Hi-ARTS Presents Martha Cooper’s NYCasitas Exhibit
March 24, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - May 15, 2016 @ 6:00 pm
Photographer Martha Cooper’s seldom seen 1980’s images of casitas – small peasant style homes in Puerto Rico that were recreated on vacant lots throughout Spanish Harlem, the Bronx, Brooklyn and the Lower East side. Her photos capture the resilient Puerto Rican communities that built these casitas and gardens for birthdays, cookouts, social gatherings and much more.
