SMArt at Pico Festival in the Azores

During the whole month of January 2016, MiratecArts presents the second edition of MONTANHA PICO FESTIVAL, the only event in Portugal of its kind. Mountain Pico Festival is not just a film festival and it is not just an art festival, it is also a celebration of everything that has to do with mountain culture and its issues, seen through the eyes of artists. SMArt participates to the festival with two exhibitions. Laurence Piaget “Agony of a Glacier” shows an exhibition at the Gare Marítima da Madalena, the entrance port to the island and the busiest place with daily boats arriving from neighbouring islands. Maralgua Badarch with her artwork “Mountain Myth” has her exhibition in the beautiful Pico Museum in the village of Lajes.
