Archives and Collections

Description of Collection: 

The Plaza private arts are a collective of four distinct collections. Each one focused in its own area of interest: The Vincent Price Collection contains twenty two pieces of ceramic, wood, and stone artifacts that are very fine pieces of historical note; The Plaza Hispanic Art Collection is a grouping of twenty eight paintings, prints and works on paper that emphasize the art of modern and contemporary artists; The Plaza Folk Art Collection is a gathering of one thousand, nine hundred and forty varied and mostly anonymous items produced in areas all over Mexico (the art works are all executed in a traditional or unschooled manner usually referred to as ‘folk’ or ‘primitive’); The Jose Galvez Collection contains one hundred eighty photographs donated to Plaza in 1989 by the artist himself. The images are a sampling of ten years of photographing the patrons of events held at Lincoln Park. There are a total of two thousand one hundred and seventy individual items that make up the Private Art Collection.
