Fundacion Eterno, J.G. Emanstraat 92, Oranjestad.
Fundacion Eterno is a foundation established in 1996. The foundation main purpose is to make Contemporary Art visible National and international and to be a bridge in been local, regional and international cultural ideas and concepts. One of the main projects of Fundacion Eterno was Eterno Studio Gallery, J.G. Emanstrtraat 92, Oranjestad Aruba. The first Contemporary conceptual Art gallery /alternative space in centrum of Oranjestad, Aruba. It was Founded and financed by Osaira Muyale and managed by Osaira Muyale and Renwick Heronimo and in collaboration with local contemporary artists, art curators and art lovers.
Eterno was conceived to promote contemporary art and artists on the island of Aruba and within the greater Dutch Antilles region. From the moment of its inception, ETERNO served as a significant link between the local and international artists. Eterno has filled a tremendous cultural gap between the island and Europe. It served as an alternative contemporary arts center for the artwork to be presented without censorship. Eterno supported and nourished artistic freedom, imagination and innovation.* Strategic Objectives In its 8-year history, Eterno had been an organization of ideas. In the dawn of a new century, Eterno is well known within the region and was continuously being recognized in the international art scene. Currently, the future advancement and cultural development of the island rests greatly on the shoulders of those artists living, teaching and working on the island. After all, a society is known and appreciated most by its progress in the arts and culture. The Galerie’s efforts to this end have enriched the lives of those artists in Aruba and touched the lives of many. The presence of an arts entity such as Eterno had endorsed Aruba’s commitment to the arts, cultural development and place Aruba within a distinct group of destinations. Eterno has proven its value, validity and authority on the contemporary arts in Aruba. For years it provided a space for statement. This; cannot be measured in a simply way, it can only be supported. After all, a society that supports its creators and innovators is a one that is destined to advance and succeed as a whole. As a result, the working artists of the island took the initiative in creating Eterno Contemporary Arts in 1993 to serve as a venue for exhibiting contemporary visual and performance arts by local and international artists. During the last 8 years, Eterno functioned as a pillar for the artists to lean on and an immense resource for art historians, art critics for research and for the general public to learn about the arts. In a sense, Eterno became an irreplaceable motif of the cultural mosaic of the island. At Eterno, the new ideas are nurtured. The artists that have exhibited at the space have shown their works in international biennials and in solo and group exhibitions. In the year 2000, Eterno held a symposium for 4 days during which two different curators and museum administrators were invited to hold lectures and workshops. During open discussions, the subject matter ranged from architecture and museum.
