June 18, 2022: I ❤ PR Passion

Tola's Room serves as a collective of the arts, community, and education. Last year we embarked on our first solo project—an interactive culture museum concept, entitled Puerto Rican Passion. The goal for this project was to pay homage to the Puerto Rican-Nuyorican cultural experience and history by curating a fully immersive space, with the hopes to influence and inspire others to share their own cultural story. This June marks one year since our first project and what better way to celebrate than with a party! I ❤ PR Passion is our anniversary celebration & fundraiser. Our goal is to continue our dream of being a collective space dedicated to the arts, community, and education, while also serving as the only Puerto Rican cultural hub in Baltimore City. Enjoy a day filled with culture and passion, to include the unveiling of our third level, new exhibits, featured treats from The Empanada Lady, and so much more!
