To the uninitiated, the term "Latin American art" conjures well-worn names and limited geographic understanding: Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera.

In 2002 Cisneros, who is married to Venezuelan media magnate Gustavo Cisneros, opened a virtual museum (at coleccioncisneros.org), allowing viewers access to cutting-edge works representative of the region's lesser-known art trends. "Geometric abstraction, for example, is now one of the most important elements of Latin American art," she says. "Vastly different from Frida and Diego."
