Luján: Museo de Bellas Artes Fernán Félix de Amador [Fernán Félix de Amador Museum of Fine Arts]

This little warm hug of art, I swear.

Now, I am very, very behind, owing to a burst of paying work that I reluctantly gave priority to, so here’s a very brief introduction to a teeeeeny tiny museum.

Temporary installation piece: “Selfie Couple,” 2018. Hahahahahahahaha.

The Museo de Bellas Artes is located, along with most stuff anyone ever sees in Luján, on the long main square that ends in the basilica. It’s free, and you might spend half an hour there. I believe the art is primarily Argentine. I am especially fond of the motorcycle mantises, from the series “Motomantis,” by Marta Gonzalez.

The main hall:

And a couple more of my favorite paintings currently on display:

The museum also features sculptures, including a bit of outdoor sculpture space, although the real work on display here is my terrible, terrible photography:

Right outside the front door, a sculpture of a woman with a mate.

There’s even a tiny shop, although it was unmanned during our visit.

So if you’re in Luján, pop into the art museum and give your eyeballs an art snack. It’s free, open seven days a week, and located right by the basilica, several places to eat, other attractions, and many, many souvenir stands offering a bewildering array of basilica-branded merchandise.
