A celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
La Borinquena is an original character and patriotic icon that debuted in 2016 in an independently published graphic novel series created and written by Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez. Her superpowers are drawn from the history and mysticism of the archipelago Boriken (Puerto Rico) and the Tainos, its indigenous people.
Edgardo has curated his personal collection of artworks from his La Borinquena series to give visitors a glimpse into the world he created that equally balances the graphic novel genre with activism and advocacy.
The exhibit at the Gallery is an inter disciplinary collaboration co-sponsored by the Hispanic Heritage Month Committee, the Human Rights Committee and the Faculty Student Association.
ARTE DE LA BORINGUENA will be on view in the Plaza Art Gallery located in the Tower Building, Plaza Level from
September 22 through December 22 with the Opening reception is scheduled for September 22nd from 5-7 pm in the Gallery.
This exhibition made its debut at the gallery of Fundacion Corte in Vlejo San Juan, Puerto Rico and will tour across the United States with the generous support of Cortes Hermanos. Please call the Gallery at 516.572.9699 for additional information and Gallery hours.
