The Cuban Art Space of The Center for Cuban Studies

Cultural Center in The East Chelsea area

Add this to my venues

Cuban art is still very little known in the United States, especially that made by artists still living and working in Cuba. Our mission is to educate the U.S. public about Cuban art and culture, promote the work of Cuban artists and work toward the resumption of full educational and cultural exchanges between our two countries. Given the decades-long break in relations between Cuba and the United States, these are not easy tasks.

But we start with a distinct advantage: the Center for Cuban Studies has been sponsoring cultural exchange programs for many years and in those years has accumulated a collection of several thousand art works – paintings, drawings, sculpture, posters and prints, photographs, handmade books, and crafts. In 1991 the Center spearheaded a successful lawsuit against the U.S. Treasury Department. This made the importation and sale of original art from Cuba legal, and in 1999 the Center opened its own gallery, the Cuban Art Space.
