It will also consider how artists’ choices may engender a rich dialogue between diverse communities and potentially impact social change. The participating artists are Miguélàngel Ruíz from the Vejigantes of Puerto Rico: Origins Myths and Messengers, Daniel de Jesús from A Contemporary Madonna Counter Point: Mexico & Puerto Rico, and Cecile Chong from the exhibition The Iconography of Meaning.
