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.

Today we visited the Atchugarry Foundation in beautiful Punta del Este, Uruguay—an area often referred to as the "St. Tropez of South America." The group strolled the large, exquisite property and explored works by dozens of artists. Pablo Atchugarry, the artist who started the foundation, happened to be working in his studio during our visit, and he graciously chatted with us. Our journey then took us to Casapueblo, a cliffside villa and museum built by the late Uruguayan artist Carlos Páez Vilaró with magnificent views of the ocean.
