El Cerro | 2002-

A collaborative work since 2002 with the inhabitants of El Cerro, a community in Naranjito, Puerto Rico. The project consists in painting their houses different shades of green paying a homage to the way the community has been built respecting harmoniously its surroundings and the topography of the mountains where it stands. The project quotes modernist abstract painting and superimposes this on to inhabited buildings. Through negotiation and the collaboration with Prof. Luisa Seijo-Maldonado, volunteers, students and the community, over 100 buildings have been painted over the years. The project also includes workshops for people of all ages in different subjects, ranging from art to law. In addition, other artists’ projects have been developed in the community, like for example, the temporal creation of the Cerro Museum by Pablo León de la Barra in a abandoned building that now is the community center.”-x

"Race matters. Race matters in part because of the long history of racial minorities’ being denied access to the political process.

Race matters to a young man’s view of society when he spends his teenage years watching others tense up as he passes, no matter what neighborhood he grew up. Race matters to a young woman’s sense of self when she states her hometown, and then is pressed, ‘No, where are you really from?’

The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to speak openly and candidly on the subject of race, and to apply the Constitution with eyes open to the unfortunate effects of centuries of racial discrimination."
