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 C?ęzanne, 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.
