Cuban Photo Exhibit

The photography exhibit, The Cuban Evolutioncaptures the Cuban people’s trepidation and excitement over economic reforms that are changing Cuba’s direction from a Soviet-style economic system to one that more closely resembles that of China or Vietnam. Thirty photographs by thirteen photographers will be on display at the Krause Center for Innovation (KCI) Gallery, Foothill College, Jan. 23 – Feb. 28, 2014.  An opening reception will be held on January 23, 7-9 pm.
