Borimix Festival featuring Puerto Rican artist Joseph A. Burgos, Jr.

The Society of the Educational Arts, Inc. (SEA) is co-sponsoring the Borimix Festival ’09 with a visual arts exhibit opening Thursday, Nov. 5 at 7pm at the galleries of the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural & Educational Center. SEA is a bilingual arts-in-education organization and Latino theater company based in New York City dedicated to the empowerment and educational advancement of children and young adults.

This year SEA is proudly dedicating the festival, and most specifically the art exhibition, to Clemente Soto Vélez, a Puerto Rican activist, poet, and journalist who mentored many generations of artists in Puerto Rico and NYC.

Among the showcased talent at the Nov. 6 exhibition is Puerto Rican artist Joseph A. Burgos, Jr., the nephew of legendary Puerto Rican poet Julia de Burgos. Joseph’s art was most recently displayed at Princeton University.

The art exhibit, curated by Miguel Trelles with Luis Carle and Luis Stephenberg, runs from Nov. 6 to Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2009. Admission is FREE. For more information call SEA at 212-529-1545.
