A small mining town in rural Brazil might seem an unlikely place for Latin America’s largest open-air museum. Yet, that is where art buffs and curious tourists will find the Instituto Inhotim, a contemporary-art-gallery-cum-botanical-garden nestled among mining-scarred mountains some 60 kilometers outside of Belo Horizonte, the state capital of Minas Gerais. 

Everything about Inhotim feels extravagant. Three days can seem insufficient to take in everything the place has to offer. The art is set within a verdant 140-hectare park, where over 4,300 species of plants from all over the world grow among the local Cerrado and Atlantic Forest biomes. Nearly 600 pieces of contemporary art are on display, some inside the 24 pavilions — many of which are works of art in themselves — others outside, in a carefully thought-out symbiosis with the surrounding environment.

Burderop House in Chiseldon, Wiltshire, which was redesigned into its current neo-classical square design in the 18th Century, had been used as offices for several decades.

Property developer, Arthur Dallimer, has now converted the house into a home with a downstairs space turned into an arts venue.”I’m very happy to have been able to have brought back one of the town’s most beautiful buildings into its original use like this,” he said.

Off the coast of Colombia beneath the azure waters of the Caribbean Sea, a unique art installation is emerging as a beacon of hope for threatened coral ecosystems. Crafted by artisans Hugo Osorio and Pedro Fuentes, this underwater sculpture gallery located near Isla Fuerte is not just a visual spectacle but also a vital sanctuary for marine life.

Comprising 25 intricately designed figures each standing at a height of 1.5 meters, the gallery serves as an artificial reef offering refuge to corals endangered by the impacts of tourism and climate change. These sculptures placed strategically at a depth of approximately six meters provide an ideal substrate for coral growth attracting a diverse array of marine inhabitants from colourful fish to curious divers.
