Founded in 1996, the Museum of Latin American Art is unique in that it is exclusively dedicated to modern and contemporary Latin American art. A Smithsonian Affiliate since 1999, the museum has displayed artworks on loan from the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Smithsonian's contemporary art museum. For the last several years, the Museum of Latin American Art has collaborated with the Smithsonian Latino Center on the Young Ambassadors Program, which recognizes the achievements of graduating high school seniors and fosters their leadership and academic skills.
