Between 28 June and 15 July, Valencia’s Palau de le Música will once again host the by Valencian fans most anticipated Jazz event of the year, the Seagram’s Gin Festival. This year, the festival has increased the number of concerts (elven in total), while reducing the ticket prices (which are between 10 and 24 euros), in order to attract even more citizens.
Javea, Alicante, home town of the painter Juan Bautista Segarra (1916-1994), will be the final destination for one of his least known works, a mural of big dimensions (11 metres in width), which has served over a period of more than seventy years (painted in 1952), as a decorative element of the López-Criado men’s wear shop, one of the best shops of the sector in the city of Valencia.
From 23 to 25 May, the Festival del Mar (Sea festival) will take place for the third time at the port of Javea, Alicante. It is organised by the Asociación de Comerciantes y Empresarios de Aduanas del Mar (ACEAM) (Teulada-Moraira Association of Businessmen and Traders), in collaboration with the Yacht Club of Javea and the town council of this city on the Costa Blanca.
Until 30 May, the Colegio Territorial de Arquitectos de Valencia (CTAV – Professional association of architects of Valencia) will show a collection of architectural drawings by famous Valencian architect Javier Goerlich in its exhibition hall. The exhibition focuses on Goerlich’s residential architecture between 1924 and 1942.
The museum of the City of New York will show a complete retrospective of the Valencian architect Rafael Guastavino’s legacy, under the framework of the exhibition ‘Palaces for the People’. Guastavino, although born in Valencia in 1842, developed his studios in Barcelona. In 1881 he emigrated to the US, accompanied by his son (also called Rafael, who over the years, also came to work hand in hand with his father), in the search for opportunities in the architectural sector, as he could find any in Spain, although he had already realized important projects like the La Massa Theatre in Vilassar de Dalt.
