Since its inception Open Art, Art for All’s mission is to forge an accessible opportunity to exhibit artistic work. Over thirteen years, the announcement is defined in line with Leopoldo Flores’ affirmation in 1976: “...We must express our doing, more in keeping with our time, a young art, a dynamic art, a revolutionary art, an OPEN ART...” In response to these words, at the Leopoldo Flores University Museum we take ownership of these goals, in order to recognize the artistic production of those who have strived to express social stance through art.
Leopoldo Flores was a renowned muralist and painter, who in his professional career defended the opening of new aesthetic and social opportunities in order to create conditions to conceive dialogues between the various alternative aesthetic expressions and the measured lines of contemporary art. Open Art is the hinge that drives social differences in aesthetic matches.
Open Art, Art for All also recognizes the work of Dr. HC Leopoldo Flores Valdés as a cultural leader, reflected in his legacy at the Leopoldo Flores University Museum over sixteen uninterrupted years of work, thirteen announcements and museum halls lined with innovative artistic expressions of painting, sculpture, graphics, installation, sound art, video and actions. This heritage allows us, as a museum of contemporary art, to stay current and consistent with the needs of contemporary art production while continuing to encourage renewal for 40 years.
