Casa del Arte - Pinacoteca, Concepcion
(4.7/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Casa del Arte - Pinacoteca hosts the largest collection of works by Chilean artists from the colonial period to the 19th and 20th centuries, including a monumental mural. Mexican artist Jorge González Camarena painted the 250 sq m (2,690 sq ft) "Presencia de América Latina" from 1964 to 1965, reflecting the cultural, social, and union values of the Latin American countries. Other collections include masters of Chilean painting, portraits, self-portraits, landscape paintings, embroidery, photography, and a number of works by foreign artists. When you visit, notice that the museum building itself represents a mixture of neoclassical and Art Nouveau styles--due to partial reconstruction following a 1960 earthquake.

  • The Pinacoteca is by far one of my favorite places in conception. When you enter, the first thing observed is the large mural which is located on the inside, is precious, with an infinity of details, one can be watching and analizandolo for long time without entreternerse stop and marvel at its beauty and immensity. On the same floor which is the mural, there is a corridor which leads to a quite nice exhibition with works of tired Chilean painters of names that sound and are known in this world. There is a lower floor which is next to the room where is that exposure which has some very interesting works that are related to the earthquake and subsequent tsunami on February 27, 2010. Returning to the floor of the mural, there is a staircase that leads to a Hall with many paintings and precious works. Undoubtedly it is an inevitable conception. Ah! And there is a small gift shop at the same level of the mural where they sell souvenirs and memorabilia for anyone passing through there.
