As a performance space for new and unknown artists, and for those often under-represented in mainstream culture, the Nuyorican Poets Café has become an acclaimed forum for innovative poetry, music, hip hop, video, visual arts, comedy and theater. R+L has just been selected, through NYC's Design Excellence Program, to design the organization's East Village expansion project including new street identity, two theaters, rehearsal & educational spaces and integrated bar/cafe zones.
