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 art of conception stands out for its tremendous collection of painting. There are always new exhibitions. The mural is a feature of the University of Concepción.

    It is the mural more beautiful but also the gallery gathers various exhibitions and is a must-see in the city.

    Honestly, the rest of the museum was probably a 3 or 4 star worthy event, but the mural in the main room is remarkable and truly worth a visit all by itself.  more »
