Cinematógrafo del Chopo
Chopo University Museum. Enrique González Martínez 10, Col. Santa María la Ribera
Cinematógrafo del Chopo is part of the Chopo University Museum, inaugurated by the rector of the University, Guillermo Soberón, on November 25th, 1975. Ever since it first opened its doors, the Chopo University Museum became a dynamic center for the promotion of contemporary art, characterized by an innovative, including, and diverse spirit. Through its work, the Museum has placed itself as an obligatory reference in avant-garde art.
In 2006 and 2007, the Chopo Museum renovated its premises to better help with the necessities of contemporary art through an intervention by architect Enrique Norten, implemented by the Coordinación de Proyectos Especiales de la UNAM (UNAM Special Projects Coordinating Office) in charge of architect Felipe Leal. The goal was to establish continuity in the artistic project and to keep contributing towards one of the essential duties of the UNAM: to spread the benefits of culture to the largest amount of citizens through the promotion and diffusion of contemporary art.

Faro de Oriente, Faro Tláhuac, Faro Milpa Alta y Faro Indios Verdes
Faro de Oriente (East-Side Lighthouse) represents an alternative view for cultural intervention. The aim is to offer a proficient cultural promotion as well as quality art and handicraft education for a population physically, economically, and symbolically disenfranchised from conventional cultural circuits.
It combines an art and trades school, a cultural venue offering relevant artistic experiences, and a public square. All of these elements create a new vision of cultural development through which access to these kinds of activities becomes a regular experience. There is an art gallery, a library, a toy library, and a bookshop. It also offers regularly free courses and workshops.
