I'd Still Be Puerto Rican Even if Born on the Moon
I'd Still be Puerto Rican Even if Born on the Moon
(Yo sería borincano, aunque naciera en la luna*)
Puerto Rican Migration through the Arts
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
Thursday, June 21st, 6:30pm - 9:30pm
