“Our art collection includes works made since the mid 1980s that interact and engage in dialogue amongst themselves. Here, you can witness 'the push and pull’ of abstraction and figuration as well as that of the accidental gesture versus the deliberate one. This is the story of contemporary American art influencing and being influenced by the contemporary artists from Central Europe over the last three decades.”

- Rosa de la Cruz

“The 30 year time span covered by the works in the Collection observed the dismemberment of the Soviet Union, the reunification of Germany, the preeminence of U.S. global rule, the beginnings of a general awareness of both the positive and negative consequences of globalization, as well as domestic social issues such as the AIDS epidemic, gender identity, and continued racial conflict. ”
