The collection of portraits of artists from donations of residents, family and friends of this entity will be on display until November 30th.
Casa do Artista (The House of the Artist) was founded in 1999 to support those who start an artistic career through training courses in the cultural, artistic and technical fields.
It also includes in its statutes the promotion of exhibitions, lectures and contests.
