Watch the WGN-TV program as Ana Belaval reports on the opening of Chicago’s National Museum Puerto Rican Arts and Culture in Humboldt Park. According to WGN-TV, the renovation of the 19th century building which used to be the Humboldt Park Stables and Receptory is finally completed, and the walls are filled with works of art.

Last Thursday night, at its gala, the museum honored two major Puerto Rican figures: multiple Tony and Grammy award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda and visual artist Antonio Martorell. Both received the Ceiba Award, which recognizes important contributions in the arts.
