Centro Cultural de Orocovis - Dec 2016/Jan 2017

Santos from Museo de los Santos permanent collection were displayed as part of a special exhibition in Galeria San Juan Bautista in Orocovis, Puerto Rico from December 2016 - January 2017.

Presented as a complement to the annual Encuentro de Santeros, the exhibition featured antique and contemporary carvings of carvers from the Orocovis area.

Since Orocovis is the geographic center of the island - high up in the mountains of Puerto Rico - it is a center of Puerto Rican and 'Jibero' (country folk) traditions.

If you want to spend a day in a very traditional Puerto Rican town - check out Disfruta Orocovis website or their Disfruta Orocovis page on Facebook.   Both sites have information on events, museums, restaurants and activities for a great day in Orocovis!
