Contemporary Latin American and Caribbean artworks are on display inside this picturesque, red-tile-roofed, Spanish-colonial-style structure. The museum rotates art from its permanent collection of 2,000 works, and sometimes collaborates with other organizations to mount special exhibits, often with the purpose of highlighting themes of democracy, development, and human rights. The Organization of American States opened the museum in 1976 as a gift to the U.S. in honor of its bicentennial.
