Pablo Atchugarry Foundation (Fundación Pablo Atchugarry)
The Pablo Atchugarry Foundation (Fundación Pablo Atchugarry), a nonprofit started in 2007, is a must-see attraction of the arts in Punta del Este. With an exhibition building, an auditorium, an open-air stage, a space for art classes and a collection of Atchugarry’s permanent works, the site is an art lover’s dream.
Visitors will also find a sculptor’s workshop and the 30-hectare International Sculpture Park, which offers a natural setting to appreciate the work of local and international artists. Here, an emphasis has been placed on the importance of language diversity.
Atchugarry was born in Montevideo in 1954, and by age 11, he was already exhibiting at shows. The artist is best known for his sculptures, which have appeared in both European and Latin American public spaces. He himself chose the location and design of the art center with the goal of creating a “dialogue between art and nature.” Today, the sculptor lives and works in Italy, where he also maintains another museum named after him.
