The Modern Art Museum Jesús Soto
In Ciudad Bolivar between the historic and the new city is the Jesus Soto Modern Art Museum. It is the concretion of Soto's dream to promote and increase the interest for art in his homeland. Thus, his native city was chosen to host a museum of which New York or Paris would be highly proud of.
The museum architectural design is the work of another famous Venezuelan artist the architect Carlos Raul Villanueva. In this piece of work Villanueva widely shows his rare ability to masterly integrate in a well-composed unity, architectural design, art, landscape and man.
The museum exhibits important art works Soto collected along his stay in Europe during the 50's and 60's. Here you can admire different artistic trends like structuralism, neoplasticism, optic, kinetic and monochromatic.
