“La Otra Cuba” Art Exhibition & Block Party

“La Otra Cuba” Art Exhibition & Block PartySaturday, December 17, 7pm-11pm – Share Art Pop-Up at Antiques & Design Mall Miami, 8650 Biscayne Blv, Miami

Be one of the first to see the unveiling of gay Cuban artistry at the La Otra Cuba Art Exhibition, followed by a festive block party bash. The Coming Out Cuba Foundation (COC), a nonprofit organization that works to reveal the gay pre-revolutionary Cuban culture and help to build a new one, introduces their first ever “La Otra Cuba” Art Exhibition.

This groundbreaking exhibit, hosted by COC Ambassador Athena Dion, takes you into the world of Cuba’s gay community both past and present, a part of the island’s artistic history, from art to literature to music, that has been greatly overlooked until now. COC is on a continual mission to collect, preserve and present Cuba’s rich gay history with their new heritage program, La Otra Cuba, led by Program Director Rich Denis.

Enjoy light bites by Pinch Kitchen as the celebration kicks off with the unveiling of COC’s La Otra Cuba Art Exhibition housed at the innovative and colorful #ShareArtPopUp gallery. Airbrush Hero by Avi Ram from the television show Skin Wars will perform his impressive body airbrushing camouflage (Cuban inspired) LIVE. As the evening progresses, the celebration will take to the Biscayne Blvd. parking lot of the Antiques & Design Mall where DJ Ralph Sosa will be pumping out the best Latin and dance beats.

Drinks provided by Liquor Sponsor Blue Nectar Tequila and Purus Organic Vodka, Product by Italy. COC cannot continue their great work without your help.
