Art is cultivated through a variety of platforms—from art schools and workshops to traditional and pop-up galleries and expositions. Many of our resorts, restaurants, and other businesses will introduce you to some of our local artists through art displays in public spaces.
Shop for locally made arts and crafts certified by the national seal of craftsmanship, Seyo Nacional pa Artesania, established by the government of Aruba through the Department of Culture. Many of these products can be purchased at Cosecha, located in a 100-year old historic building in the heart of downtown Oranjestad, next to the historic Protestant Church. An expanded version of this concept is located on the Main Street of downtown San Nicolas. The Cosecha Store & Creative Center, like the original Cosecha, offers local artists and craftspeople a platform to exhibit and sell their work to the public. The Creative Center adds another dimension to the endeavor, with workshops featuring hands-on experiences in a variety of art disciplines presented by local artisans.
Cosecha Store & Creative Center is the newest addition to San Nicolas’ growing list of galleries and museums.
