    Spotlight Contributions of Nuyorican Artists


    As the repository of one of the largest collections of artworks on paper reflecting the Puerto Rican experience in the United States, Centro is sponsoring two historic art exhibits. One show, in the Hunter College East Harlem Art Gallery, spotlights five accomplished New York-based Puerto Rican artists. A second show, in the lobby adjacent to the gallery – located in the Hunter College Silberman Building, 2180 Third Avenue at 119 St. in East Harlem -- is built from the Centro Archives’ extensive graphics collection.

    The simultaneous exhibits, officially opening September 20 but available for viewing starting September 17, are part of Centro’s 40th anniversary activities. The public is also invited to attend the Conversations with the Artists session from 4:30 to 6 pm and a public reception from 6 to 8 pm on September 20.
