Inter-American Development Bank

Inter-American Development Bank
Washington, United States

Here at the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), we work to improve lives in Latin America and the Caribbean. Through financial and technical support for countries working to reduce poverty and inequality, we help improve health and education, and advance infrastructure. Our aim is to achieve development in a sustainable, climate-friendly way. With a history dating back to 1959, we are today the leading source of development financing for Latin America and the Caribbean.

The IDB Art Collection was established in 1992 and houses close to 2,000 objects, predominately from Latin American and the Caribbean. As the stewards of this collection, the IDB Cultural Center seeks to enhance society’s understanding of the role of creativity in development work by promoting the virtues of the creative industries – those endeavors that lie at the crossroads of art, design, culture, business, and technology.
