For the past fifteen years, Robert S. Wennett and Mario-Cader Frech have provided support to contemporary artists from El Salvador. This commitment began in 2000 with the coordination and support of exhibitions of Salvadoran art at the Latin American Cultural Space in Washington D.C., followed in 2004 with a partnership with the Museum of Art of El Salvador (MARTE) in San Salvador to establish their highly regarded contemporary art program, MARTE Contemporary. In 2013 the Robert S. Wennett and Mario-Cader Frech Foundation teamed up with curator Claire Breukel and artist Simon Vega to produce Y.ES Collect Contemporary El Salvador, the first publication and bilingual e-book of contemporary Salvadoran art accessible to audiences globally. In 2015, the Foundation continues its support through the initiative Y.ES focused on developing artists from El Salvador through education, exchange and ambitious programming.
