From January 21st to March 6th, The Gabarron Foundation presents the exhibition "I have a dream", in association with the Sitges City hall, to pay homage to Martin Luther King in the 80th anniversary of his birth. More than 70 artists from every continent participate in this group exhibition, where the common denominator is “the dream”. More than 45 years ago, Dr. King had a dream. This exhibition shows the artists’ visualization of that dream. The exhibition consists of numerous writers, thinkers and scientists that had presented their “dream”. Mr. Thedore W. Kheel, Chairman of the Gabarron Foundation, supported Dr. King during his life as he resolutely collaborated in “the dream” as it is shown in the current catalogue of the exhibition. Among the artists is Josep Puigmarti who is represented by Hotel del Arte in Barcelona. Hotel del Arte promotes their artists with a Gallery Portfolio at absolutearts.com .
