Product DescriptionSHOW +
Cuba’s art has been compared to the art created in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, London and other world art centers for being one of the best in the world.
Cuban art is diverse and cultural and this tour will allow you to experience the island’s talent and maybe even meet some of the artists behind it. Your tour begins in the early afternoon with a visit to the Museum of Fine Arts, founded in 1913.
You will get to enjoy 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’s building.
Not only will a visit expose you to the painters since the beginning of Cuban history from the 17th century till today, but it will also explain the history and state of its artists, a history often unexplored and misunderstood. You will learn not only about the architecture of these wonderful buildings, but also about the sculptures surrounding both of 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 in order to lift people’s spirits. The artists come to teach the children from their own good will in hopes of selling their art. Profits from their art work are split and the artist takes 50% and the other 50% goes to the project that teaches approximately 230 children art, singing, music etc. after school and on weekends.
After a morning full of classic and modern art, you will return to the pier.
Tour begins at 10:00 am
