Foundation for the Advacement of Mesoamerican Studies, Inc.

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is honored to announce it has assumed stewardship of the Foundation for the Advancement of Mesoamerican Studies, Inc. (FAMSI). FAMSI's dedication to research and online collaboration over the past two decades has made it an invaluable tool for pre-Columbian studies internationally and the principal source for research of ancient cultures. By adding FAMSI's significant scholarly resources to LACMA's important pre-Columbian collections, LACMA looks forward to an exciting new future for the Art of the Ancient Americas.  FAMSI will continue to function as in the past. LACMA will announce plans soon for more innovative collections-based research, seminars, and training opportunities. As planning continues, updates will be posted.
