MARCO, Monterrey: 4 reviews and 4 photos

  Armando Morales
by DriftingDavila

I was told by many people that this Museum was a must see activity. A couple months ago this museum had a Frida Kahlo exhibit and I was hoping that it would still be there or that there would be another exhibit by an artist of the same caliber. The Frida exhibit was long gone but we stumbled upon the artwork of a great Nicaraguan artist Armando Morales. The majority of this artists works show detailed scenes of the rainforest with small details showing nudes of people. I was amazed at the size of these paintings (some were as large sas 5 ft by 5ft). A truly amazing exhibit.

There was also a lot of other abstract artwork, but nothing else held a candle to this guy.
