Making the Pilgrimage to Culiacán
By Maria Bonta de la Pezuela
This was my first visit to Culiacán, a city in the northwestern state of Sinaloa, Mexico. For some reason I had expected it to be a desert climate and was thrilled to feel the warm humid air on my face as we walked out of the airport.
Lulu Creel, Head of Sotheby’s Mexico, and I were taken on an evening tour of the
de Arte de Sinaloa by its dynamic director, Alberto Gonzalez Torres, who
aims to transform the museum into a leading institution in Mexico, modeled after
other world-class international museums.
Maria de la Pezuela oversees Sotheby’s regional business in North and South America, including a network of ten representative offices.
