While Cuba certainly has its challenges (I was fortunate enough to spend a week in Havana visiting amazingly resilient artists), even with its impoverishment, there is a tremendous amount of artistic activity. That range of talent is encapsulated in "Living In Havana", a talented five artist exhibition at Chelsea's Marlboro gallery through June 18th.
We were especially moved by Kcho's work, that revolved around the provocative theme of desperate migration. Guests of the Marlboro gallery celebrated the exhibition with mojitos and dinner at Havana Central.
