MUSA’s objective, 1,346 pieces underwater
The museum’s objective is to sum a total of 1,346 statues and boost the attractiveness of the site since these work as an artifical coral reef that has been charming us for ages! The Museum has the goal of showing the world how art and science can help conserve the environment.
Every piece under water has been authorized by the Semarnat under every quality standard due to the fact that the sculptures material must provide an adecuate place for coral life to be born.
SEyC and CONACULTA have approved the sinking of Elier Amado Gil’s new sculptures, the resident artist in MUSA.
