DisclosureThe Rio Art Museum - MAR, under the management of the Odeon Institute, opens the exhibition To the love of the public I - Donations at ArtRio (2012-2015) and MinC/Funarte - Homage to Cely Mesquita. Curated by Paulo Herkenhoff, the exhibition is part of the celebrations for the museum's third anniversary and presents the public with a cross-section of the collection that has been assembled since before its inauguration on March 1, 2013, and today has more than five thousand pieces. The exhibition also pays tribute to Cely Mesquita, whose generosity contributed to the formation of the Cely, Ronie and Conrado Mesquita Fund.

Around 300 works that have been donated to MAR over the last few editions of ArtRio, the international art fair held in Rio de Janeiro, will be exhibited. The show, which will be on display for a month and a half, also includes recent donations made through Funarte's public notices, such as an expressive set of works by Vera Chaves Barcellos (RS), which makes MAR a reference center for her work. Moradia popular brasileira, a social series by Evandro Salles (RJ), and Natureza morta, fotografías que inquietam cartografias e identidades do Rio, by Louise Ganz and Ines Linke (MG).
To celebrate the opening of the exhibition, on March 8, at 11am, the curator and artists will take part in a Gallery Talk open to the public. The exhibition runs until April 24 and occupies the 1st floor of the Exhibition Pavilion.
