me, 2.0: jose nazario
beauty and the street
museums and flowers in san juan
today we went to two main places: the art
museum of puerto rico (pictured above) and the jardin botanico at the UPR
campus in SJ.
at the mapr we saw great
exhibits, specifically a henry
klumb exhibit. (great photographs are available
elsewhere since we couldn't shoot in the gallery.) we also saw a great
series of posters aimed at energizing and education the public regarding
a number of social and economic movements in PR, as well as advertisements
for major events. sadly i can't find them mentioned in any great quantity
on the internet.
i'm constantly amazed by the power of posters, stencils and other modern
folk art in the pursuit of pursuasion and social progress. it's good to
see that there is a good history of this in PR, as well.
THE National Heritage Museum PRESENTS: THE PEOPLES OF PUERTO RICO, an older exhibit from
the National Heritage Museum in PR has an example or two of the
posters we saw.
a fantastic collection of the silkscreen posters exists from the Collection of the SDMA.
it looks like trinity college had an exhibit of these posters as well.
fosilarte has a similar exhibit and many of them online.
a profile of lorenzo
homar covers many of the posters he designed with several images. more on lorenzo
homar from PR wow, and some from galeria
an overview of posters in
latin american politics from the university of texas is worth
galeria has a brief discussion and display of the artwork of Rafael
Tufiño, another one of the poster artists.
zen studio has some
neat links to the artists and their works.
