The stars are aligning, and the art season is heating up! There’s always a special vibe as spring starts. This year feels extra good – the spring equinox, five-planet alignment, Passover, Easter, and Ramadan magic all rolled out over the past few weeks. Given all the valid reasons to be pessimistic, I’ll welcome any bright spots!
Spring brings all sorts of reasons to be out and about: openings, fundraisers, festivals, and art fairs. Top on my list is the exhibition no existe un mundo poshuracán: Puerto Rican Art in the Wake of Hurricane Maria. Curator Marcela Guerrero is strategically retelling the story of America with her additions to the Whitney’s Latinx offerings. There are two great opportunities to catch the exhibition before it closes: a night of Puerto Rican arts and culture, presented with WNYC and Futuro Studios tomorrow April 20 (also livestreaming), and an all-free admission day on Sat, April 22.
Yours in blossoming,
