Zapopan is mostly known for its 17th-century basilica and adjoining convent, as well as some parish churches and shaded squares with splashing fountains. The Museo de Arte Zapopan (MAZ) can therefore come as a surprise, sitting on the city’s pedestrian-only mall amid vendors selling street food and handicrafts. Founded in 2002, the museum includes several large exhibition spaces that house temporary shows by leading contemporary artists. It’s the sort of space that would not seem out of place in Mexico City, or even New York, but in Zapopan feels like a secret discovery for anyone interested in Mexico’s contemporary art scene. An extra bonus: admission is free.
