From world-class art galleries in former warehouses to striking urban street art and restored vintage neon signs that beacon you towards tucked-away home studios on quiet streets, Cuba’s art scene is an unrivaled masterpiece. It reflects the island’s diverse cultural influences from the past, the rising innovators of today and a hopeful new vision for the future. The vast array of art, creativity and design is electrifying, making Cuba one of the most exciting art destinations in the world.
Art has long been a core part of Cuban culture housing the oldest arts academy in Latin America, which has trained generations of brilliant creators. A diverse array of artistic styles, disciplines and spaces, ranging from fine arts museums to boutique galleries and community art projects that have restored entire neighborhoods makes up the multifaceted art scene that continues to evolve today.
