“Liberty“ Cuban Art Opening 

July 1 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Arts Council presents “Liberty” Cuban Art exhibit to open at the Gato Building Thursday, July 1st
The Florida Keys Council of the Arts is proud to announce the upcoming art exhibit: “Liberty, in the Shadow of Silence”, an exhibition of contemporary Cuban Art, curated by Alaen Ledesma Fernandez. Opening night is Thursday, July 1st from 5:30 till 7:30 pm at the Historic Gato Building. This collective exhibition represents the artwork of more than 50 prominent Cuban artists.
This presents a unique opportunity for both the artists and the audience, in that the Gato Building itself is steeped in Cuban Heritage. Jose Marti gave a historic presentation during his first visit to Key West in 1891, and the building was originally a Cuban Cigar Factory.  The new exhibition: “Liberty, in the Shadow of Silence” functions as a sort of restart, a new opening for the exhibition of Cuban artists in the United States.
The exhibit is part of the Arts Council’s Art in Public Buildings program, designed to offer an opportunity for artists to exhibit their work beyond a traditional gallery space and enhance the environment of those who work and visit the Gato Building. The show will continue through October 1st, and the Gato Building is open Monday through Friday, from 9:00 am to 5:00 p.m. Closed Saturdays and Sundays. Free Parking is available, both the building and show are ADA accessible.
This exhibit was sponsored in part by the Florida Keys Council of the Arts, the State of Florida: Division of Cultural Affairs, as well as other supporters. Additional support comes from donations by show visitors. For more information, please call the Arts Council at 305-295-4369 or email info@keysarts.com
