On Wednesday, October 31, fifteen intrepid Woodson Art Museum travelers and I departed for Havana from Miami on a charter flight. Two additional members of our group, delayed by Hurricane Sandy, caught up with us the next day.
Thanks to a People-to-People license for travel to Cuba, the Woodson Art Museum was able to provide an exceptional eight-day experience that spanned urban life, colonial architecture, rural communities, and the island’s indigenous birdlife.
With more than 1,400 images to organize and sort through and dozens of amazing experiences to reflect on – and an ambitious installation underway in the galleries – I’m going to keep this blog post short and let the photos that follow do the talking!
