The ‘Casal del Port’ is dressed up in graphic humour
In recent years, the PAV has recovered the role of cultural centre of the Clock Building to bring the ‘Casal del Port’ closer to the public, this time again with an exhibition on graphic humour. This is the third edition dedicated to renowned cartoonists, an initiative that is enriching our way of looking at the world and Valenciaport’s perspective on issues that are part of its daily life, such as the environment, social commitment or the transmission of culture and historical heritage.
In previous editions, the Port of Valencia’s facilities have featured two other humorous geniuses with the exhibitions of Ortifus and Forges, which received 10,500 and 12,000 visits, respectively.
