Caribbean: Crossroads of The World

        We Dream in Blue by Arnaldo Roche Rabell 1986      
The exhibit Caribbean: Crossroads of The World at El Museo Del Barrio can be enjoyed for free on Super Sabado! a day of programing at the museum sponsored by Target, on the third Saturday of every month.  It is truly a value packed day at the museum. Along with this exhibition, your children can participate in making art and enjoy a musical performance.  Our recent visit to the museum included viewing a performance of Haitian Folk music performed by the band KONGO.   The beats were infectious as toddlers and teens boogied in front of the stage.   The exhibit itself covered a lot of ground with images from the early 1900's to the present.   Your older children's focus will last longer when walking through the galleries , but the total experience is perfect for all. This exhibit is on thru January 6, 2013
