Linda S. Howe, curator of the Cuban Artists Exhibition, will lecture on how the art reveals complexities of Cuban life.
Howe is a professor of Romance Languages at Wake Forest University. The exhibit was organized with the help of dozens of Wake Forest faculty, staff and students.
"These artists have survived cultural politics, difficult living conditions and, at times, resource shortages that limited their access to the most basic materials, like paper," said Howe.
"These works comment on daily existence, reflect awareness of international art currents, and draw on Cuban history and its traditional and popular cultures."
The works are on display in Woodland Building outside the Art studios and in Woodland Commons, in addition to the Dean's Dining Room in Lares Building.
12pm Lecture - 112 Woodland
3pm Reception - Woodland Commons
