Americas Society

New York City, New York

For nearly 50 years, Americas Society has been featuring Latin American artists, musicians, writers, and leaders in New York City. Our Literature program supported the first English translation of One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez; our Visual Arts program boasts the longest-standing private space in the U.S. dedicated to exhibiting and promoting art from Latin America, the Caribbean, and Canada; our Music program annually showcases dozens of talented artists hailing from across the Americas; and our policy programming explores a wide range of topics—from immigration to Latin American politics. In the past year alone, we’ve hosted Latino inaugural poet Richard Blanco, former Chilean president and head of UN Women Michelle Bachelet, Colombian jazz sensation Edmar Castañeda, and an exhibition exploring the friendship between artist Xul Solar and writer Jorge Luis Borges.

But we couldn’t accomplish what we do without the attendance, participation, and support of people from across the Americas—and the world—who visit us here in NYC. Our historic home at 680 Park Avenue was originally the residence of Percy Rivington Pyne, a prominent New York financier, from 1910 to 1946. It then served as the Soviet Mission to the UN until 1965. In that year, the Marquesa de Cuevas purchased the building to save it from demolition and, in 1966, donated it to the Americas Society, then known as the Center for Inter-American Relations. The building was designated a New York City Landmark in 1970.

We’re thrilled to share our story through WNET’s “Latin Americans of NY & NJ.” We hope you can join us to help us foster an understanding of the contemporary political, social, and economic issues confronting Latin America, the Caribbean, and Canada.
