Dear art colleagues,
On september 2017 Puerto Rico was hit by the fury of Hurricane Maria, one of the most catastrophic and devastating cyclones that have occurred in recent decades in the Caribbean region. Many of our art museums and cultural institutions, as well as our visual and plastic artists suffered damages in their facilities, workshops or artistic productions, leaving cultural activity paralyzed in our art scene.
As a sign of international support for Puerto Rican art in these moments of cultural crisis or uneasiness and with the desire that it again manifests itself quickly in the local and international sphere, the Association of Plastic Artists of Puerto Rico makes this international call for Art Mail / Art Mail under the title “Live the Art” in a brotherly embrace of the creators of the world towards our artistic and cultural expressions.
Demonstrating in this way that no matter the natural or man-made adversities, always the art and culture of the peoples will be manifested and shine for the enjoyment of humanity.
All the consignments will be registered in a blog – http://vivaelartepr.blogspot.com/ – that will open for the exhibition that we hope to show on 2018 by different libraries, cultural centers, universities, art galleries or museums of the country according to the availability of the same and prompt restoration of its facilities.
