This year we gave considerable thought to the different ways we could re-imagine our space. The walls and open space of the first floor, with its massive volume, became the perfect setting for monumental installations. The second floor was transformed into an indoor sculpture garden that brings to mind a public park. And on the third floor, perhaps the most intimate space, we installed a selection of works that through nature explore themes of fragility and temporality.
ABOUT THE COLLECTION:
The de la Cruz Collection Contemporary Art Space is privately funded by Miami-based collectors Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz. The primary purpose of this museum is to exhibit their collection and provide education in the visual arts. Since its inception in 2009, the de la Cruz Collection has organized multiple exhibitions, provided artist residencies and collaborated with other institutions. Their educational programs include lectures, artist-led workshops and daily docent-led tours.
In 2009, the de la Cruz Collection initiated scholarship and travel programs dedicated to enrich the education of our local art students. The purpose of these programs is to create awareness and academic discipline through travel and financial support for both high school and college level students.
