Day 8 - Road Trip - Guadalajara - the works of José Clemente Orozco

Visiting Guadalajara for a few days - so much to see and little time. One of the many places we visited today was the Hospicio Cabañas, a World Heritage Site.

In 1937, upon a request from the Government of the State, the artist José Clemente Orozco was invited to paint the inside of the main chapel. In 1980, by official decree, the Cabañas changed its name to Instituto Cultural Cabañas and was converted into a place dedicated to diffusion of the arts.

More to come in future blog posts on José Clemente Orozco’s work exhibited in the Instituto Cultural Cabañas and the many sights around Guadalajara.The Instituto Cultural Cabanas_IMG_0362.jpg

About

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
