EL MUSEO DEL BARRIO'S ANNUAL GALA AT PLAZA HOTEL

Jean Shafiroff



El Museo del Barrio held its Annual Gala at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. Approximately 500 guests attended the black tie Gala where most of the woman wore black and white gowns, veils and gloves. Funds raised will go to support Latino art and culture at the El Museo del Barrio Museum in New York City at 1230 5th Avenue (105th Strret and Fifth Avenue). 


 ABOUT EL MUSEO



El Museo was founded 45 years ago by artist and educator Raphael Montañez Ortiz and a coalition of parents, educators, artists, and activists who noted that mainstream museums largely ignored Latino artists. Since its inception, El Museo has been committed to celebrating and promoting Latino culture, thus becoming a cornerstone of El Barrio, and a valuable resource for New York City. El Museo’s varied permanent collection of over 6,500 objects, spans more than 800 years of Latin American, Caribbean, and Latino art, includes pre-Columbian Taíno artifacts, traditional arts, twentieth-century drawings, paintings, sculptures and installations, as well as prints, photography, documentary films, and video.
