Museu de Arte
Beatriz Milhazes
My cousin Thalma

The Art Museum in Belo Horizonte was designed by Niemeyer in the 40's, originally as a casino. It's a great example of modern architecture. Right now they are showing Beatriz Milhazes - my favorite contemporary brazilian artist. My cousin Thalma, who lives in Conversano, Italy, is visiting and I'm so happy to see her again. Last time we were together I was at the hospital and can't really say I remember it. Better times are coming...
