NEW GRAFFITI AT THE VALLHONRAT MUSEUM
The entrance of the Vallhonrat de Rubí Museum Foundation, in May 2023, has renewed its image offering visitors a mural painted by the students of the 1st year of the Artistic Baccalaureate of l'INS La Serreta and leaving part of the old mural on the interior façade Created by EDRA in 2012.
The new mural reflects the evolution of human communication through time, which flows like the water of a river through seven fundamental historical stages: Prehistory with the typical cave paintings, Babylon with cuneiform writing, Egypt with its hieroglyphs, Greece with myths and oral culture, the end of the Middle Ages with Gutenberg and the printing press, the 9th and 20th centuries, with the digital age where communication through social networks is immediate and crosses borders.
This graffiti will be incorporated into the Ruta d'Street Art, organized by the Projection Service of the City of Rubí Town Hall.
The museum turned into a diorama
From December 18, 2022 to January 15, 2023, a nativity scene dedicated to the museum for the 60th anniversary and in memory of Pedro Vallhonrat can be seen in the Rubí Cultural Hall. It is a work created by Josep Comelles, a member of the Rubí Nativity Scene Association. It presents the characteristic façade, the laundry room and the water tower, which are the elements that house the diorama dedicated to Adoration, one of the oldest scenes in the artistic world and one of the most elaborated by the nativity scene artisans since it includes the main characters of these parties Hours: Monday to Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Sundays and holidays from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Place: Rubí cultural classroom (in front of the station).
During the Christmas holidays, the Vallhonrat Museum Foundation makes available to the children of Rubí, a very special real mailbox, created by the artist Elena Boixader.
The water tower, symbol of the museum, dressed as a royal page, is the protagonist of receiving the letters that want to be delivered to Their Majesties the Three Kings of the East.
It will be located at the entrance of Fincas Vallhonrat (Passeig Fransesc Macià, 80) from December 19, 2022 to January 4, 2023 from 10am to 1pm and from 4pm to 8pm.
