The Bronx Latin American Biennial’s main objective is to create awareness in the arts by developing an international network with Latin American artists, as well as establish the opportunity to exhibit the best of their works. The event is to motivate the creative mind and challenge the contemporary global art community. These group exhibitions, will present art as an expression of the human condition and it reflects the notions of progress, civilizations, welfare, society and culture.
The Bronx Latin American Biennial is aimed to provide education and cultural information for every one, all the events are family oriented. It’s an event that celebrates not only the richness of the Latin American art but also the diversity of our community. This event offers the community the opportunity to access people from diverse cultural backgrounds, languages and ethnicity. Joint us for a Latin American Art celebration throughout the Bronx, showcasing panels of discussion, art exhibitions, urban installations and performances by artists from Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Spain, Guatemala, Honduras, México, Nicaragua, Panamá, Paraguay, Perú, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Uruguay and Venezuela.
Last Saturday I had the honor to participate with three of my pieces in the Art For Autism Fundraiser at El Fogon, All proceeds will go to Autism Speaks and Parents Of Autistic Children, two great organizations.
Here you see some of the people who came to support, the group of artist that donated their pieces, and on the right, the little lady that got my artwork during the fundraiser and her with the artwork already hanged up in her room.
It was an amazing experience for all of us!
