OUR MISSION

On Wednesday, September 20, Hurricane Maria, an extremely powerful Category 4 hurricane with 150+ mph winds, made direct landfall on Puerto Rico, leaving the entire island in disaster. What has happened since has been truly catastrophic for the island. Puerto Rico has not only been devastated by the aftermath of Hurricane Maria but also by the swarm of earthquakes since December 28, 2019, including six that were of magnitude 5 or higher. The largest and most damaging occurred on January 7th 2020 with a magnitude of 6.4, thus, our island and people are in a state of immediate need. In response, Arte Al Rescate is bringing together global fine artists with their generously donated works of art to be sold in the benefit of relief for hurricane and earthquake victims in Puerto Rico. Your efforts, sponsorship and donations of artwork is incredibly appreciated by the people of Puerto Rico and by the Arte al Rescate team.

Arte al Rescate Special Fundraiser

 

Cuca from Galeria Cuca is a beloved and cherished Chicago artist who has engraved herself as an Afro Caribbean artist in the Humboldt Park community and beyond. Cuca’s art pays homage to the spirit, culture, and diversity of her beautiful people from the Caribbean. Using various art mediums, Cuca’s art has always represented ’Cultura’ at its most colorful form. Cuca is an art pioneer at some many levels, helping pave the way for many artists that followed in Humboldt Park and Chicagoland for over 25 years! Self-taught, Cuca has left her mark in the growth and exposure of Latino art influence in the Chicago area. Cuca is currently in a medical and financial crisis. In December 2020, Cuca was diagnosed with a large brain tumor and was operated on. During surgery, complications arose.  Due to the complicated nature of her tumor, Cuca also suffered a stroke.  After four weeks in ICU, Cuca was transferred to a nursing home for rehab. Most recently, Cuca’s treatment therapies have abruptly come to a halt. The facility is no longer offering Cuca treatments due to lack of sufficient medical coverage by her insurance.  Huge efforts are being made to find Cuca a more appropriate, acute care facility to address her medical needs, and to raise funds to help facilitate her desperately needed therapies and exorbitant out of pocket expenses for such treatments. Help make a difference!  Cuca is passionate about her community and committed to the empowerment of our people.  Within the 25 years, she has actively and consistently participated by contributing to various community causes with art donations. Help make a difference in this so important cause! Let’s reciprocate that spirit of generosity. 100% of all the proceeds raised from art sales on this site will go directly to Cuca to help with such expenses."
