We are a contemporary art museum. Our collection and exhibitions show the way in which we see the world and see ourselves: the objects corresponding to history and the society that created them; objects that are conserved, studied and enhanced with the aim of reaching a better knowledge of our environment and of ourselves. Four fundamental principles guide our work: a critical reading of history, a critical reading of the territory, the impact on the city of Medellín and the social appropriation of art. Our project was founded in 1881 as a cultural and educational project, making us one of the oldest museums in Colombia. We have one of the largest collections in the region, with 6,000 works and historical documents. Our exhibitions and our educational-community projects turn art into a fundamental tool to help us reflect our nature as a society.

He started off hacking text-based games like Lemonade Stand to gain an advantage while playing and soon started creating his own text-based Role-Playing Games in the style of Dungeons and Dragons and inspired by his favorite comic books. The enjoyment of those early days stuck with him, and he continues to be drawn back into the programming world throughout his career.Payne is the former Editor-in-Chief/Community Manager of Developer Shed, an online publication and community consisting of 14 websites and forums dedicated to programming, web development, and Internet Marketing. He's written over a thousand articles on coding and marketing, covering virtually every language and platform available. His first book, Beginning Python (Wrox Press) was published in 2010. In addition, he has published over 2,000 articles covering topics ranging from gaming to aerospace/aeronautics, and also writes adult horror and young adult fantasy books. Payne decided to write this book to pass on his love of development in the hopes that it would inspire future generations to code.
An exemplary entry in the filmography of master director John Ford, The Quiet Man contains all the aspects that mark Ford’s work: a poetic, deeply felt sentiment for an unregainable past, for tradition and ceremony, for the country of Ireland and its emigrant bloodlines, for the camaraderie within community, and for the profound yet mutable bond of the marital union. Within a seven-decade career filled with high points, The Quiet Man represents one of Ford's highest, and from his richest period. Set in the 1920s, The Quiet Man stars John Wayne as Sean Thornton, an Irish-born American who has travelled to his birthplace of Innisfree to lay claim to his family farm. Although warmly embraced by the denizens of the village, Thornton’s outsider status is thrown into relief when the abrasive landowner Squire Will Danahan (Victor McLaglen) objects both to the turnover of the land, and to the handing over of his sister Mary Kate’s (Maureen O’Hara) dowry to the man whose community stature now threatens to show up his own. What follows is a confrontation with custom and with the personal past, all before an unforgettable extended brawl sprawling the entire very countryside whereupon nothing less hinges than the peace of Innisfree itself. Winton Hoch’s astonishing Technicolor cinematography (for which he won an Academy Award) has cemented the images of The Quiet Man within the minds and hearts of viewers across the decades. This is a film that, with its epic, yet intimate, canvas and its near-Shakespearean sense of character only grows in power over time and the more times it is seen. It is an ideal entry-point into Ford’s massive body of work, and a summation of his art; as a result, Ford was awarded the 1952 Oscar for Best Director. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present The Quiet Man on Blu-ray in the UK for the first time.
