Join our fundraising campaign for our Arts Center in the Santurce Arts District!
We have acquired this building at 1673 Ave. Ponce de Leon as our permanent home for MUSAN Arts Center.
During the past year of renovation, our concept has evolved to include an Arts Incubator, Galleries and Museum.
We are completing structural changes to the building in October 2021 and installed temporary fixtures/displays for a 'soft opening' and local artist's marketplace as we continue furnishing/fixture installation.
Starting in November 2021 we will host a series of receptions for supporters to see our progress and raise funds to complete the project. With your support, we can complete everything in the first quarter 2022 for a formal opening in Spring 2022.
