The Chocolate Cortés Collection is fundamentally based on a cultural conception of the Caribbean that underscores a relationship with Afro-Caribbean and Latin American artistic expressions. The Collection focuses on painting while also including photography, video, ceramics, sculpture, relief work, assemblage, prints, drawings, collage, constructions, boxes, neon, and African tribal art. There are also anthropological artifacts and historical documents.
