A very interesting exposition gave us the opportunity to see works of Sophia Vari, the wife of Fernando Botero. As always, it was a pleasure to visit this small, though spotless museum of contemporary art!

I visit Andros almost very year and I always make sure I go to visit the museum. I loved Sofia Vari's exhibits especially the sculptures and jewellery! They seem to compliment the amazing building but also its identity within the infinite blue! With the same price visit the permanent exhibition just opposite!
