    Shaping Puerto Rican Identity: Selections from the DivEdCo Collection at Centro Library & Archives

    June 5 to June 30, 2014
    Hunter College School of Social Work
    Main Lobby
    The Lois V. and Samuel J. Silberman Building
    2180 Third Avenue and 119th Street

    Open to the public daily. Visitors will need to checkin at the Welcome Center located in the main lobby entrance.

    The División de Educación a la Comunidad (Division of Community Education, or DivEdCo) was a government agency in Puerto Rico from 1948 to 1989. DivEdCo hired many talented young Puerto Rican artists to create attractive educational content in different formats (silkscreen prints, film and pamphlets) to raise awareness on issues deemed important by government policymakers. This exhibition showcases a selection from the 41 prints, 30 pamphlets and 12 films housed in the DivEdCo Collection in the Centro Library and Archives at Hunter College.

  • Centro’s Posters on the Wall
    Decorate Lower East Side

    Runing through August
    Location: First Park, Houston between First and Second Avenues

    Centro’s popular Posters on the Wall: Our Nuyorican Story, an art exhibit built from the Centro Archives’ extensive graphics collection, is now adorning the Lower East Side as part of the FABLES public art project organized by the Fourth Arts Block Association (FABnyc).

    Posters on the Wall was one of the great art shows exhibited for Centro’s 40th anniversary at the Silberman School of Social Work last year, but this time Posters on the Wall is being displayed outdoors as an interactive outdoor exhibit, and it has a new twist: visitors can actually write on the wall of posters, which are reproductions of the originals in Centro’s Archives.

  • President Obama to Honor Borinqueneers
    With Congressional Gold Medal

    The legendary and beloved 65th, fondly known as the Borinqueneers, are a presidential signature away from the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest civilian award Congress can bestow, to the U.S. Army 65th Infantry Regiment.

    Centro researcher and military historian Harry Franqui-Rivera noted that on Tuesday, June 10, President Obama will sign the bill, which he said recognizes the honorable service of the all-Puerto Rican segregated military unit that fought two battles: war and discrimination.
