IPAE Asociación Empresarial has recognized the Museum of Pre-Columbian Art, MAP Cusco, managed by the BBVA Foundation, as the winner of the IPAE 2019 award in the category of Promotion of Art and Culture.
The award was given to the Foundation in recognition of its contribution to the progress and dissemination of Peruvian culture through MAP Cusco.
This year, the business meeting organized by IPAE was held virtually and had the support of BBVA in Peru. This edition of CADE Executives analyzed the complex situation of the pandemic and how leaders and citizens must act to do things differently, solving the enormous social, economic and institutional challenges that were accentuated during the health crisis.
The event also had a space to recognize companies and entrepreneurs who promote different initiatives to contribute to the creation of a better country full of opportunities for all. This was the case of the IPAE Award for the Company, a recognition that has been granted every year, since 1961, to companies that, beyond their own activities, contribute to the growth of Peru.
In the category Promotion of Peruvian Art and Culture, the BBVA Foundation was the winner for its project ‘Casa Cabrera: Museum of Pre-Columbian Art in Cusco’. This category recognizes contributions aimed at the enhancement, reconstruction or promotion of cultural works or monuments with historical or artistic value.
Also to the promotion of the conservation and dissemination of our documentary and bibliographic heritage; to the diffusion in the country or abroad of the most valuable and universal elements of Peruvian culture, and to the promotion and diffusion of national art in all its forms of expression.
The Museum of Pre-Columbian Art of Cusco, MAP Cusco, which operates in the historic Casa Cabrera in the Center of the Imperial City, pursues the purpose of offering an artistic and aesthetic vision of the first civilizations of ancient Peru. Currently, the museum is made up of 10 exhibition rooms in which 400 pieces of pre-Columbian art are gathered. Also, a virtual tour was recently launched.
The recognition reaffirms the BBVA Foundation’s commitment to social responsibility and its firm conviction that access to culture and education contributes to building a society made up of citizens aware of their rights and duties, in addition to stimulating a coexistence of solidarity and mutual respect.
Likewise, IPAE awarded Carlos Jorge Hiraoka Torres, director of the Hiraoka Board of Directors, in the Entrepreneur of the Year category, for his professional career and his contribution to the development of the country.
