A full moon illuminates the poster of the 11th edition of the Night of the Museums (15/03/2019)

The Night of the Museums of Cartagena has a new poster for its eleventh edition, which is celebrated on May 18, coinciding with the International Museum Day.

According to the author of the poster, "there are three elements that make up the poster.

The first element and as protagonist is the city of Cartagena, represented by the sky line of the city, the second, a visual aspect, represented by an eye with a large electric discharge as an element that pretends to communicate the energy of this day, and the third and last, night as a vertebrate element, represented by a full moon ".
