Colour of Winter

13Jan

If you are passionate about arts and visiting more exhibitions is among your new year’s resolutions, you might find this week’s blog quite interesting.  

On the 12th of December a new exhibition called “Colour of Winter” opened in Mijas Pueblo.

“Colour of Winter” is a collective exhibition that includes the works of 13 national and international artists linked to the beautiful village of Mijas.

This exhibition is displayed in the Mijas Arts Center, located in Plaza Virgen de la Peña, and it can be visited until Thursday the 30th of January.

The Mijas Arts Center was founded in 1972 to encourage interest in the arts and to provide spaces for artists to work.

If you are currently on holiday with us at Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, and you had planned to go to the lovely village of Mijas, we recommend you visit this great exhibition.

Enjoy arts in Costa del Sol!

Exhibition about Japan in CAC Mijas

28Jan

At Hotel Florida Spa we are aware many of you quite like art, so because of this we frequently use this blog to recommend you some of the many great exhibitions we have the fortune to have available in Costa del Sol.

Today is one of these occasions as since the 30th of November and until the 27th of February CAC Mijas is housing a very interesting exhibition called “Japan: Culture and Tradition”.

This exhibition is on display in Exhibition Room number 2 of CAC Mijas and its purpose is to celebrate the 150th anniversary of diplomatic relationships between Spain and Japan.

In CAC Mijas now, you can see many beautiful engravings in rice paper from the 19th Century by some of Japan’s most famous artists.

These works show Japanese everyday life scenes and several characters like emperors, samurais and geishas.

Apart from the engravings there is also a crystal urn with a “kabuto”, which is a type of helmet used by ancient Japanese warrior, as well as a “katana”.

As we have said in previous blogs when we have recommended CAC Mijas, this museum is in the centre of Mijas Pueblo, in calle Malaga, and it is open Monday to Saturday from 10 P.M to 6 P.M.

CAC Mijas is a very popular museum in Costa del Sol. Its regular entry price to access all facilities of the museum is 3 euros, and the price for groups and over 65s is only 2 euros.

If you are planning to visit Mijas soon we recommend you visit this interesting exhibition about the Empire of the Rising Sun!
