Exhibit showcases Puerto Rican artists’ reaction to Hurricane Maria and its aftermath

A response from artists to Hurricane Maria and its aftermath is billed as the first major U.S. Museum exhibition of Puerto Rican art in nearly 50 years. The 2017 disaster inspired some 50 works by 20 Puerto Rican artists based on the island and elsewhere. Jeffrey Brown visited New York’s Whitney Museum for our arts and culture series, CANVAS.
