You might not expect to hear the words ‘Colombia’ and ‘art’ in the same sentence. However, from private parties in the country’s best galleries to lessons taught by artists in their studios, there is something for everyone. We can design some extraordinary journeys for art enthusiasts. Here are some of our favourite experiences in Bogotá, Cartagena and Medellín:
The Colombian capital has a thriving art scene, with plenty of traditional museums, trendy galleries and interesting, politically inspired street art. A good place to start would be the city’s historic centre, La Candelaría. We can arrange for a brilliant private guide – a young lawyer with a PhD in Law and a Masters in Political Theory from The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) – to take you to the Plaza Bolívar, the setting of a few of the most important events that shaped Colombia’s past, and then continue on to some of the best street art spots. He now works at the International Center for Transitional Justice, so has a wonderful insight into the nation’s history and politics.
