Our Artists - H. Mourato and Henrique Tigo in the United States
 


Article published by Varzeense Newspaper, in 15/07/2003.

The plastic artists H. Mourato and Henrique Tigo, with their roots in Vila Nova do Ceira, are going to exhibit their own works in Graceland, the house of the legendary Elvis Presley, King of Rock'n'Roll, during the Elvis 19th Annual Art Contest and Exhibit Week 2003, as invited artists to represent Portugal. In the previous year, Henrique Tigo and his father, H.Mourato, had already been invited to participate in the same exhibition and this year the invitation was renewed and, according to them, "It is with great pride that we accept this honourable invitation," so they can exhibit, once again, their works in Graceland, house-museum of Elvis Presley, visited by more than 700 million fans per year.

The exhibition will be running from August 8 until August 13, 2003.

Note by Elvis 100%: This article has a mistake. It is not 700 milion fans who visit Graceland per year, but more or less an average of 800,000 people who do visit this house/museum.
