Attend art exhibitions and live music events at this cultural complex designed by Oscar Niemeyer and located in a city center park. 

The Palace of Arts (Palácio das Artes) is an arts and entertainment venue in Belo Horizonte. It is the largest events center in the state of Minas Gerais. The Palace of Arts is part of the Fundação Clóvis Salgado cultural institution. Enjoy classical music and opera performances, dance shows, movie screenings and traveling art expositions. 

Within the Oscar Niemeyer-designed complex is a series of concert halls, exhibition spaces, galleries and theaters. Among them is the Grande Teatro do Palácio das Artes. It has welcomed productions of Carmen, La Bohème and Madame Butterfly to its stage in addition to performances by B.B. King, Mercedes Sosa and Miles Davis.

The Grande Galeria Alberto da Veiga Guignard is dedicated to showcasing visual arts by national and international artists. It is one of four spaces devoted to visual arts. Watch mainstream and independent movies at the Cine Humberto Mauro. 

Contemporary and experimental theater productions take place in the intimate João Ceschatti Theater.
