The Museum of Art and Design-Miramar in San Juan, Puerto Rico is located in “The Pink House” at Cuevillas 607. The house was originally built as the home for Judge Luis Mendez-Vaz and his wife Maria Bagur. It was later purchased by their son Eduardo Mendez-Bagur. He bequeathed it to the Miramar community.

All of the works on display are by Puerto Rican artists.

    Love the pictures of the paintings from this museum , especially the senora wearing her best bathing suit with her green curlers in her hair. Sorry, that reminds me of the Puerto Rican and Dominican ladies here in New York City who do the same thing and look oh so mas linda!

    Wait, are those people real? I’ve seen some window art in L.A. where a model would stand in the window and turn or move ever so slightly every few minutes but never enough to indicate real movement, just like the character Turn Around Norm in the Tom Robbins book (I forget which one, maybe “Skinny Legs and All”).
