On October 4, Casita Maria Center For Arts & Education will proudly present Arte de La Borinqueña curated by Edgardo Miranda Rodriguez, writer and creator of the critically acclaimed and best-selling graphic novel La Borinqueña — a hero(ine) in a community’s time of need.

Proceeds from this exhibition will go directly towards the Hurricane Irma/Maria recovery effort in Loíza, Puerto Rico being led by the non-profit organization La Corporación Se Integra (COPI) based in Loíza, Puerto Rico.

Over 30 La Borinqueña fine art prints will be on view, each created by a different professional comic book and animation artist. Prints will be signed and numbered with printing generously donated by London-based gallery: Art You Grew Up With International. Comic-Con attendees and collectors are invited to attend and to purchase the limited prints at $200 a piece (tax, shipping and handling not included). We can all be superheroes to the people of Puerto Rico.
