LARIMAR is a cultural space, with the format of an Art and Accommodation Gallery, which complies with health security measures and biosafety protocols for the reopening of museums and galleries, after the precautionary closure, derived from the Covid-19 pandemic.
It has five rooms that, at the same time, are private exhibition rooms for guests; main room and terrace for outdoor activities. Place to exhibit works of recognized and emerging plastic artists, national and international. Its objectives are:
1Establish a space to exhibit plastic arts: painting, engraving, photography, sculpture, as well as select crafts, art objects and antiques, where creators stay, through the residency program for artists and / or visitors.
Create a forum for creators-public dialogue, which encourages creativity through workshops, talks, conferences, interviews, recitals and more.
Offer an integrating site for production, learning and recreation, which transmits an aesthetic and accommodation experience, for the purpose of study, education and enjoyment.
Provide services and / or advice on creative design, audiovisual production and digital communication.
Promote awareness of the individual's relationship with nature, which seeks a Sustainable Environment and the promotion of cultural tourism, complying with protocols for the safety of travelers and visitors.
LARIMAR's name is inspired by a semi-precious stone from the Caribbean, whose coloration contains white, light blue, greenish blue and deep blue. The singularity of the LARIMAR blue is similar to the sky of Oaxaca and the luminosity of the environment, from which the plethora of plastic artists that proliferate in the State is nourished.
LARIMAR has a privileged location, two blocks from the Historic Center of the City of Oaxaca. Surrounded by parks and museums: Museum of the Cultures of Oaxaca, Ethnobotanical Museum, Museum of Philately, Temple of Santo Domingo de Guzmán; of signature and fusion restaurants, headed by internationally recognized chefs. Close to the picturesque neighborhood of Jalatlaco and El Llano park.
With close access to avenues that lead to the Oaxaca City International Airport, the bus terminal and the international highway that connects CDMX-Oaxaca-Istmo.
*(Space that is physically closed due to sanitary restrictions derived from the pandemic, and due to architectural conditioning, but with attention online or through social networks. Probable reopening next May, or when indicated by the green traffic light of the health authorities).
