A not-for-profit institution, the Americas Society was founded by Nelson Rockefeller in the 1960s to promote and foster the relationship between the people of the United States and Latin America, the Caribbean and Canada. The Society hosts, organizes and promotes many artistic, political, cultural, and social events to support the relations between these countries, and to encourage understanding and unity among them. The building was erected in 1909. It houses an impressive gallery displaying artwork from the Western Hemisphere, which is open to the public.
