From May 14-18, 2015, CDA traveled to Havana with an art-focused delegation inspired by the memory of CDA’s beloved friend Stephen M. Rivers. The delegation met with Cuban architect Miguel Coyula and Reuters reporter Marc Frank for an introduction to Cuba before delving into Havana’s art scene. Visits to the Taller de Grafica, Lizt Alfonso Academy, and the National Museum of Art helped showcased the diversity of Cuba’s art. The delegation also traveled to Regla, Cuba’s Afro-Cuban neighborhood, to hear from the musical duo Obsesión before visiting the art studios of Arles del Rio, Douglas Perez, and Esterio Segura.
