Celebrating Cuban Arts

For two weeks this spring, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts will present Artes de Cuba: From the Island to the World, a festival celebrating the artistic richness that has emerged from this "island archipelago in the sun." This unprecedented gathering of Cuban and Cuban-American artists represents some of the world's greatest from the island and the Diaspora.

Attending the festival?

The Cubano Club, “Noches Cubanas”, and Cuban cuisine are just a few things you can experience during your time at Artes de Cuba.
