About the Cover The issue’s cover, Tufiño’s Mother, was created as part of the Puerto Rican Arts Alliance’s experimental painting installation of portraits that have defined the face and identity of the Puerto Rican people. Each painting represents a defining moment in the long colonial struggle faced by the Puerto Rican people. José Campeche (1751), Ramón Frade (1875), Rafael Tufiño (1922), Francisco Rodón (1934), Arnaldo Roche Rabel (1955), Jean Michel Basquiat (1960) painted the complex, and yet to be defined identity of the Puerto Rican people. Puerto Rico’s economic crisis and hurricane María’s disastrous effects created a need to come together as one nation. Lead-artists were Mara Ayala, Jorge Félix, and Jennessa Martínez along with many teen apprentices. Special thanks to PRAA’s Program Director/Curator Jorge Félix (www. and the Lawyers for the Creative Arts ( for connecting the CBA with artists in our community.
