Description: Centre of contemporary art, which opened in June 2008, originated from the agreement signed in February 1999 between the cities of Bragança and Zamora. The center of contemporary art Graça Morais aims to promote awareness and knowledge of national and international contemporary art in general, and the work of the painter Graça Morais, in particular. It is based on a dynamic programme of temporary, collective and individual exhibitions, reinforced by the framework of multidisciplinary initiatives, through the Organization of educational programs that promote, expand, and keep the public interested in contemporary art. The Art Center also has as objective the creation of a collection of art, from donations, works in deposit or direct purchases. It was designed by the architect Eduardo Souto Moura, winner of the 2011 Pritzker Award (the highest award in the world of architecture).
