“Sharing the artistic and cultural awareness means learning to understand, value and love art, so everyone can enjoy looking at it.” – Hortensia Herrero

The Hortensia Herrero Art Centre (CAHH) has two key aims. One is to share the best international contemporary art with society at large and the other is to help turn the Valencian Autonomous Community into a top cultural and artistic destination. The Centre will show off the Hortensia Herrero Foundation’s private collection, which includes works by artists such as Andreas Gursky, Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz, Miquel Barcel√≥, Alexander Calder, Tony Cragg and Anish Kapoor, as well as temporary exhibitions of other world-famed artists.

The project also meets one of the Foundation’s key aims, namely heritage conservation by restoring and repurposing an iconic Valencian palace, Palacio Valeriola (Valeriola Palace), an iconic 17th-century building in the Baroque Style, in Valencia’s Old Town. Furthermore, once the Valeriola Palace has been restored, the Hortensia Herrero Art Centre will also house the offices of the Hortensia Herrero Foundation, sprang to life in 2012 with the mission of fostering interest, knowledge and awareness of art and culture.

Hortensia Herrero is the President of the Foundation that bears her name. She is Vice-President and majority shareholder of Mercadona, Spain’s biggest supermarket chain. Her philanthropic work stems from her wish to give back to the land where she was born and that has given her so much in life.
