WHEN: January 6th -20th, 2012. Opening reception Thursday, January 12th from 6-8pm
WHERE: The Cuban Art Space of the Center for Cuban Studies
Cuban Art Space
The space opened in 1999 as a gallery of regularly scheduled exhibits and cultural programs. In 1991, the Center spearheaded a successful lawsuit against the U.S. Treasury Department. The decision in this lawsuit legalized the importation and sale of original Cuban art. Once the Center’s Art Space opened, it began to exhibit at first its own collection and over the years has continued to bring in the works of Cuban artists.
Cuba contains priceless survivals of African cultures - Yoruba, Congo, Old Dahomey, and the Efik/Efo from the Cross River Delta (Nigeria), giving birth to Abakwa and Brikamo. In addition, Cuba hosts a number of communities from the diaspora, especially the Caribbean -- Jamaica, the Bahamas, and other English speaking islands as well as Haiti. Our aim is to help you do that by putting up as much material as we can. See our Table of Contents to access such major categories as Music, Author & Teachers on AfroCuban culture, Organizations that teach courses and workshops or are involved in the promotion of the African cultures of Cuba, as well as a number of other categories.
Dear Center Friends,
We're sending you the attached in the mail if you're a member or a
regular contributor, but doing mailings can take awhile, and this way
you'll be able to read the attached information right now! Of course, I
ask you for a contribution -- but just as important, I am enclosing a
list of our upcoming trips and especially our 40th Anniversary Trip to
Cuba in April-May 2012. I hope you'll sign up: it promises to be a very
special experience, like no other trip to Cuba you've ever taken. And
please take note of the free gifts we are getting ready to send you for
your contributions, too.
This is an annual ritual, and I know that many of you, like us, are
hurting because of the economy. But I also know that you have been
incredibly generous with us through the years and that you will
contribute what you can. All of us at the Center thank you in advance
for sending us whatever you can.
May the New Year be better -- and let's fight to make our voices
heard in the 2012 election season. Let's put US-Cuba relations on the
