Arte de La Borinqueña – Women’s History Month

March 2 - October 26

The National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture is excited to announce our new collaborative exhibition, Arte de La Borinqueña, by Creator Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez, on display from March 2 – October 26, 2024.

The public opening will be on March 2, 2024, from 10 am – 2 pm and will include a “Meet and Greet” with the award-winning graphic novelist and creator of the superhero La Borinqueña, Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez, from 10:30 am – 1 pm.

Through the serialized comic medium, Miranda-Rodriguez has effectively emphasized the significance of narrating Puerto Rico’s history, addressing contemporary social and environmental issues, and celebrating the diverse Puerto Rican diaspora. La Borinqueña was launched in 2016 under Miranda-Rodriguez’s studio, Somos Arte, where he serves as Creative Director and is recognized for his philanthropic contributions. The story emerged during a critical period for the Puerto Rican people, marked by an economic crisis and natural disasters in the Caribbean. La Borinqueña has transcended fiction, evolving into a philanthropic superhero movement with a collection of graphic novels, a special benefit anthology with DC Comics titled Ricanstruction, and noteworthy partnerships with NRDC, Chocolate Cortés, and others.
