October in Bogotá marks the “Month of Art,” a time in which the city celebrates art by hosting a variety of festivals, galleries and shows. The month begins with a few big art festivals, such as ARTBO, Barcú and La Feria del Millón, all of which feature a variety of art for the city’s residents to enjoy. Unfortunately, however, these big events were finished by the end of the first week of October, leaving art hopefuls wanting.
Fortunately, there’s still plenty on offer in the “Month of Art” – all of these galleries are worth a visit if you want to satisfy your artistic cravings.
