A very timely article written by local reporter Mike Kinney for the Richmond Standard is making the rounds on social media. He came to my studio and took photos of paintings in progress, all of them of diaspora Puerto Ricans.
These paintings will be shown at the EBMUD Administrative Building’s gallery in Oakland. The reception is on Thursday, September 12, from 5:30 to 7:00 PM. The show will run until October 16.
Taller Bombalele will be playing Puerto Rican bomba music, and two Puerto Rican Activists will talk about their work supporting people in Puerto Rico.
