The Zapopan Art Museum, a place envisioned and built by María Emilia Orendáin and Enrique Toussaint, two of Jalisco’s most emblematic architects, can be found on the 20 de Noviembre Walkway, presiding over the peaceful Plaza Caudillos.
Better known as MAZ (by its acronym in Spanish), this space looks like a contemporary fabric but still features a most striking and appealing architecture. Its spacious white lobby with glass windows invites the tourists to continue their tour, while the phrases and colors appeal to even the most skeptical visitor.
Contemporary reflections on social behavior, on the ways we perceive the world, and on the possibilities of making improvements are only some of the things we can perceive through the artistic work displayed at the MAZ. To achieve this, it opens its doors to plastic and conceptual artists from all over the country and the world.
On Sundays they hold a special family day, featuring the projections of some of the films that marked the childhood of several generations. They also offer guided tours and workshops according to the present exhibition. It is a small paradise of avant-garde and art that coexists with Zapopan’s oldest traditions.
