A collection of art that explores two nations that share a single island.

The Art Museum of the Americas is one of the city’s hidden treasures. It may be off the beaten track, but it’s often worth a side trip if you’re visiting other downtown museums.
This weekend marks the closing of a pair of exhibitions. “On Common Ground: Dominican Republic and Haiti” features 10 emerging artists from Hispaniola, the island shared by the Dominican Republic and Haiti. The artists’ work illuminates the differences and similarities between each country’s residents.
The other show, “Un Lugar Sin Reposo/A Place With No Rest,” spotlights the work of Luis Gonzalez Palma, a Guatemalan photographer of mestizo, or mixed, background, whose work typically focuses on the indigenous and mestizo peoples of his homeland.
