Art+Culture Merida

Art in the Yucatan

Driving through Campeche on our last day on the road, we stumbled on an amazing display of sculpture by Javier Marin, Also toured the recent exhibition at MACAY, the main contemporary gallery in Merida, particularly loved the ceramics by Gustavo Perez. We are surrounded by creativity!

In October 2012, I drove 6,800 kms with my artist husband, Ric Kokotovich (, and my dog Iggy, to spend 6 months in our adopted city of Merida. Leaving the fast paced world of Calgary behind, I packed my books, art and entrepreneurial spirit, and set off to explore what lay beyond the borders that had become my life. In October 2013 we hit the road south again, hoping to find out what ‘living the dream’ really means. This is my adventure.
