Originated in 2005 by Sociedad Educativa de las Artes, Inc. (Teatro SEA) and its Founder/Director Manuel Morán and The Clemente resident visual artist Miguel Trelles, BORIMIX Puerto Rico Fest has become the signature Puerto Rican Heritage Month event at The Clemente. The yearly visual art exhibits that have accompanied previous festivals and continue to this day are not only a key showcase for Puerto Rican visual artists in New York but also an inclusive platform for Caribbean, Latin American and a diverse contingent of participating artists from New York and all over the world. Throughout past Borimixes guest curators have reflected on and enhanced the collaborative ethos of the visual arts component as manifested by exhibits such as BoriCuba, Borinqueya, BoriMex, BoriColombia, BoriEcuador, and BoriAyiti. Currently this unique Festival is co-produced by The Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center, and its resident Latinx theaters, Teatro SEA, and Teatro LATEA.
