Greetings from Sao Paulo # 6: MAM

Museu de Arte Moderna in Ibirapuera Park in Sao Paulo is the oldest museum of modern art in the country. During our visit there was an exposition of the life and works from multi talented and genius Burle Marx.

Landscape architect, painter, gardener and botanist, designer... If you wish to know more about Burle Marx's life and works I have found an article of the New York Times that you can read clicking here.

MAM has also a nice restaurant with snacks and a lunch buffet with many Brazilian and international dishes. In Parque do Ibirapuera, where MAM is located, there are other several museums plus a planetarium, a lake, monuments and a Japanese pavillion.
