The Costa Rican Regional Art Museum (Museo Regional de Arte Costarricense) is located in the Tibás Integral Health Clinic (COOPESAIN RL). The museum is a model in which health institutions assume a commitment to protect artistic heritage and conceive art as an integral element of health. Any unit that provides health services should create an environment capable of alleviating the patient’s condition, with the mere enjoyment of adequate waiting rooms, hallways or other patient areas, people feel better.
The Regional Art Museum dedicates to the task of finding a combination of the beautiful physical infrastructure supplemented with the permanent exhibition of art works. Finding a space of tranquility and peace that should go hand in hand with an education process, promoting integral health together with the most sublime of human welfare project: The Art. The base collections are painted murals by Raúl Aguilar with environment themes of the Central Valley and Tibás surrounding mountains. Nowadays the museum’s collection has works by Costa Rican, Spanish, Brazilian, Uruguayan, Chilean and British artists. The Regional Art Museum maintains a constant program of temporary exhibitions of national artists.
