DESCRIPTION

Havana is the focus of the next exhibition in the Wolfsonian Teaching Gallery at the Frost Art Museum on view in the fall of 2010. By presenting a variety of materials from the collection of The Wolfsonian–Florida International University (magazines, photography, architectural drawings, tourist ephemera, and other media), it explores how international commercial and cultural links contributed to the emergence of a modern identity for the city in the decades before the Cuban Revolution. The exhibition is made possible by financial support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
