From Puerto Rico to the World
El Museo was founded in 1969 by New York City’s Puerto Rican community. The museum has a strong permanent collection of Indigenous Taíno and Puerto Rican art. It produces some world-class exhibitions.
There is some controversy in the community that the museum is no longer led by Puerto Ricans and produces exhibitions that are not Puerto Rican. Yet Puerto Rico itself is a mix of many cultures. Let’s be proud of what we have accomplished and that we are leading the way for other Latin communities in New York and across the United States.
