Museum of Art. Space 2
The “Museo de Arte de Almería Espacio 2”, property of the City Council of Almeria, is a post-modern building inaugurated in 1998, and was initially destined to exclusively host temporary exhibitions. Later it changed its function with the exhibition of a permanent collection distributed in the four rooms on the ground floor where one can appreciate the works of painters, sculptors, engravers and photographers with contrasting artistic careers but continuous presence on the expository and cultural scene of Almeria, from 1980 to the present day.
In the last years the Museum has experienced an increased variety of activities, having organised cultural events that are fundamentally pictorial, with exhibitions of classics such as Francisco de Goya, Joaquín Sorolla or Rafael de Penagos, and exhibiting in its galleries other arts such as engraving, photography, sculpture, posters or graphic humour or even organising official presentations and press conferences.
