QUINTA DE SAN PEDRO ALEJANDRINO - MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART BOLIVARIANO

BACKYARD

Born of an initiative by Colombian artist Armando Villegas with the approval of the regional authorities and the President Belisario Betancur then, Bolivarian Museum of Contemporary Art opens its doors on July 24, 1986 within the San Pedro Alexandrian , with the intention of realizing through art, the dream of integration of the Bolivarian countries (Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Panama and Venezuela) as a tribute to the Nations Liberator, Simon Bolivar.

With a sample of over 200 works, Museum since its founding has been consolidating a collection of contemporary art rather heterogeneous, which partially sets the cultural map of Latin America since the first half of the twentieth century to today. The permanent collection includes works by prominent artists of the Bolivarian countries and other countries in Latin America with an important collection of painting, sculpture, printmaking, drawing, assemblage, watercolor, collage, installation, photography and video art.

In parallel to the permanent collection rooms recreated in Alejandro Obregón, Enrique Grau Armando Villegas, Bolivarian Museum has booked their rooms Hernando del Villar and Open Space Gallery to spread the production of current artists of the region, the country and Latin America.

In its international events calendar highlights Watercolor Triennial, an event that has been making the Bolivarian Museum for some years and has had the participation of works from all over the world.

In recent years, taking advantage of the environmental and cultural vocation Fifth St. Peter of Alexandria and Botanical Gardens, the Museum has begun to push the project staging Situ of environmental issues within their exhibition schedule.

Just as has been promoting the strengthening of the culture of the region, conducting cultural events such as poetry readings, dance and theatrical performances in the Theater Joaquin de Mier y Benitez, also located in the grounds of the Quinta.

Following further the pedagogical task training and public, the museum has its Department of Education, where he designed and developed activities like visits (tours and specialized), workshops, seminars and courses for children, youth and the general public .

This is an overview of South America

South America makes up the southern half of the Americas and a large part of Latin America. It's home to the world's longest mountain range, biggest waterfall and largest river -- even these mammoths pale in comparison to the stunning variety of life forms thriving in the rainforest.

To the northwest, off the coast of Ecuador, lie the Galapagos Islands, which are unique for hosting species not found anywhere else on earth. These were the subject of study for Charles Darwin in his theory of evolution, which he himself said will require proof in every single case.

The main languages in South America are Spanish and Portugese, which basically tells you which European countries colonized the place. The South American wars of independence took place over two decades in the early 19th century, led by Simon Bolivar of Venezuela and Jose san Martin of Argentina.

Following liberation from Portugal and Spain, South America took off into its own development, capitalizing on the rich deposits of oil, gold, copper, silver and tango musicians.

Brazil is the largest country in South America and home to one of the world's best parties, Carnaval. Have you heard of samba music? How about bossa nova? Maybe dancing for three days straight?

I can't say enough good things about South America. All the world's continents have amazing secrets and treasures laying in wait for your discovery, but in South America... just have a look at our pictures while you're waiting for online confirmation of your plane tickets to hit your inbox.
