The exhibition Puerto Rico Then and Now is dedicated to celebrate Puerto Rican identity and culture. The figure of Ramón Frade interconnects with other historical figures from the same time period, such as Jack Delano.
As part of the exhibition, Robinson Middle and Upper School students collaborated with two public schools to create an installation: Luis Muñoz Rivera from Río Piedras and Delia Dávila Cabán from Toa Baja.
“Puerto Rico is going through a time of uncertainty and economic crisis, but it’s not the first time we’ve been through this.” Our Middle and Upper School art teacher, Arlene Ruiz, wants to use the Visual Arts to show her students that Puerto Rico has survived crises in the past and will continue to do so in the future.
Students mixed History, Spanish, Math and Science with Art to create this amazing exhibition. “Students are really motivated. They even had t-shirts made!” Ruiz added.
We cordially invite you to the Puerto Rico Then and Now art exhibition which opens on November 15. The exhibition will run during the Puerto Rican Culture Week and culminates at our Noche Puertorriqueña next Thursday, November 17.
