On July 17th 2012, we organized a gathering and invited a group of people who, like us, believed strongly in the necessity for a museum dedicated exclusively to the exhibition, discussion, documentation and formation of contemporary art processes in Guatemala.


Today, these people make up Amigos del NuMu (Friends of Numu), and it is thanks to their generous support that NuMu stands open to the public, free of charge, 24 hours, almost every day of the year.


Throughout the past two and a half years, the public's response to NuMu has been very supportive, from the local and international art communities as well as the neighborhood. NuMu represents a new approach to museum making, and contributes to cultural and economic benefits for the neighborhood whilst providing an opportunity for visitors to experience contemporary art first-hand. We have a small, yet wonderful staff who live in the neighborhood, including Dinora, a restaurant owner and neighbor, responsible for keeping the museum open at its regular hours. We view these neighboring local businesses as extensions of the museum itself.


We are committed to strengthening NuMu's public program and to continue presenting exhibitions by some of the most interesting contemporary artists from across the world.
