Inhotim

Inhotim Contemporary Art and Botanical Garden Institute is a museological complex consisting of exhibition pavilions and open-air sculptures dotting a 97-hectare countryside campus. Ever since its outset as a Brazilian cultural institution, Inhotim's aim has been to create an art collection and define museological strategies that allow for community access to cultural assets. The Inhotim’s gardens, home to works of renowned contemporary artists, are recognized for their singular beauty and for the landscaped layout of their botanical collection. But the Inhotim’s gardens are not just a place of esthetic contemplation. Within this context of rare beauty, floristic studies are conducted, new botanical species are cataloged, ex situ conservation and landscaping use of species are performed to raise popular awareness of the need to preserve biodiversity.

The Inhotim Institute is located in the city of Brumadinho, 60 km from Belo Horizonte.
