  • Excepcional. também chamado de Palacete das Artes Rodin Bahia, é um museu baiano localizado no bairro soteropolitano da Graça. O primeiro e o segundo piso do museu são dedicados às coleções do escultor francês Auguste Rodin. O Palacete das Artes, no bairro da Graça, em Salvador, recebe a exposição “Formas e Sentimentos”, da artista visual e restauradora Elisabeth Roters Coutinho. A mostra, apresentou cerca de 40 esculturas em argila, explorando o tema “cabeças”. Provavelmente, esta foi a exposição com maior riqueza de detalhes já apresentada no Palacete das Artes. Elisabeth Coutinho encontrou na cerâmica o que considerou o recurso mais eficiente para materializar as obras e aprofundar os estudos de efeitos de volumes, sombras, brilhos, texturas, contrastes e expressões. Atualmente, mais precisamente em setembro de 2019, o Museu recebeu a excepcional exposição "O Gênio dos Gênios – Leonardo da Vinci". Mostra homenageia os 500 anos da morte do artista e cientista italiano.
