Established in 1974, Taller Puertorriqueno seeks to promote and enrich the Puerto Rican artistic culture and heritage throughout the community. Taller Puertorriqueno has a multi faceted function, a gallery that presents Latino artwork, a bookstore that deals in literature from the Latino community, and the day care facility. Taller also supports music shows that draw international touring troupes.
Taller is a wonderful spot in the heart of the barrio at 5th and Lehigh. This art and community center offers art exhibits, performances, lectures, and a great book and gift store where you can purchase authentic Latino crafts and books (fiction and non fiction, in Spanish and English) that are hard or impossible to find anywhere else in the city.
Changing exhibits on the second floor gallery are small but of high quality and showcase both local Latino artists as well as well-known artists from Puerto Rico and elsewhere in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Small but jam packed, Taller is the real deal.
