- Legacy Fine Art
The tradition of the visual arts in Panama is extremely recent and at the same time the public has been less than receptive for more than sixty years, consequently making the pictorial activity merely secondary in the country’s existence. This was a decisive motive for Legacy Fine Art to open its doors in 1997, with the intention of promoting Latin American art in Panama as well as in the international level. Throughout the year, Legacy Fine Art organizes individual and group exhibitions with a broad representation of artists, such as: Guillermo Trujillo, Silfrido Ibarra, Alonso Carvajal, Jose Bedia, Daniel Bottero, Rubén Berland, Fenando Canovas, Enrique Campuzano, Ricardo Chacón, Ignacio Iturria, José Gamarra, Arturo Montoto, Guillermo Muñoz Vera, Fabián Marcaccio, Peter Von Artens, Miguel Padura, Félix Perdomo, Angel Ricardo Ríos, Antonio Seguí, Trino Sánchez, Jorge Tacla, Julio Valdez and Mark Valencia.
