The Ambassador of Peru, His Excellency Carlos Pareja, and his wife, Mrs. Consuelo Salinas Pareja will be hosting an evening of art and music at the Residence of the Ambassador benefiting the Art Museum of the Americas (AMA) and publicizing its collection. The event, featuring performances by pianist Zsolt Balogh and Baritone José Sacín, is sponsored by the Friends of the Art Museum of the Americas. Cocktails and Light Fare will be served.

Making AMA’s Collection Public will further study, rethink, re-contextualize and publicize the artistic, cultural and scholarly significance of the AMA’s permanent art collection. The bilingual (English & Spanish) printed book and online catalog will feature 100 Latino and Latin American artworks in AMA’s permanent collection. It will allow AMA’s public and website visitors to access, understand, enjoy, and use AMA’s collection as never before.

AMA’s wonderful collection, one of the first ever of its type assembled in the United States since 1957, has been continually supported by one of the oldest archives of modern and contemporary Latin American and Caribbean art, formally created in the late 1930s.

The Residence of the Embassy of Peru is located on 26 acres in the heart of Washington, DC. Built in 1928, the elegant mansion is filled with art reflecting the rich culture and heritage of Peru.

The Friends of the Art Museum of the Americas is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to supporting the Mission of the OAS DCAMA through outreach and fundraising. The Museum, which is located at 201 18th Street NWin Washington, , has a permanent collection of over 2,000 works as well as an extensive program of exhibitions, symposia and concerts. As the first art museum in the United States dedicated to showcasing the creative contributions of artists from across the Americas and the Caribbean, the museum is committed to exhibiting work which promotes the goals of democracy, peace, justice, human rights and solidarity shared by the 35 member countries of the Organization of American States.
