Sofia Imber
Sofia Imber is one of the most outstanding personalities in the history of Venezuelan art and journalism, being a notable advocator for the arts in Venezuela and throughout Latin America.Imber's contributions to the arts as a journalist, art promoter, educator and philanthropist have made her an ideal recipient of VAEA's highest award. As a journalist, Sofia helped the establishment and coordination of the cultural pages of the Venezuelan newspaper El Universal and worked with dozens of publications across the continent for more than fifty years; As a promoter of the arts, in 1973 she founded and directed for 31 years The Museum of Contemporary Art of Caracas, considered to be one of the most important museums of Latin America and recognized for both the quality of its programing as well as its superb collection, which includes the works of Miró, Picasso, Botero and other world-renowned artists; Under Sofia's leadership the MACC was the first Venezuelan museum to offer a library service specializing in art, a space for artistic training for children and adults, a department of special education for the blind and a multimedia center for the arts. Most recently, the Universidad Católica Andres Bello inaugurated the Biblioteca Sofia Imber after receiving her donation of 5,000 books and catalogues, an outstanding contribution for scholars students and future generations.
Sofia Imber's passion and avid advocacy for arts and culture has undoubtedly changed the lives not only of the artists that she has promoted, but also of the millions of people whose lives were improved by having a world-class museum in Caracas.
