Some fun facts about the Museum :
- Art Museums perform the important function of canonising art and creating a narrative that will eventually become ‘art history’.
- In this respect, the Reina Sofia Museum plays a crucial role in the shaping of the Spanish art historical narrative. It houses a vast collection of works that are representative of the evolution of the culture industry in the country.
- Additionally, it aims to provide a robust and untainted perspective on art and culture.
- Aside from this, the Reina Sofia, like all art museums, has the responsibility of maintain and preserving the rich cultural heritage it proudly houses within its walls. Regular upkeep of these creative treasures is no easy feat.
- Finally, the Museum has undertaken the great duty of promoting the arts and art education. Generation after generation of artists have been inspired by those who came before them. The artistic legacy far outlives the artist.
A Final Thought :
Located at the heart of the national capital, the Reina Sofia is a monument to the history of Spain and its culture industry.
