Miches, Dominican Republic.- The “Costa Esmeralda Collection,” a series of oil paintings showcasing the beautiful landscapes surrounding the town of Miches will go on a world tour to benefit the Olivia Peguero Arte Libros Foundation.
The group of paintings will be displayed in Florida, London, Dubai and Bangalore, India. The display will kick-off in Boca Raton, Florida in December and will continue to London in early spring.
The artist Olivia Peguero was born in Las Salinas and grew up in Miches. Renowned as a “Plein air” landscape and botanical artist, she created this series to highlight the beauty of Miches and the Costa Esmeralda seashore that is rarely seen by tourists.
Additionally, she hopes to bring attention to the “Art Books for Education” program that helps promote the arts through reading and creative writing for young girls in rural Dominican schools.
