You may have seen flyers around campus advertising "Si Cuba!" According to the Stone Center website, it is "a major citywide presentation of arts, music, and culture related to Cuba" that will take place from January through the spring of 2010. Our own Newcomb Art Gallery is participating in the collaboration by hosting Polaridad Complementaria: Recent Works from Cuba. I have not yet seen the exhibition, but it will be right on campus until March 4.
This is a great opportunity to take advantage of the University's resources, expand on what we are learning in class and experience a citywide event. If you'd like to be adventuresome and explore off campus, there are events being hosted throughout the city including more exhibitions at the New Orleans Museum of Art. Go to the event's website for more information.
