Nov. 8, 2018

The Foro Internacional de Escultores (International Sculptors Forum) will feature artists from France, Poland, Turkey, Japan, Puerto Rico and Mexico.

From November 12 to 24, 2018, the second edition of the International Sculptors Forum will take place at the Centro Universitario de la Costa (CUC), as well as in seven of the city’s neighborhoods.

During the 13 days, these world-class sculptors will create their works in the places where they will remain for posterity. The eight participants who will create the works (whether stainless steel and/or lightweight concrete) are:

  • Nicolas Bertoux (France)
  • Yvonne Domengue (Mexico)
  • Antonio Nava (Mexico)
  • Cynthia Sah (Japan)
  • Melquiades Sastre (Puerto Rico)
  • Ümit Turgay (Turkey)
  • Piotr Twardowski (Poland)
  • Oscar Zamarripa (Mexico)


It is worth noting that sculptor curators María Elena Perales of Puerto Rico and Kemal Tufan of Turkey will attend this forum and that financing for creating the sculptures is the responsibility of the private initiative, but installation and maintenance will be the responsibility of the municipality.

“Vallarta Lifestyles is really well positioned. We are aware of that because we have seen people who arrive to our jewelry with the issue or the advertising in hand asking about the product that is featured there. This dynamic is really interesting for us and makes us glad.”

"Since we started the company we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles, a publication that is considered ‘Puerto Vallarta’s Magazine’ by the quality of its images, content and staff, unique characteristics that encouraged us to say: ‘We have to be in Vallarta Lifestyles’. We know that this magazine is a reference for the target market that we are looking for and we know that being there gives us prestige.”

“In a meeting that we had with the magazine’s founder, he told us about his dream of making a quality and luxury publication because he was convinced that Puerto Vallarta needed that. For that reason, we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles since its beginnings. These days, our brand is very well positioned thanks to the strategic distribution of the magazine, as it helps us reach more potential customers which is a great benefit for us.”
