Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) and Arts @ MSP are hosting a Cuban art exhibit titled “Buoyancy” on both Concourses E and F in MSP’s Terminal 1 – Lindbergh.

Why ‘Buoyancy’? It’s a nod to to “the spirit of the Cuban people, who have continued to thrive despite more than a half century of trade embargoes and political conflict.”

In addition to visual art, the exhibit also includes a visual and sound installation about Cuba by The Touch of Sound, an online library of authentic recordings collected from around the world by Minnesota brothers Jesse and Jonah Marks, who partnered with the US Cuba Artist Exchange in tour of Cuba,

    The exhibit “Fresh art from Cuba at MSP Airport” is being billed in some places as the first exhibit by Cuban artist at a US airport. Do not know if Cuban artist Viredo “The Colors of Cuba” back in 2008 at John Wayne Airport in Orange County California was the first. But Cuban art has been shown before at a US airport!
