“Prado on the Plaza brings Prado to the people,” said Mayor Tim Keller. “This outdoor exhibition will give visitors the chance to see fine art in a casual setting with Albuquerque’s cityscape as a backdrop.”
The Prado Exhibit on the Plaza presents 92 full-scale mounted reproductions of some of the greatest masterpieces from the Museum del Prado in Madrid, Spain, considered one of the greatest and certainly most visited art museums in the world.
The Prado Museum boasts one of the world’s finest collections of European art of the 14th – 19th centuries. This exhibit features artists such as Diego Velázquez, Hieronymus Bosch, Francisco de Zurbarán, Titian, José de Ribera, Peter Paul Rubens, El Greco and Francisco de Goya, displayed under the shade of Civic Plaza’s colorful west pergolas.
This outdoor public art display is the first of its kind in the USA and has previously exhibited in major Central American cities including, San Salvador, El Salvador, Guatemala City, Guatemala, Lima, Perú and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
This is an unprecedented cultural event for Albuquerque and Civic Plaza. Don’t miss your chance to appreciate these amazing works right in the heart of our city. The Prado on the Plaza Exhibit runs through August 31, 2018.
