¡MUEVETE! with NinaSky
Live at 8pm via Zoom Live | RSVP here
NinaSky closes El Museo’s participation in the first ever Virtual Museum Mile spinning a unique sound; a fusion of hip-hop, r&b, pop and reggae.
In 2004, recording artists Nicole and Natalie Albino better known as Nina Sky blazed the music scene. The identical twin’s infectious debut song, “Move Ya Body” and follow-up tracks “Turning Me On,” and “Oye Mi Canto.” not only became club anthems, but propelled the group to Billboard chart success.

*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.
This program is a part of El Museo en Tu Casa, our new bilingual digital initiative encouraging visitors to explore and learn about Latino art and culture. Generously supported by Tony Bechara and the Board of Trustees, the Census 2020, and the NYC COVID-19 Response & Impact Fund.
