Olula del Rio art museum celebrates 10 years


THE Casa Ibañez art museum in Olula del Rio will celebrate its 10th anniversary on Wednesday July 1.
Prior to the birthday, cultural associations Argariia, Destellos-Aftefacto and LaLegua organised a gathering to thank the museum for its 10 years of activities.
It was particularly rewarding that the public, for whom both the museum and the Ibañez Cosentino Art Foundation concentrated their efforts, should be the first to congratulate them on such an important anniversary, said the centre’s director Juan Manuel Martin Robles.
The Museo Casa Ibañez was created by the artist Andres Garcia Ibañez who was born in Olula del Rio in 1971, to contribute towards promoting culture within the Alta Almanzora area and Almeria Province. It is part of Garcia Ibañez’s own home and houses one of Andalucia’s most important collections of contemporary art.
Speaking on behalf of the three associations that organised the event, Javier Irigaray expressed his gratitude for a museum that is more than an exhibition hall for an art collection.
He thanked Garcia Ibañez in the name of all those present for such a “generous and beautiful initiative.”
