The donated collection comprises serigraphs, paintings, and mixed media works by forty artists and masters from fourteen Latin American countries and the United States, including Cundo Bermudez, Coqui Calderon, Humberto Calzada, Antonia Guzman, Wifredo Lam, Rafael Soriano, and Fernando De Szyszlo. Many of the works will be showcased in the museum's upcoming exhibit, "Reflections of the Americas: New Acquisitions from the Collection of Univision."
"This wide-ranging collection, housed and exhibited throughout the hallways of our flagship Univision Television Network broadcast facility in Miami, has served as a constant inspiration and reflection of the rich tapestry of cultures and traditions that make up this country's diverse Hispanic community," said Jessica Rodriguez, executive vice president and chief marketing officer at Univision Communications.
"The Frost Art Museum FIU is honored to have been chosen by Univision for this donation of Latin American art," said Frost Art Museum director Jordana Pomeroy. "This collection from Univision aligns naturally with our mission to inspire and propel Miami's evolution as a cultural destination. For the first time ever, for this year's Art Basel season the Frost Art Museum FIU is dedicating our galleries to showcase Latin American artists with a winning trifecta of three exhibitions: 'Reflections of the Americas: New Acquisitions from the Collection of Univision'; 'Rafael Soriano: The Artist as Mystic'; and 'Continental Abstractions: Highlights from the Art Museum of the Americas'."
