Commemorative 50th Anniversary Print

In celebration of IBA’s 50th Anniversary, this limited edition commemorative piece has been  inspired by the Betances  Mural, considered one of the 50 best works of public art in Boston. This iconic mural of historical significance has long defined the identity and cultural heritage of  the Puerto Rican community of Villa Victoria. Lilli Ann K. Rosenberg’s colorful mosaics, created along with  the community, are abstracted in this piece and are imbued with the bright colors and elements that are resonant with Puerto Rico’s rich history, music, and art.

Donation: $50 + $10 shipping
