This May, art enthusiasts can explore an entire circuit of art in both the neighborhoods of Retiro and Barrio Norte where numerous art galleries, museums, and culture centers will display various works of art for the public’s enjoyment. The event stretches from Callo to Plaza San Martin and from Libertador to Tucuman, and offers free transportation between these places during the entire event night.
On Friday, May 29th, starting at 7pm Gallery Nights will begin, an event organized by the Arte al Dia (magazine, AdnCultura (La Nacion), and the Ministry of Culture in Buenos Aires. There will be a myriad of activities to go along with the art, including live music, videos, shows, and contests.
