The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has started work to adapt the environment and the façade of the main office building of the APB in Eivissa, located at the access to the North docks
The month of March sees the completion of the exhibitions held to showcase the entries in the 3rd APB Painting and Photography Competition at the Ibiza Congress Center in Santa Eulària des Riu. On this occasion, the exhibition has travelled around the islands of Majorca, Minorca and Ibiza for the first time, given the large number of participants. The 240 works entered into the competition show the interest that this type of initiative organised by the APB has generated amongst the artistic community and amateur painters and photographers. The exhibition which runs from today until 21st March showcases the twelve award-winning paintings and photographs as well as around 40 other works entered into the competition on the island of Ibiza.
The Culture Councillor, Ana Costa, who attended the exhibition’s opening ceremony alongside the APB’s Head of Communication, Raimond Jaume, and the Regional Culture Minister, Josefa Costa, commented that the cooperation project had been promoted to mark the hundredth anniversary of the sinking of the Mallorca steam boat, and had taken into account the maritime theme of the competition organised by the APB. Costa also highlighted “the added value of the lighthouses that protect vessels from the dangers of the coast. Let us not forget that if the Llosa de Santa Eulària had been marked, the (Mallorca) accident would probably never have occurred”.
The APB exhibited all the works entered into the 3rd Painting and Photography Competition on the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands’ ports and lighthouses during the Christmas period at the Ses Voltes Cultural Centre in Palma. In turn, the works submitted in Minorca were shown in the month of February at the Caixa de Maó exhibition hall.
