We are excited to announce that our 5th Annual Raices Gala will take place on Thursday, September 20th, 2018 at 6:00 pm at the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts & Culture. Please join us as we gather on the anniversary of Hurricane Maria in recognition of the continued relief efforts to rebuild Puerto Rico.

Each year as part of our gala, NMPRAC selects two major artists to receive their prestigious Ceiba Award, the only national award granted to Puerto Ricans for their artistic and cultural accomplishments. We will post information about the honorees in the coming weeks!

Join us as an event sponsor

The Annual Raices Gala helps to raise the necessary funds for the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts & Culture to continue to thrive as a cultural anchor in the City of Chicago as well as become the preferred destination for all those wanting to learn about our rich history, art and culture. As the only self-standing Puerto Rican museum in the United States, our vision is to collaborate with other institutions to harness the necessary resources to expand our programming, exhibits and visitor experience. If you are interested in sponsoring this event, please contact Billy Ocasio at raices@nmprac.org and visit the sponsorship guide for more information.
