All the programming to enjoy Museum Day in Castilla-La Mancha

A total of 46 activities in the eleven museums managed by the Junta de Comunidades de Castilla-La Mancha are scheduled to commemorate International Museum Day this Wednesday, May 18. Among them, the music of a DJ stands out to liven up some of these spaces or a demonstration by a Talavera master potter that will be broadcast live.

The event takes place at the initiative of the International Council of Museums and this year the theme chosen was 'The power of museums'. The events will conclude on Sunday, May 22.

The vast majority of the proposals will be face-to-face and range from exhibitions, talks, conferences, workshops, puppet shows or dramatized visits to the live broadcast through the CLM Culture social networks of the work carried out by the potters from the Ruiz de Luna Museum in Talavera.

In addition, as a novelty, the presence of music stands out in some of the museum centers with various performances in the museums of Ciudad Real, Cuenca or Guadalajara, where you can enjoy the music of a DJ.

Thus, the Albacete museum will present the painting entitled 'Figure of a woman', the work of one of the most representative artists of the region, Benjamín Palencia, which has recently been acquired by the Ministry of Culture and Sports. In the same way, the new archaeological materials dating from the Bronze Age will be presented.

Music will be present at the Ciudad Real Museum and at its second venue, the Convento de la Merced, with a woodwind concert (flutes) by the students of the 'Marcos Redondo' Music Conservatory. There will also be dramatized visits, as well as a poetic-musical recital.

At the Provincial Museum of Guadalajara, on May 18, a unique piece of Andalusian ceramics will be presented: 'El ataifor de Guadalajara'. It is a capital piece for the study of the European medieval world and will be the protagonist of a temporary exhibition that will bear the same name and where other ceramics recently found in various excavations in the city of Guadalajara can be displayed.

For several days, the activity 'The power of the image' will also take place, an installation of panels with large-size images of works from the museum, and the activity 'The power of music' will take place, a DJ session for all audiences with the projection of images of the collections and rooms of this space in Guadalajara.
