Centro de Cultura Corp Banca

This institution surpasses the definition of art gallery because it is (as denoted by its name) a nucleus of cultural activity, and one that many Caracans still identify with its original sponsor, Banco Consolidado. When the financial institution (Banco Consolidado) changed ownership, it also changed its name, so this cultural center adopted the new name as well, Corp Banca. The activities include not only exhibitions, but also guided tours, audiovisual projections and meetings with national and foreign art critics. Admission is free.
