The New Menires of Vila do Bispo is the name of the exhibition that will be displayed at the Cultural Center from September 30 to November 8. The show brings together a set of 51 pieces inspired by the prehistoric Neolithic menhirs, performed by the children in the classes of Curriculum Enrichment Activity – Local Heritage Knowledge of Vila do Bispo – school year 2018/2019, under the project “Faz your own menhir ”.
This exhibition is the culmination of three weeks' work, where children were encouraged to produce new menhir-inspired sculptures, painted with new
decorative motifs, with the artistic support of sculptor Tineke Smit. The artistic works elaborated with the paper mache technique were done in groups, as
in prehistory, collective works produced by the community. For this purpose, materials such as plastic bottles and carboys and much, much newsprint were reused, sensitizing children to the good civic and environmental practices of recycling.
At the end of this initiative the works will then be offered by the children to various local institutions, in the person of their representatives, namely to all schools and classrooms of the county, Homes and Day Centers.
