Next 4th of August opens the exhibition sponsored by FUNIBER and organized by the European University of the Atlantic called “El Cántico del Sol” of Joan Miró. The exhibition will take place in the architectural ensemble of Las Casas del Águila and la Parra in Santillana del Mar (Spain)

The exhibition can be visited from August 4th until September 14th  from 10:00am. to 14:00pm. and from 16:00pm. to 19:00pm, Tuesday to Sunday.

The exhibition, which is part of the cultural work of FUNIBER, is composed of 32 engravings inspired by the poem with that same name that San Francisco de Asís wrote at the beginning of the XIII century and that Joan Miró illustrated in 1975.

In this same line, Federico Fernández, curator of the cultural work of FUNIBER highlights that “it is a work of intense colors that reflects the almost religious and magic part of Miro’s production”. Also, Fernandez stresses that “one can see the deepest respect and admiration they felt for nature, both the Catalan artist and the friar who inspired this work, a work that has now arrived in Santillana del Mar”.

Las Casas del Águila y la Parra is an architectural complex located in the upper area of Plaza Mayor in Santillana del Mar and is formed by two buildings which are connected by a two-floor building, built between the XVI and XVII centuries in which the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports of the Government of Cantabria holds temporary exhibitions.
