Art Galleries

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

Critics agree, in the world there are three "must-see" locations if you call yourself a true art lover: Paris, Florence and Acapulco. All right, maybe Acapulco is stretching it, but the truth is, Acapulco has outstanding local artists. Also, famed muralist Diego Rivera spent his last years in Acapulco, and you can see some of his work and visit his house. Acapulco also has a reasonable selection of art galleries. Not bad for a beach town.

Galería Espacio

By appointment only. Galería Espacio is dedicated to the work of a single artist, Pal Kepenyes, a sculptor born in Hungary, whose works in bronze, copper and other metals are known, loved and respected around the world. Pal Kepenyes has created some of Acapulco’s most admired public sculptures. Some pieces are encrusted with quartz, amber and other precious stones. The magic is the transformation of metal and minerals into an idea, a new aesthetic vision that arises from the materials from which the work of art has sprung. Costera Guitarrón 140 (Brisas Guitarron), Acapulco, Gro., México +52 744 446 5287 or

Sergio Bustamante

This large gallery is across the street from the bars and restaurants and dance clubs of Condesa. Works also appear in the Gallery of the Hotel Mayan Palace [link] and the Grand Hotel Acapulco [link]. The gallery is open daily except Sunday, 10a-2p; 5:30p-9p. It is totally dedicated to the work of Sergio Bustamante, who is best known for his colorful suns and moons, as well as derivatives of folk art animals. Papier-mâché is his medium of preference, but Bustamante also creates in iron, other metals and ceramics. His designs are eclectic, drawing on several different aesthetic traditions. Look for Sergio Bustamante's beautiful designs for silver and gold jewelry in addition to his large, bright, colorful and whimsical ceramic creations.
