Jewish Cuban artists' exhibit opens with a visit to Cornell in March

Two Jewish Cuban artists will visit Cornell University in March as part of a Contemporary Cuban Art Exhibit sponsored by the Yudowitz Center for Jewish Campus Life-Cornell Hillel and the Latin American Studies Program. The exhibit runs from Feb. 28 to March 11 in the Hartell Gallery in Sibley Hall on the Cornell campus.

A gala reception for the artists, Orestes Larios Zaak and Vicente Dopico-Lerner, will be held Monday, March 6, at 5:30 p.m. in the Hartell Gallery. Both artists will be on campus for several days to discuss ideas about art and Cuba with students, faculty and staff. The exhibit and the reception are free and open to the public.

The artists will be available for interviews while on campus. For more information, contact Mary Jo Dudley, Latin American Studies Program, (607) 255-3345; or Judith Stauber with Cornell-Hillel, (607) 255-9772.
