The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) presents a Landmark Digital Archive of 20th-Century Latin American and Latino Art.

The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and its research institute, the International Center for the Arts of the Americas (ICAA), have launched a digital archive of primary-source materials relating to 20th-century Latin American and Latino art, culled by hundreds of researchers based in 16 cities in the U.S. and throughout Latin America. The online archive is available worldwide, free of charge, at www.icaadocs.mfah.org, and is intended as a catalyst for the future of a field that has been notoriously lacking in accessible resources. The phased, multi-year launch has begun with 2,500 documents from Argentina, Mexico and the American Midwest, capping the 10th-anniversary year for the Latin American program. The first volume in a companion series of 13 annotated books will be published in February, with subsequent volumes in the series published annually. – www.icaadocs.mfah.org
