The Los Cabos Art Scene: The Shoppes at Palmilla
What´s not to love about this view? We love Cabo because everything seems brighter, the colors are more vibrant, the contrast of white sand and turquoise water reveals breathtaking landscapes everywhere. Among such beauty we easily find ourselves with boosted creativity, imagination and inspiration.
For it´s magnificent setup, The Shoppes at Palmilla is perfect for visitors who appreciate art and cultural events. The Shoppes at Palmilla have become over the years the “go to” place for refined and exclusive events, providing moments to remember and an escape from everyday life.
“C” as in culture, but also as in chic and charity!
The Shoppes at Palmilla are always at the top of what´s new and different, with “by invitation only” events for those who are looking for a VIP preview of new art collections. Events are often paired with magnificent charitable causes, such as the piano concert benefiting the Sierra Tarahumara natives.
Even when events have a charitable purpose, all of them have the same goal: to become a place to appreciate art and culture, always looking to add something new to the Cabo cultural scene. The “Beyond Words” unique art exhibition with Jonathan Brilliant, sculptor, is a great example. We were fortunate to be a stop on his world-tour in 2010. Jonathan´s objective is to provide a space where children can interact with the creative process in the construction of magnificent sculptures. This activity boosts the children`s imagination. This special event that has never been seen in our community and was displayed in places such as, Germany, England and selected places in the United States, like Washington, Florida and New York.
These kind of events focus on the love for art and culture, having a direct impact on our youth as they were in direct contact with the artist.
