On October 2, 2012 the Emilio Sanchez Foundation closed after an eleven-year span of accomplishing its mission of promoting and preserving the legacy of the important Cuban-American Modernist artist of the 20th century, Emilio Sanchez. We are grateful to all the people who have supported, advised and helped us through the years to make this a reality. We have entrusted Sanchez’s artwork to over 70 museums and institutions, and his documents into the Archives of American Art. We hope that his work will be cherished, studied, exhibited and further brought to light.

Dr. Ann Koll has stepped down as the Executive Director and Curator of the Foundation and expresses her gratitude to the community of Sanchez supporters for the honor of working to perpetuate Sanchez’s contribution to the arts. Without her the Foundation could not have existed and achieved its goals.
