Hispanic Heritage Week is the first week of October, and this year NY1 featured an article titled “Hispanic Heritage Week: MoMA Helps Preserve Latin American Collections Across City,” on the Survey of Archives of Latino and Latin American Art at The Museum Modern Art.

The Brooklyn Museum Libraries have recently acquired over 160 books concerning Mexican, Haitian, and Spanish Colonial Folk Art, 92 of which are unique to NYARC libraries’ holdings and over a dozen that are not in WorldCat at all. This exciting gift comes to us through the generosity of Margery Nathanson, proprietor of the Grass Roots Gallery de Artes Populares, which was in operation from 1980 to 1990.
