cuban Forever

September 07 - June 21, 2014

Cuban Forever features the diverse, rich, beautiful and compelling contemporary art of Cuba. Ron Pizzuti is fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel to Havana, where he met with artists in their studios, visited the museums and experienced the Cuban art world. Like most, he is taken with the natural beauty of the island and the historic charm of the city.

The artists draw on a wide variety of styles influenced by ancestral roots that reach back to Western Europe, Africa and Asia. These influences, along with a rigorous education, combine to create a point of view that is individual and distinctive. While politics are unavoidable in Cuba, they are not the only focus. History is reexamined, untold stories are illuminated, and complex and challenging issues revealed.
