Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros
The Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (CPPC) was founded in the 1970s by Patricia Phelps de Cisneros and Gustavo A. Cisneros and is one of the core cultural and educational initiatives of the Fundacíon Cisneros. Based in New York City and Caracas, the CPPCs mission is to promote scholarship and enhance appreciation of the diversity, sophistication, and range of art from Latin America. The CPPC achieves these goals through the preservation, presentation, and study of the material culture of the Ibero-American world – ranging from the ethnographic to the contemporary. The CPPCs activities include exhibitions, public programs, publications, grants for scholarly research and artistic production. The CPPCs website (http://www.coleccioncisneros.org) offers a platform for debate concerning the contributions of Latin America to the world of art and culture.
