Rufino Tamayo Museum
Rufino Tamayo was an important Mexican artist of the 20th century. According to the public page of the museum, he began to acquire works to create a collection of international contemporary art. Tamayo donated this to help the Mexican public get closer to the art of the 20th century and thus promote the creation of the Rufino Tamayo Museum which would house this collection and was founded in 1981. The artist's goal when founding a museum as stated on the page of the same, it is to enrich the aesthetic experience and the critical sense of the different spectators and public that visit it by means of the investigation and the interpretation of its programming. Mexico City is a very cultural city and although there would be many good museums to visit, the Rufino Tamayo is one of the most important.
