Art takes over garbage in Casco Viejo

Casco Antiguo, Panama Last Sunday, a group of eighteen artists joined from an art organization called SEMBRARTE hands with AVACA, Casco Viejo`s Friends and Neighborhood Association to create beautiful garbage cans that will be donated by this non profit to the neighborhood.

Casco Viejo Panama The name of Bruce Quinn in Panama is synonym of “theatre” and “musicals”. Since I can recall, Bruce has been an unstoppable dynamo, year after year bringing us beautiful productions, anything from Chicago to Annie and even plays by local writers and singers. A “Zonian”  Bruce was born into Panama`s Canal Zone in the 40`s,  which back in the day meant you had double nationality: Panamanian and American.
