The president also wanted to invite people from Huelva and visitors who spend these days in our province “not to miss this magnificent Open Air Museum. I am sure that thousands of people will once again fill the streets of Ayamonte to enjoy one of the main attractions of the summer and one of the most beautiful municipalities in the province of Huelva”.
Natalia Santos, for her part, pointed out that ‘A Walk through Art’ is “a purely Ayamont activity, and she thanked the members of ‘La Escalera’ for their work and involvement in organizing the event. “This is an event that returns with strength after the forced parenthesis of the pandemic and that ultimately means a return to that long-awaited normality with an initiative that has emerged as one of the main attractions of the summer in our province and that will once again turn Ayamonte into a true open-air museum in which all the participating artists, amateurs, novices or professionals, will have the opportunity to show their work in identical conditions”, he stated.
