Bellas Artes

 
November 15, 2018   Mexico, SMA
 
 

We checked out the Bellas Artes to see the beautiful building, study some art, snack on cheesecake and cappuccino, and attend a book signing/talk/slide show on West Africa. The Bellas Artes is housed in a former convent. It has a large central courtyard around which are exhibit spaces, an auditorium, and workshops for a wide range of arts, from music and dance to weaving and painting. Entrance to the building and exhibits is free, like most of the Mexican museums we've visited, which is great as it makes it accessible to everyone.

We ended our visit to Bellas Artes with a talk introducing the Houses' new book Villages of West Africa. Their beautiful photography was accompanied by stories of their travels through several African countries.
