The Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (CPPC), founded in the 1970s by Patricia Phelps de Cisneros and Gustavo A. Cisneros, is one of the core cultural and educational initiatives of the Fundación Cisneros. Based in New York City and Caracas, the CPPC’s mission is to advance scholarship of Latin American art, promote excellence in visual-arts education, and encourage a high level of expertise among Latin American art professionals. The CPPC additionally works to enhance appreciation of the diversity, sophistication, and range of art from Latin America. It achieves these goals through the preservation, presentation, and study of the material culture of the Ibero-American world—from modern and contemporary art to colonial and federalist furniture—as well as the material evidence of Latin America’s indigenous peoples. CPPC activities include exhibitions, publications, grants for scholarly research and artistic production, and the internationally-recognized education initiative Piensa en arte/Think Art.
