Busy, pedestrianized Moneda Street in the heart of the Historic Center runs from the Zócalo, the main plaza. It is a raucous slice of inner city life with crowds of people and vendors hawking their wares at the top of their lungs.
Cuevas died just last month at the age of 83.
In 1992 he purchased the former convent, restored its colonial architecture, and opened it as a museum containing his private collection. As you enter the courtyard you see a 26 foot high statue entitled "La Giganta" (The Giantess). It's the most impressive item in the museum. (In my opinion, the only impressive item.)
A couple of galleries are devoted to Cuevas's collection of contemporary Latin American art.
Several galleries are devoted to the artwork of Cuevas, mostly drawings.
