Arte Vallarta to be Presented at University
The new Arte Vallarta coffee table book will be presented to the student community at the Guadalajara University local campus (CUC) and the general public this coming Thursday, March 10, at 6 pm, at the University’s Peter Grey Museum. Penned by local writer Rubén Cham, the book is a visual account of the development of Puerto Vallarta as a visual arts destination since the 1950s, as seen through the private art collection owned by local patrons Gail and Frank Rudin. The one of a kind tome features works by important local artists, such as Ramón Barragán, Javier Niño, Ada Colorina, Manuel Lepe, Edgar Martínez, and other local creators. With full-page photographs and biographical information on the aforementioned artists, this is the most complete account of the history of visual arts in Puerto Vallarta available today.
