Established in 1992, The Gabarron Foundation was founded by artist, Cristóbal Gabarrón whose mission was to provide arts education while defending, supporting and disseminating culture in its most varied forms. The Foundation’s growth over the past 20 years has been guided by its mission to “raise awareness through the arts”. The Gabarron Foundation organizes and presents annual programs through its centers and museums in Spain and the United States. The Carriage House Center for the Arts is The Gabarron Foundation’s New York headquarters. Since 2002 the Carriage House has advanced as a platform for the cross-fertilization of Hispanic and Latin American cultures in the United States. The International Awards program was created in 2002 to coincide with The Foundation’s 10th Anniversary, and it has since become an annual event of global proportion, broadcast live worldwide. The Awards recognizes some of the greatest luminaries of our time, ninety award recipients in the past decade, whose work and career trajectories are committed to the defense of those values that constitute the essential principles of The Gabarron Foundation itself.
