Cuba in Columbus is the result of an organizational collaboration between visionary Cuban curator and artist Lolo Osmany Betancourt and Columbus curator Michael Reese. Reese and Ruthie Newcomer accompanied several groups of artists on trips to Cuba, where the artists fostered connections with Cuban artists. “It has been amazing to see the energy and the connections that have formed between the artists,” Reese says.

Five Columbus artists were selected to show works in the 13th Havana Biennial in Matanzas, Cuba, the country’s largest visual arts event, and an additional 34 Central Ohio artists were invited to show pieces alongside work from Cuban artists in ConnectArt, a Biennial collateral exhibit.
