Instituto Inhotim is a unique site that offers a broad ensemble of art works, displayed outdoors as well as in both temporary and permanent galleries, all located inside a Botanical Garden of extraordinary beauty. Decreed a Civil Society Organization of Public Interest, Inhotim offers, in addition to these areas of artistic enjoyment and entertainment, environmental research work, educational actions and an important program of social inclusion and citizenship for the local population. The art collection comprises over 500 works by artists of national and international renown, such as Adriana Varejão, Helio Oiticica, Cildo Meireles, Chris Burden, Matthew Barney, Doug Aitken, and Janet Cardiff, among others. Inhotim distinguishes itself from other museums by offering artists unique conditions for developing their art right inside the park.
