Founded in 1948, Museu de Arte Moderna (MAM) was South America's first modern art museum. It is located within Parque do Ibirapuera in a building designed by Lina Bo Bardi. Outside the museum is an enchanting sculpture garden with intriguing modern sculptures by various accomplished artists. When I visited São Paulo in early Jan 2009, MAM was unfortunately closed for the holidays. Luckily, access to the sculpture garden was permitted, so it had to suffice.
