In response to calls from artists, arts institutions and cultural managers, the Colombian Minister for Culture has announced that the National Art Show will re-open in 2003. To launch the project, the minister has allocated 500 million pesos. The minister is also looking towards investing in resources that will guarantee the show’s continued functioning in the long term.
