The Cuban Arts Group
Dedicated to enriching and strengthening cross-cultural connections through the arts of Cuba, The Cuban Arts Group, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, is a collaborative effort between those passionate about the arts, and history, from the U.S. and Cuba. Founded in 2015 by Susie and Mitchell Rice, the Cuban Arts Group builds on cultural evolution that has taken place-- and continues to grow-- both on the island and throughout the U.S. Cuban diaspora. The organization’s mission is to educate Americans about Cuban arts and culture through thoughtfully curated exhibitions and a diverse educational arts programs including discussions, lectures, involving Cuban artists, art educators, curators, historians, and writers throughout.
Contributions to The Cuban Arts Group support its mission and programming—chief of which, in 2016, is the exhibition “Growing Up in Neverland,” an historic exhibition of eight of the most renowned and provocative contemporary Cuban artists, on view at the University of Tampa’s Scarfone/Hartley Gallery from March 4 through March 18.
