Posters on the Wall: Our Nuyorican Story
Art Exhibit at Borimix

Centro’s Posters on the Wall: Our Nuyorican Story exhibit opens Thursday, November 14 on the Lower East Side as part of the Society of the Educational Arts (SEA) Borimix Puerto Rico Festival 2013.

The exhibit, curated by Miguel Trelles and Juan Fernando Morales, will make its debut on the Lower East Side after a successful run at the Hunter College Silberman School of Social Work in East Harlem. Highlighting the Puerto Rican silkscreen tradition, this exhibit features art from the 1960s to the 1990s from Centro’s graphic collection. The posters illustrate the rich and diverse work of the Puerto Rican New York cultural scene and constitute an eloquent visual narrative of the stateside Puerto Rican experience.

The exhibit opens at 6 pm an Abrazo Interno Gallery at The Clemente on 107 Suffolk Street. Posters on the Wall: Our Nuyorican Story is part of a building-wide celebration at the Clemente on the 14th that includes the Borimix Awards ceremony. Centro director Edwin Meléndez is among the honorees of a Borimix Award.

The celebration will feature live music, art, poetry, food and drinks. Admission is free.

This year’s Borimix festival, which celebrates many art and cultural events in November for Puerto Rican Heritage Month, is dedicated to the legacy of Rafael Hernández, one of Puerto Rico’s greatest composers known for such masterpieces as Lamento borincano and Preciosa.
