Guadalajara Prepares to Welcome New Museum

Officials in Guadalajara have officially announced plans for the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, which will be situated in the city of Guadalajara in Jalisco.

Slated for a September 2012 completion, over six acres of land will house the museum, which will collaborate with contemporary artists to create new works and will also look for participation from renowned artists who seek visible and lasting presence for some of their masterpieces.

These new collections and collaborations with artists focused on Mexican and Latin American art will contribute significantly to the cultural heritage of Mexico and reinforce Guadalajara’s image as a cultural destination.

The Museum, which will be planned at over one million square feet, will consist of three main exhibit sections: newly developed permanent collections of Mexican and Latin American art, designed especially for this new museum; special exhibitions developed by the healing and restoration staff and special exhibitions developed by other museums and brought to Guadalajara by the Government of the State of Jalisco.
