“La Ruta de la Paz” Sculpture Park
June - November 2009

The La Ruta de la Paz project by sculptor Jiménez Deredia will finally be fully appreciated in a new sculpture  park and in a museum that is being created exclusively for this project in San Rafael of Alajuela, Costa Rica. The monumental sculptures that the artist created for the exhibition Deredia in Rome, exhibited in the Roman Forum, in the Colosseum and in the Palazzo delle Esposizioni have found a permanent arrangement in a park that already enchants for its poetry and for the artistic and architectural balance it exudes. The sculptures of the Ruta de la Paz dialogue with nature, with the native vegetation of Costa Rica, in a way that seems to communicate the symbolic values ​​of the American continent.
