“When I am no longer present, may my efforts and my work be a cry standing the test of time, heard by others, instilling in them a sense of creation and liberty: that will be my legacy!”
-Heriberto Nieves, Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, France, 1998.

This strategic alliance allows us to launch artistic residencies at the museum's emblematic headquarters in Madrid and Cuenca, thus providing extraordinary platforms for the growth and exhibition of our emerging artists in a context of cultural relevance.

We are proud to introduce the Puerto Rican artists selected for this transformative adventure:

🟡 Marcos Daniel Vicéns @palma_verde, a visual narrator whose work encapsulates the identity of the Puerto Rican people.

🟡 Miguel Ángel Feba @miguelfeba, whose creativity transcends the conventional limits of art.

These talented individuals will not only bring their art from Puerto Rico to the historic headquarters of the Neomudéjar Museum, but they will also become ambassadors of our rich cultural heritage.
