Art in Cuba is alive and well.
Ateneo Art was first established in 1999
for the promotion of Cuban artists and
their art. Its purpose was to facilitate
donations of artist materials to the
artists, establish an internet presence
for Cuban artists and open the world
market to them. Ateneo Art was an idea
born in the streets and heat of summer in Santiago de Cuba, amongst artists
connected to the Gallerie Ateneo Culturale in Santiago.
