Nueva York (1613–1945)

Sep 17 2010 - Jan 9 2011

El Museo del Barrio, 1230 Fifth Avenue at 104th Street
September 17, 2010–January 9, 2011
(Reception on September 16, 2010)
Organized by the New-York Historical Society and el Museo del Barrio

Nueva York is an exhibition and education project on the history of Latinos in New York from 1624 through World War II. Modeled on the New-York Historical Society’s two-year initiative on slavery in New York, the project will tell the little-known story of how Spanish-speaking people and the Spanish-speaking world came to play a critical role in the City’s prosperity. The project will also advance understanding of the City of New York’s continuing demographic transition. Nueva York entails a multi-media exhibition, a catalogue featuring new scholarship, public programs and education materials for K–12 teachers. Click here to view the online exhibition.

Joaquín Torres-García (Uruguay, 1874–1949), New York Docks, 1920. Oil and gouache on cardboard. Yale University Art Gallery, Gift of Collection Société Anonyme.
