WYD brings Gaudi to Panama’s Biomuseo

The exhibition ’Gaudí, son of María’ will be brought from Spain to Panama for World Youth Day 2018. The gesture is in honor of the Marian faith of the famous modernist architect. A new exhibition on the expiatory temple of the Sagrada Familia, in Barcelona, ​​Spain, from architect Antonio Gaudí, will be part of the cultural offer that will be featured at  the World Youth Day (WYD) for the enjoyment of its pilgrims in Panama.

The exhibition «Gaudí, son of María», will be installed in the auditorium of the Biomuseo in the Amador Causeway, and will be composed of billboards, illustrative panels, models and audiovisuals, translated into English and Spanish.

The expiatory temple of Sagrada Familia was designed by Gaudí and began to be built under his supervision in 1882. The death of Gaudi, due to an accident with a tram and lack of budget, hindered the project’s completion. Its culmination is expected in 2026, to coincide with the centenary of Gaudí’s death. Although other critics project that the real date of completion will extend  beyond the year 2030.  It is  one of the most visited architectural works in the world, for its diverse influences in design, including Gothic and Art Nouveau.

The artistic-religious exhibition is part of one of the five great circuits prepared for WYD.

Gaudí’s exhibition uses a current language such as stories (storytelling), similar to the one used in the social network Instragram, to make it attractive to young people. «It’s as if Gaudí himself published his stories about how Maria guided him in his work,» says Curti.

How to access the exhibition? To enter the Biomuseo and see the exhibition from January 2018, you only have to be registered as a pilgrim at WYD. Extended hours for the occasion range from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

At the end of the exhibition each visitor can participate in a workshop to build a mosaic with a Marian symbol and take it as a reminder of their visit.

After the celebration of the WYD, the exhibition will remain free as a «gift for Panamanians», says Curti, until February 8 at the museum’s regular hours. Source:

Around the museum there will be a festive atmosphere of music and a collection center for food distribution, which will encourage the continuous movement of pilgrims and experience Panamanian biodiversity.

Panama is quickly becoming a popular destination for holding conventions and international events. A modern infrastructure, which is often cited as the best in the region, direct flights to more than 50 cities in the region and 13 in the U.S, world-class attractions nearby, meeting facilities, hotels, excellent restaurants, a globalized populace, and a vibrant metropolis with more than 100 banks and exciting nightlife, all make Panama the perfect place to host first-class events.

No matter what you’re looking for…in terms of climate, budget, convenience, or anything else… Panama is likely to check all the boxes.

Panama is located at the center of Latin America, at the very point where Central and South America meet. It is home to one of the world’s fastest growing economies, which is built largely on the country being a primary provider of financial, logistic and commercial services to all the nations of the region. Its central role in Latin America is vested in its being a business friendly nation, and that is complemented by its attractive and comfortable lifestyle.

Panama is a captivating mix of the historical and the modern, the natural and the manmade, the indigenous cultures and the international.

Since Panama is historically a crossroads, people and cultures from all over the world meet and mix here, resulting in friendly atmosphere, fantastic restaurants, galleries and cultural events showcasing the world’s best art, cuisine, and more. Panama has none of the disastrous hurricanes and earthquakes that plague its Central American neighbors.
