From Cate McQuaid in the Boston Globe:
Feeling the heat and light - Exhibit details the rich history of merengueMore from the Globe article
"¡Merengue!" paints a vivid social history of a music that has fueled passion; it also charts a bit of art history, from the storytelling strains of the 1930s through modernism and the more subversive elements of contemporary art.
For info on the Museum of the National Center of Afro-American Artists which is showing the exhibit, as well as an example of the art, see the museum's web site.
