The Punta Cana Macao Energy Consortium (CEPM) and Evergo, in collaboration with the Mayor’s Office of the National District and the Embassy of the Dominican Republic to the Kingdom of Spain, presented the first Dominican “Meninas”.
The piece, titled “Dominican Faces”, is on display since Tuesday, April 19 and will remain for 30 days in the Colonial City’s Colon Park, for the enjoyment of local and foreign visitors.
The presentation was led by Roberto Herrera, country manager of InterEnergy Group, parent company of CEPM and Evergo, and the mayor of the National District, Carolina Mejía.
“From CEPM and Evergo, as companies that provide energy solutions and electric mobility, we work every day to promote the development of Dominican tourism at all levels, inside and outside the country, connecting with its valuable diversity, capacity for innovation and elements that make it unique as a worldwide reference,” he said.
He thanked the initiative presented by the ambassador of the Dominican Republic to the Kingdom of Spain, Juan Bolívar Díaz, and now welcomed by Mayor Carolina Mejía.
On her side, Carolina Mejía said: “From the Mayor’s Office of the National District we encourage our parks to be scenarios of healthy recreation and good use of public space, that is why we value this alliance to make available to the citizens a work of art like the Dominican “Menina” in our emblematic Colón Park”.
He said that the interest is that they enjoy it with their families, promoting, in addition, art and culture, to promote the welfare of the people.
The 6.56-foot sculpture, inspired by the masterpiece of Spanish painter Diego Velázquez, was designed by Dominican artist Isabella Fernández.
