Founded in 1996, the museum is dedicated to collecting and exhibiting modern and contemporary Latin American art. Holdings include outdoor sculpture and works by artists ranging from Tamayo and Matta to Cruz-Diez, Los Carpinteros and Tunga.
The museum is located in the East Village Arts District in a building that was originally a silent film studio. Exhibition galleries are housed in what was once a roller skating rink known as the Hippodrome with high vaulted ceilings and wood floors.
