One of the missions of the Vilcek Foundation is to highlight the many contributions to American society and cultural made by immigrants to this country.

The exhibit “From New York to New Mexico: Masterworks of American Modernism from the Vilcek Foundation,” which opens Sunday at the Philbrook Museum of Art, explores the development of a uniquely American form of avant-garde art.
