I'd Still Be Puerto Rican Even if Born on the Moon

I'd Still be Puerto Rican Even if Born on the Moon, Puerto Rican Migration through the Arts exhibition, June 2012

Puerto Rican Migration through the Arts

This new exhibit, curated by City Lore’s own Elena Martínez tells the story of the Puerto Rican diaspora to New York City during the 20th century and into the 21st through the lens of expressive culture. Nuyoricans may celebrate Three Kings’ Day differently and wear vejigante masks for the Puerto Rican Parade instead of Carnival, but they are still Puerto Rican—and would be—"even if born on the moon." This exhibit features the work of both traditional and contemporary Puerto Rican artists, many of whom are long-time City Lore collaborators. Opening with a reception on June 21st.

When: Thursday, June 21st - Wednesday, July 25th
Opening Reception:
Thursday, June 21st, 6:30pm - 9:30pm
