¡Presente! The Young Lords in New York City – three exhibitions through October 18, 2015.

Facilitating conversations about grassroots community activism, The Bronx Museum of the Arts have organized a multi-venue artistic and cultural survey of The Young Lords Organization—a radical social activist group founded by Puerto Rican youth in the 1960s that demanded reform in health care, education, housing, employment, and policing. Exhibitions of art and archival materials are currently running at three cultural institutions in New York City through October 18 – The Bronx Museum of the Arts (July 2 – October 18, 2015), El Museo del Barrio (July 22 – October 17, 2015), and Loisaida Inc. (July 30 – October 10, 2015) – exploring how the Young Lords’ activities, community-focused initiatives, and their affirmation of Puerto Rican identity inspired artists from the 1960s to the present day. We’re looking forward to our tour of all three locations this week.
