Goals and Philosophy of the HAVAP 1. - We are a project for the “diffusion and encounters of Hispanic-American artists” in United States and from their own countries. A kind of “Cultural Networking” of cooperation and exchange of exhibitions and information. The project aims to not only exhibit in the United States, but also in the countries where our “cultural allies” live. To facilitate this process, small groups in the Hispanic American countries (cultural allies), were created to represent our project. When exhibit opportunities arrive, they send their representations with works of Master artists and young creators who are emerging as promises in this difficult world of art. 2.- It is not a project that seeks to discover and disseminate “art scandals” (modern manifestos that seek to create scandals rather than contributing a legacy to art). We do not intend to be “the latest Coca-Cola in the desert”. We are a group of artists from various artistic styles ranging from realism, new realism or hyper-realism, magical realism, expressionism figurative and abstract, conceptual art, video art, etc. Members engaged in modern experiments (video art, conceptual art, performance, installations,...), are very cautiously selected in such a way that they do not conflict with the works of their more conservative colleagues. 3.- Another goal of our project is to form cultural partnerships with other institutions in order to better plan artistic exchanges, collaborations, exhibitions and artists’ talks. 4.- Highlighting talented artists among our members. 5.- Apply for grants or sponsorships to conduct a biennial and triennial exhibitions among its members. 6.- Publishing books of our exhibitions and possible biennial or triennial in our group project.

The Origin of the Project: “Encounters”

In 1980, after Felix Berroa’s return to the Dominican Republic from his Printmaking and Experimental Drawing studies in San Juan, Puerto Rico, he wanted to share what he had learned with his artist friends. He taught a free workshop and with the results of their work created an exhibition in the National Palace of Fine Arts (Palacio Nacional de Bellas Artes) in Santo Domingo (See photo 3). This event and the “cultural encounters” in Cuba (1978), Puerto Rico (1979-80) and more recently in Colombia were incentives to continue cultivating friendships, cultural contacts and networks with other artists from various Hispanic countries. With time, these “encounters” motivated what is now known as the Hispanic-American Visual Artists Project. Photo 5: Poster designed and printed by Félix Berroa ( Silkscreen, 22 x 30. 1981) for the exhibition from a workshop ditacted by him in June, 1981, titled “Experimentacion Plasticas”.

Guerrero, Elena Rosario, Julio Encarnación, Juan King Mota, Hilario Olivo, José Ramón Medina, Leonida Radhamés Mejía, Segundo Marte, Gabino Rosario, Eddy García, Gilberto Valoy, Rafaela Miledy Pérez, Maritza Pérez, José A.

Photo 13: “Awakening Mind Project”. Acrylic on canvas. 48 x 48 inches. 2009. Painting inspired in the idea of the ​​ artistic group of the same name, in Marietta, Georgia. Photo 14: From left to right: The initial “Awakening Mind Project”: Corey Barsdale, Shijun Huang Munns, Félix Berroa, Marga Gabarret Debbaudt, Omaira Berroa (Felix’s wife), and José Peña. The “Awakening Mind Project” was originally envisioned by Félix Berroa to encompass three Hispanic American artists, three Americans, three African Americans, and one Asian, to make a total of ten. However, the group became inadvertently enriched with Hispanics, which led Félix Berroa to return to an old idea conceived in Puerto Rico back in the 1980 (by two ladies, a Puerto Rican a Cuban and himself), of forming a Caribbean cultural alliance encompassing Puerto Rico, Cuba, and Dominican Republic, but this time with a wider scope to include Hispanic American artists living in the USA mainland. This was how the “Hispanic American Visual Artists Project” was born.
