The Amos Salvador Hall of Logroño is a municipal space dedicated to contemporary art that accommodates the most diverse artistic disciplines through an annual program of temporary exhibitions. Along with artists of national and international fame, local artists and new creators are also protagonists.
The architectural complexAmos Salvador Hall dates from the first quarter of the 14th century, when it was occupied by the Merced Convent. After numerous cessions and renovations, in 1978 it became municipal property again, being included in the initial proposal of buildings to be conserved in the Special Plan for the Historic Center of Logroño.
In 1979, the recovery for civic life of a superb building began that had duly demonstrated throughout history its ability to contain such diverse uses as those of a convent, military hospital, barracks, warehouse, prison and tobacco factory.
The West Room , built at the end of the 19th century to be the drying warehouse of the tobacco factory, thus opened a first phase as an interdisciplinary cultural space —music, theater, painting, sculpture— linked to the new practices brought by the recently conquered democracy .
Since May 1988, with the current name of Sala Amós Salvador and thanks to the diversification of cultural infrastructures in the city, it became a space of specific and exclusive use for the plastic arts.
