A photographer takes pictures during a media tour in the Casa Daros at the Casa Daros museum in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Wednesday, March 20, 2013. Local officials aiming to transform Rio de Janeiro from a sleepy cultural backwater into an art hotspot are inaugurating this week Casa Daros, a new museum that draws on one of the world's premier collections of contemporary Latin American art. Casa Daros, a 12,000-square meter (129,000-square foot) exhibition space housed in a renovated 1866 mansion, will bring to Rio some of the around 1,200 pieces acquired over the past 13 years by independently wealthy Zurich-based collector Ruth Schmidheiny.
