There is also a space for contemporary art in Oaxaca. The back patio at night was worth seeing with Moore exposition of lasser art.

The building is worth a visit, regardless of the exhibit. Have been to several visits over the years and have never been disappointed.

Although most people associate Oaxaca with folk art, the fine arts are also very strong here, as is evidenced by this small but dynamic collection of contemporary paintings and sculptures, housed in a beautifully restored building that is, itself, a work of art. Well worth your time.

As an artist, I love to see what other cultures value in their contemporary art. This visit told me Oaxacans value soul in their artwork and I couldn't agree more. A great experience and must see.

the courtyard is free and best of all - you may rent bicycles from here and tour other area museums - all part of a art installation piece. wish I went there earlier.
