In celebration of El Museo del Barrio’s 50th anniversary and in the context of the exhibition Culture and the People: El Museo del Barrio 1969-2019, join us for a conversation among artists and current and former staff regarding the origins and evolution of our Permanent Collection. Comprised of more than 8,000 objects from across the U.S., Latin America, and the Caribbean, El Museo’s ever-expanding collection is as an important tool for the institution’s educational mission that reflects upon its specific cultural identity. Panelists include: Nicolás Dumit Estévez (Artist); Juan Sánchez (Artist); Susana Torruella Leval (Director Emeritus of El Museo del Barrio); Nitza Tufiño (Artist & Director of Taller Boricua); and Noel Valentin (Permanent Collection Manager of El Museo del Barrio).
