Created in 1982 by Bronx-born, Nuyorican artist Manny Vega, the poster depicts a happy crowd watching the parade, complete with animals and the larger-than-life puppets of Melchior, Gaspar, and Baltasar, whose African heritage reflects Vega’s own interest in African diasporic spirituality.
You can also enjoy works, notably, murals, by Manny Vega found throughout El Barrio.
