Museum of Latin American Art

Lonely Planet review

This gem of a museum presents a rare survey of Latin American art created since 1945. Cecilia Míguez’ whimsical bronze statuettes, Eduardo Kingman’s wrenching portraits of indigenous people and Arnaldo Roche Rabel’s intensely spiritual abstracts are among the many outstanding pieces in the permanent collection, selections of which rotate every six months. There are a few works by Botero, Tamayo and Cuevas, but the focus is really on artists who are megastars in their home countries but haven’t yet hit the big time internationally. Some of the best pieces are in the sculpture garden.
