Rodríguez-Acosta Foundation Workshop. This activity will take about two hours.
For those interested in art, we suggest a visit to the Gómez-Moreno Museum, from 17:00 hrs, when the DA.TE DANZA dance company will be performing an adapted version of their show “Sueña”, a pleasure to be enjoyed with all the family.
Places on all these events are limited, so those wishing to attend must reserve and confirm the reservation by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
