Willimantic, Conn. - The Department of Visual Arts at Eastern Connecticut State University is conducting a three-credit global field course titled "ART 316 Art and Travel: Cuba" from May 19 to May 29. The course features a 10-day trip to Cuba.
Professor Gail Gelburd, chair of the Visual Arts Department, has been visiting Cuba for 20 years, and will lead the study tour. She will share her knowledge of Cuban history, art and culture and will also take students throughout Cuba to explore that country's Spanish and French connections. Other highlights include visiting the home of Ernest Hemingway, as well as visiting the homes and studios of some of today's most important contemporary artists.
Cuba has recently reopened for educational tours this year. Eastern students will be there for 10 days during Havana Biennale, one of the largest art festivals in the world, featuring art of Asia, Africa and Latin America. The festival happens once every three years in the streets of Havana.
