The National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture (NMPRAC), will like to invite you to be a sponsor at our 2nd Annual Gala. RAICES: A Celebration of Our Roots. The event takes place on Thursday, September 24, 2015 at 6:00pm. at our fully restored 1894 historical landmark building, 3015 W. Division. Raices is the signature fundraising event for NMPRAC.
Raices is a vibrant expression of Puerto Rican arts and culture where art will take the center stage. As such, we are very excited to reveal our latest exhibit “Metamorphosis of Divine Entanglements”, by renowned artist Oscar Luis Martinez, who has held prominent exhibitions throughout the world. The gala will also highlight cultural expressions through music, Caribbean cuisine, poetry and a one of a kind fashion show.
The Annual Raices Gala helps to raise funds needed for the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture to continue to thrive as a cultural and economic anchor to our Humboldt Park/West Town community. Our dream is for the museum to be a cultural, educational and green center for everyone in the community – grandchildren to grandparent. You were selected to be a sponsor because of your ongoing commitment to preserving cultural and arts programming in the City of Chicago.
