The Galería Maestro Antonio Rodríguez is inside the Jaime Torres Bodet Cultural Center. Together, they’re among the most prominent places international visitors are likely to visit on the main campus of the Politecnico.

The gallery is a frequent site for exhibitions. The cultural center frequently hosts all sorts of cultural events. Many of these will include international participants along with those from the national and city academic communities.

The Politecnico is the Instituto Politécnico Nacional (IPN). The cultural center is one of the main public buildings on the very large IPN campus in Industrial Nuevo Vallejo. The campus on the whole is called the ‘Unidad Profesional Adolfo López Mateos.’ At about 2.1 square kilometers, most students refer to it as Zacatenco. This names comes from San Pedro Zacatenco, 43 hectares of which constitute the present IPN campus.

The campus has its own Metro station, Politecnico. For the eastern side of the campus, including the Galería Maestro Antonio Rodríguez and the Jaime Torres Bodet Cultural Center, most guests will arrive to Metro Lindavista.

On the edge of the very large Zacatenco campus, this is one of the true hives of activity at IPN.
