Along side Cecilia Duque, author of the book “Maestros del Arte Popular” (Masters of popular art), insatiable investigator of Colombia’s craftsmanship, and manager of “Artesanias de Colombia” for more than 30 years, Francesca Miranda hosted an event in her flagship store in Barranquilla, to encourage and promote sales of Colombia’s popular art done by artisans around the country. Art pieces were brought from all corners of Colombia, the same pieces that appear in Duque’s book where she offers a detailed explanation of the piece and the story of the artisan behind it. The store had a museum gallery feel to it, and made it’s attendees gain a new perspective on how they could incorporate Colombian art into their homes.
