The OAS AMA | Art Museum of the Americas invites you to experience #AMAPermanentCollection, an exhibition presented in partnership with Google Arts and Culture in commemoration of Hispanic Heritage Month 2020, on our four social media walls: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. #AMAatHome #AMAenCasa is AMA’s initiative featuring exhibitions specifically curated for its social media platforms. This exhibition is a carefully curated selection of the AMA collection of more than 2,000 pieces. This collection is a vital bridge between the legacy of Latin American art and a heritage for today’s groundbreaking Latinx artists.
“The Art Museum of the Americas has been a tremendous partner for over five years, bringing the vibrancy of Latin American and Caribbean culture to life digitally on our platform,” said Simon Delacroix, US Lead, Google Arts & Culture. “We’re thrilled to continue our partnership to digitize iconic Latin American art and share it with the world.”
The OAS AMA | Art Museum of the Americas is the oldest museum of modern and contemporary Latin American and Caribbean art in the United States. It is part of the Organization of American States (OAS), an international public organization whose aim is to promote democracy, peace, justice, and solidarity among its 35 member countries. AMA’s origins date back to the Visual Arts Unit of the Pan-American Union (now the OAS), and in the mid-20th century grew as an early catalyst of the parameters of modern art in Latin America and the Caribbean. AMA continues to organize exhibitions and programs with emerging and established artists, providing a space for cultural expression, creativity, and dialogue while highlighting issues central to the OAS (democracy, human rights, development, and security) through the arts. This mission is strengthened through programming emphasizing art that simultaneously furthers dialog on current relevant social and political matters.
