Diplomats from over 70 countries attended a ceremony last month, independence month, at The Plaza Republica de Panamá in Cordoba, Argentina to unveil art by Rolo De Sedas, a well known Panamanian artist.
De Sedas was invited by the Panamanian Embassy in Argentina to commemorate Panama’s independence month. The activity included Los Rabanes and Latin Fresh, two famous Panamanian bands.
De Sedas is known for his “mamis” which are cartoon-like representations of Panamanian women and their culture. In coordination with Patricia Olmos and her Guell Mosaics workshop, a group of neighbors used recycled materials to give a whole new look to the plaza with mosaic representations of his art.
Plaza República de Panamá received its name in 1983 as a way of thanking Panama for its support to Argentina during the Maldives War.
