The Museum of Fine Arts takes great pride in hosting a major exhibition of works by Cuban artists selected by Guest Curator Segundo Fernandez. Proceeding from works of historical artists to significant artists of today, the exhibition provides a unique cultural experience celebrating Cuban landscape, history, mythos and a rich and varied aesthetic that is as individual as each artist. Over one hundred works from Private Collections in Florida have been organized and assembled through the generosity of Director Ramon Cernuda and his staff at Cernuda Arte for exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts.
