Virginia Beahan: Cuba Now
Virginia Beahan: Cuba Now at Joseph Bellows Gallery. "...The exhibition will feature photographs from Beahan's series on the social and political landscape of Cuba, and will be on view from June 16 to August 31, 2007. Beahan became interested in Cuba in 1986 while visiting her father who was living in the Miami neighborhood known as 'Little Havana.' She was captivated by the brightly colored housed, the Latin music, and the vivacity of the community. Moved by stories neighbors told of their flights from Castro's Cuba and of families being torn apart, Beahan was equally struck by the anger, as well as the resilience, of those who suffered the effects of the 1959 Revolution."
