She will be working at a private studio for the month of June located in the heart of the city of Santurce so she gets a feel for the art scene and local city life.

As part of the residency, Summer will be visting the studios and meeting some of our local artists and hopefully collaborating and exchanging their points of views regarding our culture, art and customs and viceversa.
