Global Glimpses: Oruro, Bolivia

Posted by anja | March 18, 2013 | Bolivia, Ex-blog


In February 2009, I spent three weeks in Bolivia on a guidebook assignment. In the unassuming Altiplano town of Oruro, I made a pitstop at Casa Arte Taller Cardozo Velasquez, private museum/studio of a local artist family.

Pictured above is Gonzalo, the head of the family, whose sculptures dot the courtyard. His wife María makes beautiful pottery while the five daughters – Nayra, Wara, Tani, Lulhy and Kurmi – create paintings, photographs, collages and drawings.
