Repeating Islands

A guide by Kathleen Squires for New York Magazine.

From the time of Taino Indian cave drawings, art has been ingrained into the island of Puerto Rico. The vast collection at the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico offers a wonderful overview of the evolution of island art, while the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Puerto Ricoholds a peerless collection of modern Caribbean works. And art lovers everywhere are looking forward to the second MECA International Art Fair, which focuses on Caribbean artists, being held in San Juan this November. But art is everywhere — with murals adorning buildings, sculptures gracing parks, and even a colorful mosaic of former governor Luis Muñoz Marin greeting visitors at the airport. Here, locals share their favorite places to take in all the beauty, whether in conventional galleries or on the street.

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!

  1. Thanks for sharing! What great memories it brings. I love the arts. Some of these I remember. Some of these areas appear to have been revitalized by the artist community. Its been about 20 years since I was there last. I dont think I could find my way around. I wrote a post a few weeks ago about where my favorite writing spot would be it was there a loft in Old San Juan next to La Mallorca. I hope they can get the rest of the island ready for hurricane season. All the best
