In March 2013, the space for art and culture of Daros Latinamerica was opened in Rio de Janeiro. Casa Daros is housed in an elaborately restored neoclassical building of 1866, encompassing an area of over 11,000 square meters.


Each year, Casa Daros will put on two major exhibitions of works from the Daros Latinamerica Collection and will offer programs of art and education featuring workshops, courses, seminars and other events.
