Pregones Theater welcomes
PABLO MARCANO GARCIA
Luz y Color/Light & Color
March 29 thru April 2
– an exhibit of some of the most extraordinary paintings of this Master Artist… a perfect evening!… “The Red Rose” on stage and “Light & Color” in the halls of the new Pregones Theater!
Join with us the extraordinary week of theater and the visual arts. The cast of “The Red Rose”, featuring Danny Rivera, welcomes renown painter Pablo Marcano García, from Puerto Rico. Luz y Color/Light and Color opens in New York, after making its distintictive feature in Pablo Marcano Garcia’s work. It is a vision of the personal, the national, the Caribbean. And it is perfect match for the newly installed mural of New York‘s muralist Manny Vega, commissioned by Pregones for the inauguration of the theater. Marcano Garcia’s works reflect outstanding Caribbean figures like Martí, Betances, Hostos and Albizu Campos. He creates a world of color, a dramatic immersion in the environment. Flowers, urban landscapes and the disquieting lights in his night scenes, are all part of this magnificent collection.
Luz y Color/Light and Color are tools with which Maestro Marcano gives shape to a diverse and single body of work, encouraged by his love for the best in the life of his homeland, the desire to bring historical facts closer to a broad audience and a desire to fill our daily life with beauty and brightness.
