    Puerto Rican Posters

    Press Releases ?
    • Summer approximately 1952: An exhibition of posters from Puerto Rico will be held in the Art School gallery of the Brooklyn Museum from June 18 thru July 9.

      Designed and executed by native Puerto Ricon artists under the direction of Irene Delano and Lorenzo Homar (a former student of the Brooklyn Museum Art School) the posters are distributed to the rural areas of Puerto Rico by the Division of Community Education.

      Reproduced by the silk screen method after original drawings by Diaz, Hernandez, Figueroa, Palacios, Tufino, Rosado del Valle and others, the posters graphically reflect the varied problems of rural education and depict the struggles and aspirations of the people of Puerto Rico.

      A notable feature of the exhibition is the original color design for EL PUENTE (The Bridge) a poster which will be printed as soon as the exhibition is returned to Puerto Rico.

      The exhibition is open daily and Saturday from 10 to 5 P.M. and Holidays and Sunday from 1 to 5 P.M.

    "Hi, I am trying to find the name of the artist who took and is in the photograph that follows- http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/exhibitions/664/Global_Feminisms_Remix/image/216/Global_Feminisms_Remix._%7C08032007_-_03032008%7C._Installation_view. I believe the artist takes pictures of herself dressed as a man but then exposes her femaleness, as in the photo of her dressed as an Ascetic Jew exposing her breast. Can you help me find her information? Thanks in advance- Aimee Record"

    Prints, Drawings and Photographs

    Over the years, the collections of the Brooklyn Museum have been organized and reorganized in different ways. Collections of the former Department of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs include works on paper that may fall into other categories: American Art, European Art, Asian Art, Contemporary Art, and Photography.
    The Brooklyn Museum Archives maintains a collection of historical press releases. Many of these have been scanned and made available on our Web site. The releases range from brief announcements to extensive articles; images of the original releases have been included for your reference. Please note that all the original typographical elements, including occasional errors, have been retained. Releases may also contain errors as a result of the scanning process. We welcome your feedback about corrections.
    For select exhibitions, we have made available some or all of the informative text panels written by the curator or organizer. Called "didactics," these panels are presented to the public during the exhibition's run, and we reproduce them here for your reference and archival interest. Please note that any illustrations on the original didactics have not been retained, and that the text may contain errors as a result of the scanning process. We welcome your feedback about corrections.
    For select exhibitions, we have made available some or all of the objects from the Brooklyn Museum collection that were in the installation. These objects are listed here for your reference and archival interest, but the list may be incomplete and does not contain objects owned by other institutions or lenders.
