Contemporary Latin and American artworks are on display inside this picturesque, red-tiled-roofed, Spanish-colonial style structure. The museum rotates works from its permanent collection of 2,000, but also mounts special exhibits, like the photography exhibit seen in 2014, “Small Guide to Homeownership,” in which Mexican artist Alejandro Cartagena “considers the interdependence of humans and landscape in the face of urban expansion.” The Organization of American States opened the museum in 1976 as a gift to the United States in honor of the U.S.’s bicentennial.
