圓山大飯店多明尼加共和國藝文節 3月5日─3月12日 異國藝術畫作、珠寶飾品之美 還可品嚐道地美食

您吃過多明尼加的美食、看過多明尼加藝術家的精湛作品嗎?台灣的拉丁幫交─多明尼加共和國,位於加勒比海,給人的印象既遙遠又風光明媚,究竟這個神祕的島國有什麼特殊的異國風情呢?為了慶祝多明尼加共和國獨立紀念,並讓國人對多國有更加認識,台北圓山大飯店與多明尼加共和國駐華大使館在 2018 年 3 月 5 日至3 月12 日舉辦多明尼加共和國藝文節。民眾可藉由參與此次活動,欣賞多明尼加藝術、道地的美食、以及當地特色酒,更加貼近遙遠國家的風情。

藝術品展示 探索多國城鎮精神與文化

藝術品可以反映出城鎮的靈魂,以一種美麗且具體的方式體現其價值,更能夠體現國家靈魂之美。本次展出的作品,不僅希望國內民眾能夠認識多國藝術家,也希望藉由畫作與雕塑的展示,表現出多國的民族文化、內涵以及傳統價值。多明尼加共和國駐華大使館盼望本展能受到台灣人民的喜愛。此次來台展出的當地知名畫家包括Alberto Houellemont、Ariel Soto、Carlos Hidalgo、José Cestero、Henry Santana、Julio Susana、Luis Oviedo、Melanio Guzmán、Miguel Gómez、Miguel Nuñez、Ramón Sandoval、Rafael Trinidad等共20幅畫作以及14件雕塑作品。藉由多國的知名畫家們以純熟精湛且獨特的手法展現,期望讓更多台灣人可以貼近多國文化,歡迎民眾前往V樓兩側迴廊觀賞。

多明尼加特有寶石展出

此次藝文週不僅展覽藝術畫作,也帶來多明尼加獨一無二的藍色寶石「水淞石」(Larimar),又稱做藍珀。藍珀是一種罕見的針鈉鈣石(pectolite) 或半寶石(semi-precious),產地只有多明尼加共和國。 它的顏色從白色、淡藍色、藍綠色到深藍色,變化多樣,色彩鮮明透亮。Larimar其實是一種由鈣與鈉的組合物。由於成分含有鈷,藍珀呈現的藍色與其他岩石不同,因此儘管許多地方也有組成成分相似的寶石,卻都沒有藍珀般美麗的藍色色澤。多明尼加是世界上唯一天空藍珀產地,因出產世上最珍貴的琥珀–藍珀而被喻為「西方之珠」,且存在的年代有至少4000萬年。藍珀是有機寶石世界裡唯一有螢光反應的寶石,為琥珀中的極品,因在陽光下或是在紫外線下能呈現出藍色的螢光反應而被稱之為藍珀。近幾年來,藍珀的產量大幅減少且面臨絕跡的可能,因而導致藍珀市場的市場價格不斷飆升,使其大受世界各國收藏家和珠寶商們的喜愛。在珠寶行業裡,多明尼加寶石作為一匹黑馬強勢進入國際市場,它以獨有的藍色幻彩、稀少的數量和自身的不可再生性得到廣大投資者和消費者的喜愛。歡迎到圓山大飯店1樓文創館東側欣賞藍珀的風采,另外也有展出當地生產之琥珀等稀有寶石。

多國名廚親自料理  異國美食現場體驗

欣賞寶石畫作之餘,此次藝文週也規劃民眾體驗道地的多明尼加料理以及釀酒。由多國美食名廚設計的豐富菜單,開胃菜有由紅綠芭蕉混合而成的香蕉泥加炸豬皮與臘腸、樹薯餡餅及雞肉可樂餅三種選擇。主菜共有七道供您選擇,分別為雞肉燉飯、烤豬肉、烤樹薯泥、燉羊肉、椰汁魚、番茄肉漿丸與牛肚佐番茄醬。加勒比海風味的湯品也是值得一嚐的料理。最後還有主廚特製的特蕾斯蛋糕、蜂蜜香蕉、米布丁等多樣藝國甜點!歡迎前往圓山牛排館品嘗多國廚師特製的美食及蘭姆酒。
