Part of the larger 36th Annual Museum Mile Festival, El Museo will feature outdoor art-making activities, dance, music performances, and a live performance by Legacy Women, the all-women’s traditional musical group rooted in Afro-Dominican and Afro-Puerto Rican traditions. Music by DJ Tony Touch spinning house, R&B, and Latin underground, and art-making for the entire family.
