The Children’s Museum of Manhattan (CMOM) celebrates the opening of their new installation Superheroine La Borinqueña Comes to CMOM! featuring the Puerto Rician superheroine from Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez’s graphic novel series, La Borinqueña. The installation celebrates Puerto Rico’s rich cultural heritage and raises awareness of the impact of climate change on the isle country. Miranda-Rodriguez will unveil a larger-than-life comic book illustration of the element-battling superheroine at the opening and talk to children about his character, the creative process, and the advocacy and philanthropic mission behind the series. Young visitors will create their own culturally inspired superhero identities with a cape-making craft that will give them a ‘super’ wardrobe to join the battle for a better world. Children and families will also be able to engage in other socially conscious crafts including sculpting their own endangered sea turtles (tingler) and creating postcards to send to victims of global climate change.
