Facts: RaMoMA has built a permanent collection of paintings, sculptures, art installations and videos, most of which have been donated by artists, benefactors or bought for the purposes of growing the collection for Kenya's benefit and future generations.

According to RaMoMA, "a real passion for art is a good place to start, though this passion can be built and nurtured over time. Buying art should be pleasurable and the social interaction that accompanies exhibition openings as well as art events contributes to an active social life," its exhibition brochure says.
