Museo de Arte
Puerto Rico's showcase art gallery opened just a few years ago
at a cost of millions of dollars. The gallery is housed in a former
city hospital in Santurce and offers a permanent and visiting
exhibition. The aim is to highlight the island's heritage through
the work of local artists, such as Francisco Oller, who studied in
France with CÃ©zanne, and Jose Campeche, a late-18th century
Classical painter. The museum has been described as a 'living
textbook of Puerto Rico', providing on overview of centuries of the
island's history through the medium of art.
