Cultural links.

A series of twelve lectures on the spiritual links between spain and the Americas opened on September 10 at the OAS Art Museum of the Americas. These seminars will explore both the relationship between Spain and the Arts in the Americas and the historical relationship and development of culture as a part of our heritage.

The program combines lectures by prominent scholars, art historians and critics, with relevant music and dramatic enactments, as well as art from the permanent collection of the OAS Art Museum. This multi-media format will provide participants an opportunity to investigate interrelationships between a variety of art forms. Each seminar/event will focus on one preeminent writer, philosopher, poet, dramatist, composer artist or film director and that person's artistic indebtedness to Spain.

The seminars, which will continue through December 3, take place on Thursday evenings at 6 p.m. and at the OAS Art Museum, located at 201 18th Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. some of the luminaries to be discussed include Cuban essayist, poet and political leader Jose Marti (October 1); Nicaraguan master of modernist literature, Ruben Dario (October 8); Spanish lyric poet Juan Ramon Jimenez (October 15); Chilean Nobel Laureate Pablo Neruda (October 22); North American Nobel Laureate Ernest Hemingway (November 5); Argentine composer Alberto Ginastera (November 12); Brazilian sculptor and architect Aleijadinho (November 19); and Spanish film director Luis Bunel.
