Museum of Contemporary Art
The Museu de Arte Contemporanea (MAC) was founded in 1963 as a division of São Paulo's Museum of Modern Art. The objective behind the creation of the museum was to offer a more diversified collection of Brazilian contemporary art. The museum is located on the University of São Paulo's main campus, and boasts pieces by famous artists such as Tarsila do Amaral, Umberto Boccioni, Joan Miró, and Pablo Picasso. Many of these paintings were donated from the private collection of Francisco Matarazzo Sobrinho, the founder of the São Paulo Museum of Modern Art. Thanks to additional donations from private collectors and other establishments, the museum currently holds over 8,000 paintings, sculptures and tapestries. MAC’s numerous, diversified displays make it an ideal attraction for anyone with even the slightest interest in art. The museum is easily accessible by bus, as it is close to the Clinicas Metro Station. The establishment is located at Rua da Reitoria 160, University of Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo, Brazil.
