EAST HARLEM, Manhattan — There’s no doubt that this past year has been filled with major world changing events.
El Museo Del Barrio recently unveiled its first large-scale survey of Latin American art addressing some of these historic moments.
Social justice, climate change and the global pandemic are among the different themes woven into the museum’s exhibit entitled Estamos Bien.
The name is inspired by one of the featured artworks in the show delivering a message of hope and resilience. It’s also the first of a three part series, La Trienal.
Forty two artists and art collectives from the United States and Puerto Rico, and about 150 pieces make up the exhibit. There are familiar New York Bodega staples, while other works of art are meant to spark conversation, and inspire change.
El Museo del Barrio is the first museum in the United States dedicated to preserving U.S Latino and Latin American art and culture.
Estamos Bien La Trienal runs through Sept. 26th and is open on weekends from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
