Mia began collecting art from Latin America and the Caribbean in the 1940s, particularly ceramics, objects in gold, and textiles produced by the ancient civilizations of Central and South America. The collection has grown ever since, largely through generous donations and purchases of work by contemporary artists. The selection of art in this gallery honors these efforts of previous generations to assemble some remarkable artworks, a foundation on which the museum will build a more inclusive collection, representing the full diversity and creativity of Latin American artists.
