Exhibit–‘Treasures on the Terrace: Highlights from the Hispanic Society Museum & Library’

September 24–December 6. The Hispanic Society is excited to present the outdoor installation, Treasures on the Terrace: Highlights from the Hispanic Society Museum & Library. Drawing on the museum’s world-renowned collection, large-scale photographic reproductions feature 19 works from Spain, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Peru dating from the 16th through the 20th centuries. The installation also features an audio component through QR codes, narrated by community voices and offering further information about the art.

Treasures on the Terrace is made possible through the generosity of Lorenzo Family Foundation and an anonymous donor, committed to making the Hispanic Society increasingly accessible. The Hispanic Society also gratefully thanks members of the community for their active involvement in the audio component, and Boricua College for its collaboration.
