El Balcón and El Balcón Fronterizo

Across Europe and around the world, as the COVID-19 outbreak confines people to their homes and apartments, individuals began to gather spontaneously and collectively on their balconies and outdoor spaces - to applaud medical staff working on the frontline against the virus, greet their neighbors, perform music, take part in spontaneous flash mobs, or just make the most of the sunshine. In that spirit the Rubin Center for the Visual Arts presents El Balcón a virtual exhibition by a community of contemporary artists and friends from around the globe, with a special selection of voices from our border region, El Balcón Fronterizo. CLICK HERE for more information.
