Cuban Legacy Gallery

Please note that the Museum of Art and Design and MDC Special Collections, including the Cuban Legacy Gallery, are currently closed while the Freedom Tower undergoes renovations.

Cuban Legacy Gallery

The Cuban Legacy Gallery hosts dynamic exhibitions of contemporary art that reflects the impact of Cuban culture in South Florida and throughout the world. Showcasing artists of Cuban descent, these exhibitions elucidate the richness of the Cuban American experience. The exhibitions and related programs often use cultural heritage as a lens to explore history, identity, and exile.
