"Feeling Cuba"

Sunday, 1 p.m. - The show features a mix of paintings, cut-drawings, photography, collage and mixed media by Cuban artists. For most of us, Curator and Gallery Director Nadesha Mijoba says, Cuba remains an enigma, a country hidden from view, while a treasure in our midst. “Never has any man seen such a beautiful place,” Christopher Columbus wrote in his Oct. 28, 1492, ship’s log. Yet despite his visual epiphany and that of others exploring the West Indies in the 15th century, Cuba – the largest island in the Caribbean Sea – remains concealed from our view. Why is this? Twentieth century political policies? Or is it the paradox of being so close to the United States but so far from familiar social and cultural norms? Join as people are brought closer to the life of Cuba, to feel the presence of this geographically intimate neighbor and to explore the richness of this great island and its people. Visit provenancecenter.com and lnva.us or call 860-405-5887 for more information.
