Looking For Photos of Cesar Manrique

A campaign has been launched to celebrate the centenary of César Manrique to collect images of the artist in his memory. These will be displayed on the website wich specialises in Lanzarote memorabilian www.memoriadelanzarote.com.

The website serves as a public digital documentation service for island memories and has more than 15,000 records which include images, documents, chronologies and statistics. Through a daily work of digitization, documentary emptying and metadata management, after analysis and treatment of historical documentation, www.memoriadelanzarote.com has been increasing its content on the documentary, historical, cultural and scientific heritage produced in or on the island, with the aim of contributing to its research and public knowledge.

Thanks to the support of organizations and people who collaborate in different ways giving private material so that everyone can access. A proportion of the collections have been transformed into temporary exhibitions that take place in La Casa Amarilla in Calle Real, Arrecife which was the former seat of Arrecife council, now converted into a museum of the memory of Lanzarote and open to visitors
