The Guanacaste Museum


Although Liberia is small, there are things to do here! Here is another blog, by our Estelar teacher Greta Phillips, about something she recently did in Liberia.

The Museo de Guanacaste, right in the center of Liberia, hosts a variety of cultural events.  This month there were art exhibits featuring artists from all over Guanacaste.  About ten artists were featured, mainly painters and photographers.

Beautiful paintings in the museum

As we signed the guest book, we noticed some Australian and German visitors had recently visited the museum, too.  Reading the artist bios and descriptions of the paintings was a fun way to practice Spanish, and the art certainly gave us an interesting perspective of Guanacaste.  One theme, for example, was beautiful, colorful laundry hanging out to dry.  There were bold portrayals of bull fights and people on stilts, as well as stunning photographs capturing the sun setting over the Pacific beaches.

Thank you Greta Phillips for this contribution!
