bonart the vendrell - 05/02/23

Last December 1, the board of trustees of the Fundació Apel·les Fenosa del Vendrell ratified the proposal of the competition jury for the new direction of the Apel·les Fenosa Museum, and appointed Nekane Aramburu as a replacement for Josep Miquel Garcia. He has left the position due to his retirement, after twenty years at the head of this cultural facility in Vendrell.
The project of the new management focuses on the projection of the entity in its local framework, but also on its internationalization, just when the Portal del Pardo will soon shine in all its splendor.
