CPPC Contemporary Art Donation: Press Kit

As part of Gustavo and Patricia Cisneros’ longstanding commitment to building bridges of understanding through education and culture, the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (CPPC) will donate more than 200 pieces from its collection of Latin American contemporary art to six leading museums in Latin America, the United States, and Europe. Encompassing 91 artists from 22 countries, the gift is part of a long-term global initiative supported by Gustavo and Patricia Cisneros and their children to advance scholarship and promote a greater appreciation of the diversity, sophistication, and range of art from Latin America. The six beneficiaries, with whom the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros has developed enduring relationships, are: The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York; The Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid; the Museo de Arte Moderno Buenos Aires; the Museo de Arte de Lima (MALI), Peru; the Bronx Museum of the Arts, New York; and the Blanton Museum of Art at the University of Texas, Austin.
