Pamplona, Spain -- Museum of the University of Navarra

On January 22, the King of Spain Philip VI and his wife Letizia Ortiz inaugurated the Museum of the University of Navarra in Pamplona. The new building, designed by the architect Rafael Moneo, includes among its collection works by Tapies, Rothko, Picasso, Oteiza, Kandinsky, and Palazuelo.

More than 1,500 people took part in the opening ceremony, including important figures from the artistic and cultural world. The rector of the university, Alfonso Sánchez-Taberno, said that the museum hopes to become the hub of cultural life on the campus and a gateway of communication with the whole world.

The three story museum contains more than 110,000 square feet of floor space. Besides the paintings and sculptures, it also houses the photographic collection of the University of Navarra, made up of 14,000 photographs and 100,000 negatives from the nineteenth century up to the contemporary era, including the artistic legacy of the well-known photographer José Ortiz-Echagüe.
