Temp'i mi Ten
Selebrando Bida

By Saida Hernandez

Date: September 18 till October 31

The exhibition Temp’i mi ten - selebrando bida (From my time - celebrate life) shows a nostalgic collection of stories captured on canvas. These detailed stories of Curaçao in years gone by may be considered as a unique and original contribution to the preservation of our cultural heritage. Chandeliers, rocking chairs, Thonet wicker furniture, side tables, crocheted tablecloths, balconies with wooden shutters and nostalgic vistas. Everything delicately finished with the warm, cheerful colors that are so typical of Saida’s personality and her work.
