Your tour begins in the early afternoon with a visit to the Museum of Fine Arts, founded in 1913. Discover the two buildings that belong to this museum, one of which houses Cuban art in the Museum of Fine Arts and the other universal art in the Asturian Center building. The visit will expose you to the painters from early Cuban history dating from the 17th century until today. It will also explain the history and state of its artists, a history often unexplored and misunderstood. You will learn about the architecture of these beautiful buildings and the sculptures surrounding them.
Your next stop will be at Muraleando: a community art project. During the poverty-stricken “Special Period” Cuba endured after the Soviet Union collapsed, localized community projects were organized, many of which were created to teach children art and music to lift people’s spirits. The artists come to teach the children from their goodwill in hopes of selling their art. Profits from their artwork are split. The artist takes 50%, and the other 50% goes to the project that teaches approximately 230 children art, singing, music, and more after school and on the weekends.
