First Friday June: Arte Cubano

Join M-AAA for the Premiere and Tour Launch of Arte Cubano from ExhibitsUSA

M-AAA is pleased to present an exhibition preview of Arte Cubano, an ExhibitsUSA touring exhibition, for First Friday June 1 from 6:00–8:00 p.m. at 2018 Baltimore in Kansas City’s Crossroads Arts District.

Arte Cubano highlights a universally agreed-upon characteristic of the island’s art: an incredible diversity. Cuban art is so rich in large part because of its diverse cultural blend of African, European, and Latin/Caribbean influences. Add to these traditional roots the revolution of 1959, and Cuban art occupies a unique aesthetic place in the contemporary art world.

Our exhibition preview will feature a selection of artworks in our Culture Lab Gallery and downstairs convening space. Arte Cubano will only be on view for First Friday June 1 from 6:00–8:00 p.m. It begins its full tour in August at Southeast Missouri State University
