What is Hygge? This Danish word is the essence of feeling a warm glow from the inside out. A place inviting of a cozy, gracious atmosphere. Mérida’s artists display their hygge at La Cúpula, while guests feel the open-hearted cultural awareness at this unique corner of this magical city.
La Cúpula has elevated Mérida’s artistic showcase of masterpiece composers. From portraits to jewelry, and fabrics to sculpture, the center is curated to inspire the story of art. Not only a display of artists’ work, however a gathering place for yoga, wine events, documentary screenings and more. La Cúpula has built a sanctuary for the artistic community.
Portraying art in all forms, Mérida’s cultural phenomenon is located steps from the famous tree-lined street, Paseo de Montejo. The historic dome where La Cúpula lives and breathes emotion of artistic expression in all forms, is in itself, stunning.
Artists from across the globe travel to take up residency to create and showcase their work, and locally residing international artists contribute to its legacy. With weekly events, the nonprofit has something for everyone.
A recent interview with Canadian artist extraordinaire, Ric Kokotovich, proved his inner hygge. His soul poured out in his photography transposed into iridescent pieces of Mexico heritage and Yucatecan culture in his exhibit ‘Modern Women’. The beauty heart-stirring, and the unconventional shapes challenging the imagination. His brilliant mind expands what you may have never considered pure art. View Ric’s work on display at Rosas & Xocolate through June 15, 2017.
La Cúpula is a breath of fresh air. A beautiful place for stirring emotion and connecting to beautiful stories written through art.
