On January 24, 2013 Hyundai donated $25,000 to match the Museum of Latin American Art’s (MOLAA) fundraising efforts to purchase a bus to offer local students access to modern and contemporary Latin American art. Hyundai’s gift will allow the Museum initiate the MOLAA on the Move initiative to serve an additional 5,000 students annually from schools in the Greater Los Angeles Metropolitan Area.
MOLAA is the only museum in the United States exclusively dedicated to the presentation of modern and contemporary Latin American art and plays a critical role in the vitality of our nation’s cultural landscape, serving the significant and fast growing Latino population. Despite its relevance, few institutions across the US preserve and present the artistic contributions and the rich cultural heritage of Latin America, especially in the 20th and 21st centuries. MOLAA fills this void by educating the public about modern and contemporary Latin American art through the presentation of a significant permanent collection, dynamic exhibitions and related educational and cultural programs.
