2019 Spring Benefit

La Marqueta Lot 1

102 E 112th Street (middle of Park Avenue)

New York, NY 10029

It is our honor to invite you to join us for Storefront's Spring Benefit. Your generosity and vision will allow for the ongoing existence of this cultural institution that, since 1982, has been entirely dedicated to advancing work that questions the forces that shape our built environment.

Mayor LaGuardia opened the Park Avenue Retail Market under the elevated Metro North railway tracks in 1936. As East Harlem transformed into Spanish Harlem in the 1930s through 50s, the market became known as “La Marqueta." As a community space between 111th Street and 116th Street in El Barrio, the tradition of culinary, cultural, and community creativity at La Marqueta continues to thrive.

On the evening of Wednesday, May 29th, Storefront for Art and Architecture will host its 2019 Spring Benefit at La Marqueta, celebrating the complex relationships between the neighborhood cultures of New York City, Puerto Rico, and elsewhere.

The event will honor two individuals and one group whose work is closely aligned with Storefront’s founding goals. They are: Brigada Puerta de Tierra, a collective of artists and citizens of all ages from San Juan, Puerto Rico, working to reclaim and reinvigorate their neighborhood; Diana Agrest, an architect who has consistently created new ways of framing our relationships with the built and natural environments; and Jorge Pardo, an artist whose career has pushed, blurred, and eradicated the boundaries of art, architecture, and design.

For more information, see here or contact Patrick Jaojoco at benefit@storefrontnews.org or 212.431.5795.

Pledges may also be made by check or ACH transfer.


General admission tickets ($450) will be available soon.
