On December 2009 Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz opened a new space in Miami's Design District to showcase their personal collection of international contemporary art. The 30,000 square foot structure designed by John Marquette serves as an extension of their home, which has been available for public viewing for the past fifteen years. The collection includes permanent installations as well as rotating exhibits and special performances throughout the year.

The collection has established a program where local artists are invited to propose ideas for site-specific installations that are exhibited in one of the project rooms. In this initiative to support our local art scene, artists are encouraged to create works based on art as a temporary experience and establish an open platform using non-traditional practices.

In order to serve our schools, a series of workshops and classes were established this year in collaboration with Dade County Public Schools. These programs are intended to give our local students an opportunity to learn about different approaches to the creation and presentation of contemporary art. Students are encouraged to visit the space and library throughout the year and apply for internship positions. A reading and research center with selections from the de la Cruz's personal art library is open to the local community at no cost. Throughout the year a series of lectures and programs will concentrate on creating public awareness of art history and contemporary art practices.

As of June 2010, the de la Cruz collection started a residency program collaborating for the first year with the SculptureCenter, New York. Artists are invited to stay in Miami for a period of four to six weeks. The residency is an opportunity to connect with the diverse and active local community and to explore the history, culture and natural resources of South Florida.
