Thank you to everyone at CSV for your love, help and support. It truly takes a strong and supportive team to make a successful event. Last night’s Afro-Latino Crossroads show was amazing. We filled the house and shook the roof with the music and energy!!! I want to especially thank CSV for the smooth transition from curatorial proposal to live event.

Thank you so much for taking the time to show us around the wonderful Clemente Soto Velez Center. I was very impressed and inspired by your enthusiasm for and devotion to the building’s heritage and its importance for the local and international community. Thanks for all your hard work!
You don’t know how my heart leaped when I passed by the center and saw the scaffolding GONE! It’s so beautiful! Seeing it restored is a magnificent experience! I’m so proud of all that has been accomplished…Thank you for ALL your contributions and hard work. I can’t get the picture of the New Center out of my mind..Thanks again!
