Aquí vive gente centers the experiences of the people of Puerto Rico’s Puerta de Tierra against urbanization and cultural loss. The storefront display features art, murals, and photography celebrating the lives and culture of the region. Started by grassroots artists and organizers, it is the mission of Brigada Puerta de Tierra to preserve stories and art for the purposes of education and community work, making strides since 2015 to restore the region with art, workshops, and community practices.
Aquí vive gente is on display until September 7th at 97 Kenmare Street, New York, NY.
