The Tamayo Museum of Contemporary Art

The Tamayo Museum is located at one end of the Chapultepec forest, just across from the Museum of modern art. It is set in a part and surrounded by contemporary sculptures.
The building, designed by Theodoro Gonzales and Leon and Abraham in 1981 is in what I call "contemporary Aztec", low massive rough stone.

Evidently the museum itself is being expanded so many galleries were closed. Only an exhibit of contemporary work was on display.  Tamayo's own collection of his fellow artists will open later.
 
Artists represented include:
Dubuffet
Alexander Leiberman
Juan Miro
Mario Marino
Xavery Wolsky
Barbara Hepworth
Marca Relli

In its present state the museum is worth only a short visit.

William Haseltine is a former professor at Harvard Medical School, where he researched cancer and HIV/AIDS. He is the founder of Human Genome Sciences, where he served as chairman and CEO, and the president of the William A Haseltine Foundation for Medical Sciences and the Arts. He lives in Washington, D.C.
