Galería Corsica Donates New Sculpture to the Puerto Vallarta’s Malecón
Lluvia (Rain) is the name of a new monumental sculpture that is now part of the artistic landscape of the Puerto Vallarta’s Malecón.
Developed by Jovian, a Mexican plastic artist, the three-and-a-half-meter-high, 650-kilogram and 60,000 USD-value sculpture was donated to our destination through Galería Corsica.
Located practically at the intersection of Galeana and Paseo Díaz Ordaz streets, Lluvia presents the figure of a young man who, with open arms and gaze to the sky, welcomes both residents and visitors alike.
During the official opening ceremony were present Arturo Dávalos, mayor of Puerto Vallarta; Candelaria Tovar, president of the Sistema DIF Municipal; Jean Pierre Renucci, owner of Galería Corsica and Marina de los Santos, director of Instituto Vallartense de Cultura.
With this installation, 149 sculptures are currently registered throughout the city. Of these, 34 are located on the shore running from the start of the Malecón to Pilitas Beach.
Jovian, who has been a Puerto Vallarta resident for 21 years, is a visual artist whose work has been exhibited in museums and galleries in Mexico, United States, Hong Kong, Singapore and France.
