BRONX, NY.- The Bronx Museum of the Arts is one of four museums selected by the Emilio Sanchez Foundation to receive a gift of paintings and drawings by the internationally renowned artist, as well as an archival database of Sanchez’s works, photographs, and documents, to add to their permanent collections.

A selection of these artworks is on display throughout the fall at the Museum.

Queens Museum of Art, NY, received 27 oils and watercolors related to Caribbean and New York themes, supporting the Museum’s commitment to exhibiting works of New York multi-cultural artists.

Syracuse University Museum of Art, NY, received Sanchez’s most complete master set of 207 prints, where it will be preserved and studied in its active research library specializing in American prints. This master set includes a selection of 50 oils, watercolors, and drawings directly corresponding to the themes of the prints. The university library also received Sanchez’s library of books.
