Culture Has New Home in Nicoya

By Oliver Perez

On Friday May 25th, about 600 Nicoyans witnessed the opening of a new Casa de la Cultura (House of Culture). The new arts building opened its doors in the same spot where the old wooden structure stood. The building has been completely redone, with an investment of 93 million colones.

With the same money, they remodeled the school of music, so from now on, dozens of children and youth will have a convenient and comfortable building for rehearsals and music lessons.

"This is the Casa de la Cultura, where from here on Nicoyans will be able to express their art in this site. The money invested in this building will be of great benefit to future generations," said Marco Jimenez, mayor of Nicoya.

Included in the participants of the inauguration were current President Luis Liberman (Laura Chinchilla was in The Vatican), the Minister of Culture Manuel Obregon and Sinem director, Jorge Guevara.

That day the event was enriched by the Symphony Orchestra. In one of the pieces, the orchestra was accompanied by Minister Manuel Obregón to play “Caballito Nicoyano” (Nicoyan Caballito).

The Casa de la Cultura was united with the School of Music and has a classroom which houses the public library. It also has a computer lab, a meeting room, administrative office and a gallery. The main room of the building is packed with couches and flat screen TVs.
