On behalf of the Cuban Artists Fund (CAF), thank you for your ongoing support. The past year has generated great momentum and excitement as we supported artists with grants, exhibition opportunities, and residencies. As a recognized leader, CAF will continue to meet the demands of the Cuban arts community - but we need your help. Kindly consider making a donation so we may continue to foster the vitality and spirit of Cuban artists. Take a quick look below at what’s happening at CAF. Thank you!


El Difícil Acto de Confundir el Horizonte


Because of your generosity, CAF continues to support exceptional art projects and programming such as: 

  • CAF and the Times Square Alliance (TSA) are featuring two artists in November:
    • Rachel Valdés Camejo’s THE BEGINNING OF THE END installation is on public view through November 21, 2016. It’s an interactive corridor of three mirrored surfaces, a floor and two angled walls, allowing visitors to walk on a reflection of the sky.
    • Emilio Perez’s Dream Season is a video project on Times Square’s electronic billboards from 11:57 p.m. to midnight every night in November. This project, which reveals layers of Emilio’s painting, is a part of Midnight Moment - the world’s largest, longest-running digital art exhibition.
  • CAF is working with Residency Unlimited in Brooklyn to identify Cuban artists to participate in their 2017 Residency program.  The artists include Alejandro Campins, Jose Eduardo Llorente Yaque, Yornel Martinez Elias, Renier Leyva Novo, Jorge Wellesley and Elizabeth Cervino.
  • CAF has a proven track record of facilitating cultural exchanges, arranging conferences, and creating a network of support.  In 2017, look for CAF to continue working with arts institutions in Cuba, such as Detras Del Muro, Fundacion Ludwig, Museo de Bellas Artes, Fundación Antonio Nuñez Jiménez de la Naturaleza y el Hombre, and others to forge a new road map for improving international cooperation in arts and culture between the U.S. – Cuba.
  • CAF, EcoArt Project, and Art for Promotion has organized Design Havana, a competition soliciting proposals of eco-friendly furniture and lighting design from Cuba-based designers and architects. The finalists will be announced in early 2017.

Our successes are made possible through our network of support.  We thank you for your consideration and look forward to seeing you at our future events.
