New Museum: Move Over, Mr. Getty

soumayaCarlos-Slim_587528tMexico is a big, vibrant, diverse, beautiful country. You’d never know that from the American media, which only seem to do stories about the country’s drug wars (which I’m sure you know are fueled largely by America’s appetite for drugs and by the American-made guns that find their way into Mexico). Culturally, Mexico also has contemporary splendors, including the new art museum, the Soumaya, that the world’s richest man, Carlos Slim, just opened in Mexico City. Slim’s museum houses, among other things, his Rodin collection, which is the largest outside France.
