will present The Face of Neocolonialism at an opening night
reception on
Friday February 3, 2017 at 5:00pm at La Galleria de Arte
Universal. The exhibit will then be open to the public through

.

This exhibition, curated by artists Rosio De Los Angeles and Romel
Vuelta Riva, is organized by Tony Savino Photography and Lobey Art &
Travel and will feature the work of photographer and visual artist
Tony Savino.

It exposes the life of sugar workers, most of whom are Haitians or of
Haitian descent and their families.  It also documents the struggle for
labor rights, basic human rights and the complex relationship between
Haitian and Dominican workers under a neocolonial regime.   

La Galleria de Arte Universal is housed in the former U.S. Consulate
Building and hosts year round exhibitions by noted Cuban and foreign
artists.

A warm invitation is extended to the Universidad de Oriente Santiago
de Cuba and other educational and cultural organizations, to the
Haitian community and student body of Santiago de Cuba and to the
public at large to attend and enjoy not only the exhibit, but also the
rich history, culture and people of our host city.   

Admission to the Universal Gallery is open and free to the public, live
entertainment and refreshments will be provided.
