  • Museum of fine arts "Prof. JORGE a.. MENDOZA" Avda Urquiza 410 - Monday to Friday from 9 to 13 and 14 to 20 hs space that tries to show the history and development of the Visual Arts in the province. It is part of the Centro Cultural Gral. Belgrano which runs on the old FC Belgrano train station. It was opened in 1987 and has three permanent exhibition halls where the collection of the 20 works in tempera, of the "painters children of Chucalezna" is the most valuable of the Museum. Prof. Mendoza was Professor of fine arts and took knowledge of the skills of some children of this people of the Quebrada de Humahuaca, thus as the interest manifested by these artistic expressions, so he decided to develop a workshop for help refine their techniques, providing also the materials necessary to make their tasks. Children worked in the workshop Fridays after school hours and on Saturdays but should also help in household tasks due to his humble condition. A few years after the death of Prof. Mendoza, what happened in 1973, the workshop closed its doors and the paintings were donated by the family on the occasion of the inauguration of the Museum. The Museum has grown over time with works and sketches of Prof. Escultor Nicasio Fernández Mar and 10 works provided by the family of the artist Laureano Rodríguez Pérez.
