AMEN DE MARIPOSAS: A distinctive selection of 11 canvases in the evolving Caribbean Pop and Post-Graffiti styles of painter German Perez, this exhibit is titled after a poem by the great Pedro Mir, a powerful retelling of the story of the Mirabal Sisters of the Dominican Republic. Vocally opposed to the dictatorship of Rafael Leónidas Trujillo, three of the four sisters were assassinated on 25 November 1960 and are today remembered as symbols of popular and feminist resistance. The dynamic images on view are realized through digital mixed media. June 3rd opening is part of Free First Wednesdays Bronx Culture Trolley of Bronx Council on the Arts.
