Museo de Arte de Ponce moves its MAP Store to Plaza Del Caribe

Ponce, Puerto Rico– The Museo de Arte de Ponce announced the opening of a kiosk of its MAP Store in the Plaza Del Caribe shopping center, in Ponce. The new space that the Museum occupies is located on the first level, Macy’s hall, and operates at the mall hours. It is important to highlight that the main store, located in the Museum’s facilities, is temporarily closed due to the seismic activity that affects the region and the emergency recovery process carried out by the institution due to the impact of the earthquake that occurred last January 7th.

“We are very happy with the opportunity that Plaza Del Caribe offers us. We invite you to visit us and choose your favorite item from a variety of local crafts, decorative objects for home and office, allusive merchandise to the Museum and other unique items, which we carefully select for our clients, ”said Adiana Ortiz, Manager from the MAP Store.

The MAP Store of Plaza Del Caribe joins the initiatives that it maintains, at the Ponce Museum of Art, very active in the community despite the temporary closure of its facilities. “We continue to create alliances and develop projects that allow us to continue offering services to the public. The MAP Store, in Plaza Del Caribe, is another great achievement that fills us with joy. I am sure we will be sponsored by the public. Each purchase is a contribution to preserve our Museum, which is the heritage of Ponce and all Puerto Ricans. We are waiting for you all ”, reiterated Alejandra Peña Gutiérrez, executive director of the Museum.

The institution has also created the program “The Museum goes out” to bring art workshops to communities affected by earthquakes that affect the southwest of the island. The program has been very well received and has already impacted hundreds of people in shelters in the region. The institution also operates a collection center for toiletries, in its facilities. The Center receives donations from the community from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. at 5:00 p.m. by the later access of the Museum, Perpetuo Socorro street, Urb. Santa María.
