About the Trip

This special trip is designed for art lovers and collectors — be it your first time in Havana or as a repeat visitor to this amazing city. Mingle with curators, artists, and collectors at the XIII Havana Art Biennial. In the last Havana Biennial, more than 200 artists participated, with works in over 80 locations throughout the city. The festival is centered at the Spanish fortress known as La Cabaña, which offers incredible views of the city and harbor entrance. We will also experience Old Havana on a walking tour, visit a cigar factory, savor a mojito at the Hotel Nacional, and meet emerging artists in their homes and studios.

This meeting is free and open to all Museum members interested in the trip.

Please RSVP by January 9, 2019.
