*NEW* ONLINE ARCHIVE EXHIBITION CATALOGUES AND BROCHURES
El Museo del Barrio announces the launch of an online archive of exhibition catalogues and brochures from the past fifty years. As important scholarly resources, the digitized publications feature illustrations and texts by artists, scholars, museum professionals, and other experts, that in many cases represent the first, and in some instances, the only existing references on particular artists and/or subjects. Though previously available to scholars by appointment, full text digital reproductions of these materials are now available for open access to the public for the first time.

MI BARRIO: MEMORIES OF HOME
We are delighted to present #MIBARRIO: Memories of Home, a family album that celebrates our personal and shared histories in this neighborhood. This installation reminds us of the importance of heritage and the many ways that Latinx people have enriched the cultural fabric of New York City. In the midst of our barrios and communities facing socio-economic changes and displacement, this collaboration is an important reminder of our roles as advocates and guardians of our culture. We exist and our histories matter.
MI GENTE, GET COUNTED!
The Census directly impacts representation in government and more than $600 billion in federal funding for critical programs such as schools, housing, hospitals, roads and bridges, senior centers, job training and more.
Latinos have been undercounted for decades, disadvantaging their families, communities, and neighborhoods. Latino children in particular are among the most undercounted populations in the United States. Now, more than ever, a full and accurate count is crucial so that our city receives its fair share of resources and representation for years to come.
