Wagner Cultural Center

The Arturo Wagner Cultural Center was founded in 1962 by Don Arturo Wagner Sarmiento, who donated the house or building where it would operate, and by Dr. Manuel José Cárdenas and Dr. Carlos Medellin, who gave it the intellectual and legal framework still in place today.  This was the first in Cundinamarca and the second in the country, after the Del Socorro Center established in 1957 by the historian Horacio Rodríguez Plata, who determined the structural principles for Cultural Centers.
