— [The Art Museum of the Americas
of the Organization of American States] —

The OAS collection of contemporary art of the Americas was initiated in 1957 by resolution of the Council of the Organization of American States. In 1976, as part of its program of activities honoring the bicentennial of the independence of the United States of America., the OAS permanent council voted to establish this "Museum of Modern Art of Latin America." The museum was inaugurated on October 14, 1976, by the chairman of the permanent council, Ambassador Fernando Ortiz Sanz of Bolivia and by OAS Secretary General Alejandro Orfila.
