    Modern Art Museum Showcasing Mexican Talent

    by Daniel_Williams Written Mar 28, 2005

    The excellent MARCO (35 peso entry) had an incredible exhibit of Maestros Mexicanos. There were two paintings I especially appreciated, one of birds that were trapped in ribbon (speaking of environmental destruction inhibiting their freedom I think) and one of a woman with many different poses (with a cut, with dandruff, sad, neutral, etc...), which spoke to me of the real vicissitudes of humanity.

    The MARCO-Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Monterrey

    by DriftingDavila Written Jul 26, 2004
    Armando Morales

    I was told by many people that this Museum was a must see activity. A couple months ago this museum had a Frida Kahlo exhibit and I was hoping that it would still be there or that there would be another exhibit by an artist of the same caliber. The Frida exhibit was long gone but we stumbled upon the artwork of a great Nicaraguan artist Armando Morales. The majority of this artists works show detailed scenes of the rainforest with small details showing nudes of people. I was amazed at the size of these paintings (some were as large sas 5 ft by 5ft). A truly amazing exhibit.

    There was also a lot of other abstract artwork, but nothing else held a candle to this guy.

    be sure to take your camera. For some reason every photo one takes in that building turns out looking like album cover art.
