Dr. José M Saldaña, a dentist by training and painter by calling, is perhaps better known for his illustrious academic career, during which he has occupied the post of president of the University of Puerto Rico, among others.
Unknown to some, Saldaña
has throughout his
life had the art bug, and is using his
talents to contribute to the newly established Pop Art District in Galería Paseos.
The maestro said he
has proposed to the shopping center's management the use of this initiative to replace the former "Martes de galería" monthly events held in Old San Juan.
says these Tuesday happenings, although popular, gradually became an excuse for youngsters to drink when local beer companies started sending truckloads full of beer to cash in on an admittedly high turnout.
