Casa del Arte - Pinacoteca, Concepcion

4.7
#1 of 10 in Museums in Biobio Region
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 House of the culture of the great conception, there are permanent exhibitions on the second level, the place is very harmonious with the intention of the Pinacoteca. On the first floor there are exhibitions that are rotating. The central attraction, the main mural, which is located at the entrance.

  • The only interesting part of the site is the mural in the foyer. Lack and signaling information. Bold architecture but very unkempt.
