Christina Delgado is a Baltimore based photographer, designer, and curator. Her work revolves around a sense of self and identity as a Nuyorican born and raised in New York City who migrated to Baltimore as a young adult. Delgado’s work displays a passion and pride for identity in family and homeplace. It connects ways in which home, place, and family can be sights of pain & trauma but ultimately sights of healing, freedom, and self-love.
Christina Delgado became a photographer and an artist later in life. Her experience started as a hobby, then became a profession and her reason for wanting to become a teacher early in her career. She has been an educator, artist, and culture worker for well over 17 years. She is the founder and owner of Tola’s Room, an immersive Puerto Rican home museum and culture space located in Northeast Baltimore. Tola’s Room named after her daughter, Omotola serves, as the only Puerto Rican culture hub in Baltimore City. She is currently on the Maryland State Arts Council Artist-in-Resident Roster and works with Arts for Learning Maryland as an arts equity advisor, creativity mentor, and teaching artist.
