«After driving through the lush mountains of the Rodovia dos Imigrantes highway, we toured Brazil's largest city, São Paulo. Our first stop was the Pinacoteca art museum, a glorious building that combines old and new architecture and boasts a comprehensive survey of Brazilian art. During our visit, there was both a contemporary art installation in process as well as a choreographer preparing his dancers for an upcoming performance. The group then moved on to the Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP), which houses an important collection of European art and contemporary installations. An exhibition of Brazilian artist Regina Silveira's work was a welcome find—truly a highlight of São Paulo's many offerings.»
