Henny Penny Piano Destruction Concert, (1967)

The first of Ortiz’s seven violent and bloody performances for the notorious “Destruction in Art Symposium,” Henny Penny shocked audiences with its brutal exploration of man’s violent nature. Ortiz later founded the celebrated El Museo del Barrio New York, a museum dedicated to Puerto Rican and Latin American art.
