The event presented a magnificent selection of glass artwork from Latin America, with a variety of styles and techniques. The exhibition was held in Cartago, in a museum converted from a colonial-era prison, providing a fascinating contrast between the past and the present. The Israeli Embassy in Costa Rica was one of the sponsors of the event, and Israeli Ambassador to Costa Rica, Oren Bar-El, was one of the distinguished guests at the opening of the exhibition.
