I had the distinct pleasure of being present for the inauguration of the CUNY Dominican Studies Institute’s Art Gallery, the only exhibit space in New York City devoted to works of art by and about people of Dominican descent, on Friday, October 15th in the Dominican Studies Institute Archives and Library on the campus of The City College of New York. The debut show, “Manifestaciones,” is a print portfolio of 12 never-before-seen pieces by Dominican York Proyecto GRAFICA, a print collective and collaborative project of Dominican artists who work and live in and around New York City. The exhibit is co-sponsored by the CCNY Art Department. It runs through December 21, so make sure you stop by and check out this incredible exhibit. Gallery hours will vary during the year and will be posted at www1.ccny.cuny.edu/ci/dsi/.
