Sept. 11, 2018 HARRISBURG – Mayor Papenfuse will join Latino community leaders at the MLK Government Center, 10 N. Second St., at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2018, to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at a reception to open the exhibition of a Puerto Rican painter who is  moving to Harrisburg.


Raul Cruz, an acclaimed artist, has decided to move to Harrisburg as conditions remain dire in his native Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria last year. Cruz is being welcomed by family members who are residents of the City.


The event is being sponsored the Art Association of Harrisburg, the Latino Hispanic Community Center and the World Affairs Council of Harrisburg.


Cruz’s painting will be on display throughout the month at the MLK Government Center.
