The Casa de la Cultura
The Casa de la Cultura, founded in 1944, and located at the intersection of Avenida de la Patria and 6 de Diciembre, has long been the center of Quito’s artistic development. It is made up of three prominent buildings, the largest a massive circular edifice that features galleries, theaters of varying sizes, movie salons, and museums. Right next to it is a more conventional, neo-classical rectangular building, and then an additional theater next to that, which also showcases art. The more classical building features two large exhibition halls with an ongoing series of expos, mostly by local artists. Afterwards, just walk over to the circular building that is a modern art space on the second floor (ask the helpful guards, “¿arte moderno?” if you get lost). This will lead you to the next venue on our list.
