Along with permanent and temporary exhibitions of great masters of the plastic arts, Mérida’s museums will also host multidisciplinary shows, jazz, trova, folk, pre-Hispanic music and more on Saturday, May 28 at “La Noche Blanca. Vivir Otra Vez”.

From the Museo de la Canción Yucateca, where the program of activities of these art centers was presented today, the Director of Culture Irving Berlín Villafaña explained that in each of these spaces there is a different cultural offer to enjoy on the same night. “The museums are houses of the time, they are treasures of collective memory whose offerings come to reinforce the joy and coexistence in Mérida.”

She highlighted the presence of members of the artistic community whose talent will add experiences to La Noche Blanca, such as Vania Vallares, the young Valeria Jasso, Iván Kapellmann, Mauricio Bonfiglio, the winners of Yucatecan Trova music contests, among others, along with the art offerings that museums already provide on a daily basis.

Mrs. Elena Fernández del Moral, secretary of the Board of Directors of the Museo de la Canción Yucateca, thanked the Culture Department of the Mérida City Hall, headed by Mayor Renán Barrera Concha, for considering the space to experience the La Noche Blanca program once again, giving continuity to the Yucatecan Trova music and the language of the new values and generations of singers.

“With a painting workshop for children, the MACAY also bets on the new generations and young talent in the state. The sculpture exhibition “10/30. Rufino Tamayo”, to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Mexican painter’s death, in coordination with Casa Vico, will be set up in the Pasaje de la Revolución, where “Folk, Bolero y Brujería” with Iván Kapellmann, Mala Mala and Mis Ojos Tristes, and rock with Sonido del Eco, will also be performing”, Fernández del Moral continued.

“For the museum, being in La Noche Blanca is symbolic, there will be many surprises as we take to the streets again, not only with the visual arts but also with music, theater, dance, literature, and more,” he concluded.

At the Casa de Montejo Museum, it will be possible to discover the architectural richness of the “Convents of the XVI Century in Mexico” through art photographs by Beverly Spears starting at 8:00 pm. An hour later art will give way to music with the Gala Concert of the UADY String Orchestra, with 22 musicians playing works by Mozart. Bach and Pedro Herrera, among others, and the program Jazz Sensitive: Jazzeando Los 80’s, (Jazzing the 80s) with special arrangements and the talent of Mauricio Bonfiglio.
