AIGA Baltimore and the Society of Design Arts will host a Latino Design Histories reception at Tola's Room, an interactive Puerto Rican culture museum in Northeast Baltimore created by the Nuyorican artist Christina Delgado. Tola's Room is a cultural hub of Puerto Rican food, music, stories, and artifacts.
Enjoy Puerto Rican cuisine and learn about untold stories from the Borinquen island and its diaspora in Baltimore. Engage all of your senses during this interactive and cultural experience.
This is the first Latino Design Histories event in person, an opportunity for attendees from previous webinars, volunteers, supporters, and enthusiasts to meet and connect! Thank you to the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation for funding the 2022 Latino Design Histories season!
Tola's Room Tour
From 6:30-7:30 pm, Christina will give us a tour of the space and share a little bit about her process for creating the exhibition, a nostalgic Boricua curation from the heart and mind of a Nuyorican.
This is a private event, free of charge. Register to guarantee your spot. This is a limited-capacity event. Priority will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Street parking is limited. If you live in Baltimore City, we encourage you to consider using a ridesharing app, like Uber or Lift.
Emergency in the U.S. Territory of Puerto Rico
Hurricane Fiona slammed into the U.S. Territory of Puerto Rico on September 18th, wiping out the power grid and cutting off clean water to most of the island's residents. President Biden declared an emergency in the island, calling on both the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to coordinate disaster relief efforts for residents. If you would like to donate to trusted, community organizations, to address local emergency and long-term needs in the island, please consider this campaign by ConPRmetidos.
