Rio De Janeiro Cultural Center to Close

Casa Daros, Rio De Janeiro's cultural center, is going to be closing its doors, according to the Rio Times. Ruth Schmidheiny, the owner of the space, said that Casa Daros would cease its operations at the end of the year, and turn its focus elsewhere.

Casa Daros, which opened in 2013 to show the Zurich, Switzerland-based Daros Latinamerica Collection, was seen by some as part of a resurgence of culture and art in Rio.
