You are invited to a pop up art show by CreateWell grantee Nayda Cuevas, "It Wasn't Our Choice: Untold Histories Between Puerto Rico and the United States." 

"As a child growing up, Nayda Cuevas only knew of a beautiful Puerto Rico... She knew nothing of the dark history of the relationship between the United States and the island. Nor did she know that when, as an adult, she began looking into the tragic effects of that history on her very own family, she would be warned more than once to be careful who she spoke with and what use she made of the information she discovered... 'It Wasn’t Our Choice: The Untold Histories Between Puerto Rico and the United States' ...introduces us to this period in PR and US relations through her narrative and artwork, which bring alive the actual players in the drama that occurred during Puerto Rico’s Nationalist movement in the 1930s and 1940s."

This pop up art show will encourage conversation about the creative process and journey that Nayda Cuevas took to uncover her family’s history. The artistic result is her response to the historical findings.
