Live The Art - Puerto Rico

International Call for Mail Art "Viva el Arte” / Live the Art of the Association of Plastic Artists of Puerto Rico, Inc.

In September 2017 Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricane Maria, one of the most catastrophic and devastating storms that has occurred in recent decades in the Caribbean region. Many of our art museums and cultural institutions, as well as our visual artists suffered damages in their facilities, workshops and art projects, leaving cultural activity in our art scene paralyzed.

In these moments of cultural crisis and uneasiness, the Asociación de Artistas Plásticos de Puerto Rico Inc. (the Association of Visual Artists of Puerto Rico in English), desire that the visual arts part of our culture are rehabilitated quickly in the local and international sphere. La Asociación de Artistas Plásticos Rico Inc. calls for the international community to participate in our campaign, Mail Arts under the title "Live the Art", in solidarity and celebration of Puerto Rican artistic and cultural expressions.

Our campaign seeks to demonstate that regardless of an natural or man-made adversities, art and culture will always manifest  and shine for the enjoyment of humanity.
All submissions will be published and announced in a blog that will contain all exhibitions that we will show in different libraries, cultural centers, universities, art galleries and museums around Puerto Rico inconsideration of their specific availability of the facilities.
