QGEP sponsors art exhibition in northern Rio de Janeiro state

Queiroz Galvão Exploração e Produção, in partnership with the Portinari Project, resumed the itinerant Exhibition Portinari: Arte e Meio Ambiente (Portinari: Art and Environment). This time, the set of works of the Brazilian painter that addresses the environment topic will be displayed until May 17 in the city of Bom Jesus de Itabapoana, northern Rio de Janeiro state.

The presentation was inaugurated on Friday, May 10, in a listed building located downtown, with the participation of students from municipal schools. At the Governador Portela Square, in front of the area, art workshops are being offered by voluntary monitors.

The project involves much more than an exhibition, since the Bom Jesus residents are trained to monitor children’s activities. Moreover, teachers from municipal schools are trained to use art as an educational tool, always focusing on topics related to the environment.

According to Mirley Areias, representative of the Municipal Education Secretariat teaching team, Queiroz Galvão’s initiative comes in a good time. "The exhibition and training of teachers are aligned with the topic of the first half of 2013 and help us address environment concepts with students aged between 6 and 14 from 33 municipal schools."

QGEP has sponsored the Portinari Project since 2011, when the Exhibition was displayed in south Bahia. In 2012, it was inaugurated in Rio+20 and remained in Rio de Janeiro until December. This year, the project will be featured in other cities, including Maricá, Recife, São Francisco de Itabapoana and Arraial do Cabo.

Brazilian landscape, flora and fauna, crops and the Brazilian man were selected to compose the Exhibition, which, in addition to showing the artist’s works, are aimed at captivating and involving visitors, causing commotion and mobilizing them through art.
