Although the contemporary artists are each from different generations, they all share the experience of being raised in an isolated socialist country. Despite the wide range of style, backgrounds, subject matter and materials, “there is something uniquely Cuban about the art in this collection,” according to a Las Cruces Museum of Art news release.
The collection was organized by the Mid-America Arts Alliance/ExhibitsUSA and the Center for Cuban Studies.
