From The Boston Globe today:

Haverhill resident Graciela Trilla won the Buttonwoods Museum’s annual “Curate your own Exhibit” competition. Trilla’s winning exhibit features her family’s collection of art by Puerto Rican artists from the 1950s. The bilingual exhibit titled “La Generación de los Cincuentas,” which translates to “The Generation of the ‘50s,” features 26 pieces created in a variety of mediums including drawing, painting, posters, and traditional Puerto Rican mundillo textiles. Additionally, the exhibit will feature a mundillo wheel — used for making traditional bobbin lace — on loan from Puerto Rico’s Museo de Mundillo. Buttonwoods, located at 240 Water St. in Haverhill, is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays, 12 to 5 p.m. Admission is $7 for adults, $5 for senior citizens, $3 for children, and children under 5 free. The exhibit, which also will include ceramic pieces by Puerto Rican artist Atlas Moon Rodriguez Decker, will run Sept. 8 through Oct. 30. A reception is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 12 from 1 to 4 p.m. For more information, email
