From the 13th to the 25th of November, we will host the “great sculptural workshop” of Puerto Vallarta.  UdG CUC in conjunction with private initiatives and the H. Ayuntamiento of Puerto Vallarta, the “International Forum of Sculptors – Puerto Vallarta 2017”, will be held on campus.

The Rector of CUCosta, Dr. Marco Antonio Cortés says the forum is to enrich the artistic urban heritage of Puerto Vallarta and to provide the city with monuments that strengthen the social and civic fabric of the city, while providing the residents with collective pride and identification.


“With this forum, we want to open a permanent space for the realization of large format sculptural work and to promote innovative exhibition spaces.”


Eleven internationally renowned artists from Germany, Egypt, Spain, Greece, Holland, Hungary, Iran, Mexico, Peru, Taiwan and Turkey, will arrive in Puerto Vallarta to create and conclude, in just two weeks, this major sculptural project.


Once completed, seven monumental sculptures will be donated, thanks to the sponsorship from Tafer Resorts The Villa Group, and Luis Fernando González Corona.
