"A comprehensive collection of contemporary art and sculpture has also been acquired over the years, mainly Portuguese but with some works by British artists. This is housed in the José de Azeredo Perdigão Modern Art Centre.Modern Art Centre was opened in 1983 in southern part of the Gulbenkian Park. Ten years later, as a tribute to the Chairman of the Foundation's first Board, it was renamed the José de Azeredo Perdigão Modern Art Centre (CAMJAP).
The CAMJAP building consists of two separate sections: the Modern Art Museum, which comprises three interconnected galleries, and a space for cultural events, including a multi-purpose room for events and meetings. A reception hall with a cafeteria and bookshop links these premises." [*]

Awesome shot of the artwork! The people look like they are either studying or hiding from the cute photographer! LOL

Is this a free park and museum?

I really had to study this before I understood that it was an art piece and that the "real" people were at a table. I love it when I have to think about things that way, like a puzzle. Thanks for including the second photo - It was cool to see everything from farther back.
