Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation — the building near Miami’s Design District with an eye-catching bamboo jungle mural — is closing down its exhibit space. The Miami Herald reports that the final show at CIFO will run through April. That show is devoted to the New World School of Arts’ Bachelor of Fine Art exhibition.

After that, the foundation will present its exhibitions all over Latin America.

“While CIFO’s heart will always be in Miami—as will our operational offices—we are thrilled to be making the transition to an international exhibition model,” CIFO’s founder Ella Fontanals-Cisneros said in a statement. “CIFO’s partnerships with global institutions will ultimately bring our programs, and the vital work of Latin American artists, to a wider audience of art enthusiasts.”
