They as custodians of culture

Women in charge of the main museums in Puerto Rico: Cheryl Hartup (Museo de Arte de Ponce), Marianne Ramírez (Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Puerto Rico), Flavia Marichal (Museo de Historia, Antropología y Arte de la Universidad de Puerto Rico), María Ángela López Vilella (Museo de Las Américas) and Irene Esteves Amador (Museo de la Universidad Ana G. Méndez).


Five women who serve as executive directors of important museums in Puerto Rico tell us about the realities they face to ensure that their spaces continue to be valid and relevant to the reality and needs of the country.

The panorama of museology in Puerto Rico is experiencing an interesting moment since most of the institutions are under the direction of women. We approach these five extraordinary directors who are in charge of managing part of the cultural heritage of our country.
