A splendid collection of Brazilian art in the heart of Sao Paulo. definitely one of the best spots in town. explore the street vendors and their art at the museum's "vão" and enjoy a beer across the street at the classic "Charme", the only bar in Paulista open until 6am every day.
On a main São Paulo avenue (Paulista), where you can find ao lot of artists exposing their works.
Always great expos, right in the middle of the city most famous street, Avenida Paulista.
Located in the heart of Avenida Paulista, Latin America's most bustling and lively avenue, this is probably one of the biggest architectural treasures of th world, built in the modernist tradition by Lina Bo Bardi. The collection has beautiful pieces of modern art, and some great impressionists.
The São Paulo Museum of Modern Art, more commonly known as MASP, is a fine art museum on Avenida Paulista. Its exhibition hall contains a collection of over 8,000 works of art ranging from Renaissance masters such as Raphael and Botticelli to more modern icons like Bonnard and Warhol, making MASP one of the preeminent museums in Latin America and the Southern Hemisphere. Aside from its art collections, a library, film gallery and two auditoriums are also part of the building and available for public use.
Opened in 1968, the building is one big eyesore on Avenida Paulista with a rather large concrete building supported by four ugly red columns, but the inside belies the unpleasantness of the outside. The Museum has some Goya's and Velazquez (my favorite painter of all time, he was a very lazy painter only completing 76 works that we know of) along with many paintings from the French Impressionists.
