Teodoro Vidal became a collector in Puerto Rico after traveling all over Puerto Rico collecting artwork, furniture, toys, and much more. He collected many of the santo that can be seen in this activity guide. Mr. Vidal collected objects because he wanted to share the history and culture of Puerto Rico with other people, and recently gave some of his collection to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. His collection was used to create an exhibition entitled "A Collector's Vision of Puerto Rico". Near the end of the activity book students can learn how to collect and preserve their own collection.
