“Traveling to Cuba?” Opening Reception

"Traveling to Cuba?" Opening ReceptionThursday, February 11, 6pm-9pm – O Cinema Wynwood, 90 NW 29th St, Miami Wynwood Arts District

Through the use of postcards, Traveling to Cuba documents the natural human communication and exchange that is increasing between people who live in the United States and Cuba. On December 17, 2014 President Obama’s order to restore diplomatic relations with Cuba encouraged more contact which greatly expanded travel opportunities for Cuba bound visitors. For the last year and a half, Garmendia has invited travelers throughout Miami to participate in this project by asking them to mail from Cuba a postcard that she designed (Cuban postage included); this can take anywhere from 3 to 18 weeks. To date, Garmendia has distributed over 1,000 postcards and has received 152 in the mail. Traveling to Cuba? by Rosa Naday Garmendia in partnership with O Cinema i on view February 11 – April 3, 2016
