El Museo’s programs seek to foster a space for individual and collective sharing and understanding of objects and topics through inquiry and dialogue. Through initiatives like our teen programs, guided tours, or hands-on art workshops, participants have the opportunity to consider the experiences of people from Puerto Rico, Latin America, the Caribbean and the United States in a meaningful way by learning about these regions’ diverse and related histories and cultures and our relationships to them.
El Museo’s Curatorial department is proud to care for one of the largest collections of Caribbean and Latinx art. With over 8,500 objects, the collection is a unique cultural resource that reflects the institution’s decolonized and diasporic history and ethos. The permanent collection has been re-envisioned into six evolving thematic sections, which include: Urban Experiences, Expanded Graphics, African and Indigenous Heritages, Craft Intersection, Women Artists, and Representing Latinx.
