The Museum of Art Miguel Urrutia, previously called Banco de la República Art Collection, is a building with two large rooms, each of 500 square meters, to house temporary exhibitions of international stature. The complex also includes the Gregorio Vásquez de Arce square, an area for children's workshops, and an auditorium with capacity for 160 people. The three-story construction, inaugurated in 2004, was designed by the Bogota architect Enrique Triana Uribe who, for this project, received the 2006 National Architecture Prize.
Visit: Museo de Arte del Banco de la Republica, BogotaThe Banco de la República Art Collection is one of the richest plastic arts museums in Latin America. The collection is part of the cultural complex of the Luis Ángel Arango Library in the historic center of Bogotá (Colombia), which, in turn, belongs to the Banco de la República, the country's central bank. Although the collection began in 1957 with the donation made by the V Meeting of Central Banks of the American Continent, which included a "Mandolina" (1957) by Fernando Botero and works by Eduardo Ramírez Villamizar, among others, the collection was only opened to the public in 1996. In 2007 it has about 4500 works, of which 450 are usually exhibited.Visit: Gold Museum (Museo del Oro), BogotaYou'll also have the opportunity to visit this Museum if you wish.Visit: Museo Botero del Banco de la Republica, BogotaThe Museo Botero is very closed to Museo de Arte which can also be visited on your own.
