“No Visitor Should Miss It!”
Reviewed January 5, 2009

Stretching across the northern edge of Downtown Bogota, Parque de la Independencia is a vast green carpet connecting two of the cities greatest works of architecture. Up the grassy hill we find the Towers of the Park (a fine apartment complex) and swept down the park’s green carpet, at the other end, is Bogota’s Museum of Modern Art (MAMBO for short)
Founded by the great Argentinean art critic (and fervent booster of Colombian modern art) Marta Traba, MAMBO should be on the destination list for any visitor to Bogota. The building (as well as the Towers) was designed by the superb Colombian architect Rogelio Salmona, and it shows just how stunning simple brick and concrete can be in the hands of an expert. The art itself ranges in quality from interesting (always) to breathtaking (often). There are no permanent exhibits, so come again and again. Don’t miss the enchanting little museum shop, crammed with art books of all sorts (and reasonably-priced posters), and the little cafe is the city’s best place of a cup of Joe. Bravo Marta! Bravo Bogota!
