El Museo del Barrio
'Urban Martyrs and Later Day Santos'
Paintings by Rodriguez Calero
Born in Puerto Rico and raised in New York, for the past 20 years she has worked and resided in New Jersey while her career and services are active in “El Barrio” and “Lower East Side Communities”
She first studied graphics at the Institute of Culture’s School of Fine Arts with Master Printer Lorenzo Homar in Puerto Rico, and upon receiving her BFA returned to New York to continue studies at the Art Students League of New York where her main focus was in painting and collage under the tutelage of Master Artist, Leo Manso.  While at the League, she received various awards and scholarships, and was the recipient of the prestigious McDowell Traveling Scholarship where she continued her career abroad while living in Spain and France.
Ms. Calero successfully combines her knowledge of mediums, evolving them into other dimensions of quality, visual sensibility and expression, producing striking and thought provoking impressions.  Her unique signature style in painting has been called 'Acrollage'.
She has exhibited in galleries and museums across the USA, Caribbean and China, and her works are in many private and public collections.
