It's 2015 and Beyond! Cuban Art is Booming!

In a previous post, shared a cherished personal memory at this site and titled it My Introduction to Cuban Art. It was humorous but this post is serious.
 

Almost every evening, our PBS station (Public Broadcasting Service) airs the news hour and many parts of the program are special segments. Very recently, President Obama upset quite a few people when he announced his plans to strive to normalize relations between the USA and Cuba. Whether people agree or disagree, it's happening . PBS' special segment is a series called “The Cuban Evolution”. My antennas went up when it was announced that there was to be a discussion of the current art scene in Cuba. Jeffrey Brown, Chief Correspondent for Arts, Culture, and Society , is the lucky bloke who gets to travel to Cuba on official business to cover the series. Here are some of the highlights from the segment:

  • Havana Biennial Art Show is taking place (promotes “Third World” contemporary art)
  • Cuban art market is booming and Cuban artists are making a mark on the international art scene
  • There are still some restrictions on freedom of expression – nevertheless ...
  • Savvy art collectors are buying now because the value of their collections is sure to increase in the near future



You can watch the entire report on the PBS YouTube Channel . For me this news is exciting. The Cuban culture is so wonderfully colorful and vibrant. The people have been suppressed for way too long!

David Bowie’s Blue-Eyed Soul



Looking to celebrate the life of David Bowie?

Follow this link to 700+ articles by my fellow freelance writers, ardent admirers who are passionate the man, the music, the legend, the icon. Pages loaded with facts, trivia, etc. He has been referred to by some as the “master of reinvention”. He must have been the inspiration or role model or example for artists who seem to have been successful at reinventing themselves as well, and maintaining their long standing position in the fickle mob world of entertainment, which is no easy feat!



David Bowie's Blue-Eyed Soul

David Bowie might be one of the most unlikely blue-eyed (or more accurately, one blue eye and one green eye) soul singers in music history. Born in the bombed-out London neighborhood of Brixton in 1947, the pale, skinny, sometimes emaciated singer became known for his elegant, continental image and eclectic, artsy lyrics on his songs beginning in the late 1960s.
