Maja Ruznic's "Messengers" at the Universitiy of Puerto Rico (Rio Piedras Campus)

Yesterday, August 30th TPP visited the University of Puerto Rico Rio Piedras Campus as we usually do to exhibit Maja Ruznic's individual exhibition titled "Messengers". TPP took the opportunity of having this unscheduled stop to support the visit of one of Puerto Rico's leading and most important puertorican contemporay artists Jose Lerma (

Lerma spoke to a room packed of students about his career and works as well as the art scene and in general. The lecture was organized on short term notice by professor Nathan Budoff and school director Fernando Paes. Afterwards all the students as well as professors were invited to see Maja's show.

This is a great example of thing all art schools should be doing on a regular basis so local and international artists can talk to students about their experiences and careers.
