Interior of the Art Museum of the AmericasThe Art Museum of the Americas building, completed in 1912, was designed by Paul Cret and Albert Kelsey as the residence of the Directors General of the Pan American Union, later the Secretaries General of the Organization of American States. In October of 1976, the residence officially opened its doors to the public, repurposed, as the Museum of Modern Art of Latin America, now the Art Museum of the Americas, which shares the arts of OAS member states in this Spanish colonial style building, a National Historical Landmark.
