  • “Boricua Imprint” Poster Exhibit
    Celebrates Puerto Rican Heritage

    Every year Comité Noviembre (CN) celebrates Puerto Rican Heritage Month throughout November with a host of cultural, artistic and educational activities that bring awareness of the contributions of Puerto Ricans in the United States. As a gift, attendees get the special CN poster for that year, autographed by an artist and inspired by a specific theme that speaks to the heart of the Puerto Rican people.

    Many of these posters are currently on display at the “Boricua Imprint” graphics exhibition at Taller Boricua at the Julia de Burgos Cultural Center, 1680 Lexington Ave. in East Harlem. The poster exhibit, which began in 2011 to commemorate CN’s 25th anniversary, has grown in popularity.
