“A Crown Jewel of the Puerto Vallarta Art Scene!”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

My previous review was mis-located to Ixtapa, Mexico and I have not been able to correct it. Actually, in Puerto Vallarta, The Peter Gray Art Museum is on the campus of Centro Universidad de la Costa (CUC), a University of Guadalajara Branch. Taking a taxi was easiest.

It was a gem with an extensive art collection on display ranging in scope from 18th Century to more contemporary work, by Mexican and International artists, both paintings and sculptures. Prominent artists on display include: Joan Miro, Beatriz Castaneda, Carlos Merida, Jose Luis Cuevas, Pedro Coronel, and Pedro Friedeberg, among others. It was delightful! My family and I will go again any time we visit Puerto Vallarta.

Peter Gray was a strong advocate for many local cultural activities and the museum was named in his honor in 2005. With his passing, responsibility for the museum passed to a non-profit Board that includes his wife, Buri Gray. She is also on the City Cultural Commission. For further information regarding the museum contact Buri Gray at (322) 221-5285.

“World Renowned and Highly Regarded Local Art on Display!”
Reviewed 28 June 2013

What a cultural gem of a museum! Located on the beautiful campus at the University of Guadalajara for Puerto Vallarta, Mexico called Centro Universitario de la Costa (CUC) the visit is well worth the effort. Some works were previously exhibited in the Louvre Museum in Paris. There is a wide variety of art in oil, watercolor and charcoal. Also, beautiful tapestries are shown, along with works from well known Puerto Vallarta artists, such as, Barragan, Meg Munro and Ada Colorina. Telephone Hector at 044 322 17 46 053 or 044 322 13 25 215 to be sure the museum will be open. Enjoy yourself, I did!
