The visual arts in Puerto Rico have a rich history of social engagement as well as connections to graphic arts movements throughout Latin America and the globe. The island’s current dynamic urban art scene has garnered attention from art critics, magazines and newspapers because of its quality and scope. From complex graffiti to sophisticated murals on a range of themes, painted walls produced by local as well as international artists can be found throughout the cities and towns of the island. Some of these murals are the result of urban art festivals, such as Santurce es Ley. The photographs in this exhibition, taken between 2013 and 2016, begin to document this phenomenon, centered around the Santurce district of the city of San Juan but also include work from other towns. The Arte Urbano exhibit at Taller Boricua is composed of 45 archival-pigmented selected prints.

This exhibit is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the office of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. It is also supported in part by public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council, Consejo Grafico and the Puerto Rican Workshop Inc.
