PRART NEWS - Vargas Gallery is proud to present our next exhibition ExplorArt: Puerto Rico. As a space committed to the growth and development of contemporary art in the USA and Latin America, we have created a new exhibition series called ExplorArt. Each year a new country will be selected to participate in an exhibition which includes members of the contemporary artscene of such place.
