Meninas Madrid Gallery, alongside the Rafa Nadal Foundation
Beginning on the 1st of October until the 30th of November, Madrid becomes once again the setting for “Meninas Madrid Gallery”, an initiative that pays tribute to Velázquez, captained by artist Antonio Azzato. A total of 54 fiberglass sculptures will be placed in the streets of the city, on which many personalities such as artists, chefs, athletes, actors, etc. will take part. Rafael Nadal will be one of these collaborators.
Once the exhibition concludes, most of the sculptures will be auctioned and the funds raised will be allocated to different activities supported by various entities and NGOs. The Rafa Nadal Foundation, chosen by the event organizers, will be the main beneficiary of the raisings from the auction.
This will be the 2nd edition of this initiative, which has been promoted by Madrid City Council —an urban exhibition where art merges with citizens and visitors.
