Photo Gallery: Exhibit Labor
The opening of Labor, an art exhibition inspired by holdings in the Centro Archives, highlighted the recent inauguration of the Centro Library and Archives’ new location in the Silberman School of Social Work in East Harlem. As Susana Torruella-Leval, co-curator of the exhibition wrote in the exhibit catalog: “Labor pays tribute to the nearly 600,000 workers who migrated from Puerto Rico to the United States during the 1940s and ‘50s in search of work and a better life. It also celebrates Centro’s move to a new home in el Barrio, the portal of the Puerto Rican migration, which gave Centro its founding purpose.”

“Our new home has everything we imagined we would have: a beautiful reading room where we honor our heritage, twenty-four/seven climate control led facilities that meet the rigorous preservation standards, and the most advanced technologies for our staff to continue their excellent work,” said Edwin Meléndez, Centro’s director. “And, our new home is in El Barrio, a place of great historical value and cultural heritage for the Puerto Rican community.”
