CIFO has three primary initiatives:  – CIFO Art Space – a permanent venue for the presentation of engaging and provocative contemporary art exhibitions highlighting works from the Ella Fontanals-Cisneros Collection, works by its grantees and commissioned artists, and experimental, challenging art programs;  – Grants and Commissions Programs supporting emerging and mid-career contemporary artists from Latin America; and – Foundation-initiated support for other arts and culture projects.
Ella Fontanals-Cisneros began collecting art in the 1970s, and today her collection includes important Geometric Abstract works from Latin America including pieces by Gego, Jesús Rafael Soto, Alejandro Otero, and Segio Camargo among others. It also includes cutting-edge pieces by some of the leading contemporary artists of our time.
