Year Established: 1979
Description:

Part of the University of Puerto Rico, Cayey Campus, the Dr. Pío López Martínez Museum of Art opened to the public on June 11, 1979 and has since become well known for its important collection of Puerto Rican silkscreen posters and for safeguarding The Frade Inheritance.

The artistic legacy of Cayey artist and architect Ramón Frade León is maintained through The Frade House, a permanent exhibit designed by Puerto Rican painter Antonio Martorell. These galleries are meant to recreate the house Ramón Frade lived in through the language of early-twentieth-century architecture particular to the mountains of Cayey. They also help show off some of the beautiful interior decoration corresponding to that era, as well as a collection of Frade’s paintings, watercolors, drawings, and other belongings.

The Lorenzo Homar Gallery of the Puerto Rican Poster presents temporary exhibitions culled from the museum’s impressive collection of posters and Puerto Rican graphic art, while the Central Gallery further explores Ramón Frade’s legacy and relevance in the modern art world.
