ROMPE PUESTO, was a one-night, celebratory performance event highlighting and deconstructing piñatas created by 22 NYC artists.  Participants were invited to take a swing in hopes of collecting the artistic contents inside each piñata.  ROMPE PUESTO loosely translates into "breaking ground."  In this scenario, the artists and the organizers used the cathartic act of celebration to foster new alternatives to exhibit, perform, congregate, and collaborate.
