Cuba is only 90 miles away from Florida, but for most Americans it might as well be another planet. The socialist nation has been off-limits to us since the U.S. trade embargo was imposed 50 years ago.
WBUR's Andrea Shea had the rare chance to travel there recently on a people-to-people cultural tour with Michelle Wojcik, a Boston gallery owner who, despite the embargo, is able to deal exclusively in Cuban art.
Starting Monday, we’ll hear Andrea's reports on changes in Cuba, and how artists have been pioneers in the country's creative economy. They'll air at 90.9 FM and here at wbur.org. In this visual preview of her series, "Cuba Opens Through Art," Shea guides us through some of her favorite moments of her trip.
