The Gallery Space at NYU Wagner presents "FolkLorican" with Nov. 17 opening reception

November 5, 2010

With "FolkloRican," renowned multi-media artist Pepe Villegas presents a 10-piece collection of oil paintings that delve into an intriguing archive of personal and cultural memories referencing his Puerto Rican upbringing. Ranging from striking representational and semi-representational portraiture to abstract and symbolism-rich canvases,t his highly evocative and criollista sampling is deeply rooted in cultural pride, introspective contemplation, and national nostalgia.

"FolkloRican" commemorates Latino Heritage Month at New York University and is co-presented by NYU Wagner, the Latino Studies Program, the Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies, and NYU Steinhardt.
