Photo-ish of the Week: El Barrio

Photo of the Week

Torres-Garcia_Joaquin#167DA.JPGIt’s more painting than photography this week, but it’s so beautiful (and depicts a 1920s view of New York’s 14th street), that we couldn’t resist. The painting is part of Nexus New York: Latin/American Artists in the Modern Metropolis on view at El Museo del Barrio in East Harlem.

El Museo hosted the New York City election’s first mayoral showdown Tuesday night, and also celebrates its 40th anniversary/reopening since renovation this Saturday.
