New Art in the Senator Serrano's District Office in East Harlem

We have more great art in the district office this month! Please come by and take a look. The beautiful paintings were created by Magda Luccioni, and hang throughout Senator Serrano's office. Magda was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico, a city that was central to the development of bomba and plena. These traditional Puerto Rican art forms are prominent themes in Magda's work. She is a self taught artist who views art as an important form of spiritual release. "I will paint till the day I die." says Magda.

The gallery is curated by community member Taina Traverso.
