WBGO Gallery Exhibition

CUBA: A Photographic Journey 1987-2014 by Mansa K. Mussa

Monday, July 27 – Friday, Oct 16, 2015
Gallery Reception Thursday, October 15, 6-8PM

Newark artist Mansa K. Mussa has been traveling to Cuba for the past twenty-seven years. This photographic documentary show shares his iconic images from those many years exploring the island nation’s people, places, dance, and culture through photographs, collages, shadow boxes and "iPadology."

I don’t get the use of the quote here. Is that a quote by Mussa? It doesn’t quite fit here. It would be good to have a quote from the artist if possible here.

This exhibit will run through Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept 15 – Oct 15) – a special time that we can proudly honor the history and heritage of more than one third of Newark’s population.

The WBGO Gallery is located in the heart of Downtown Newark in the headquarters of WBGO. Exhibits highlight local and national artists covering themes that often reference music or features work by visual artists who are also renowned musicians. Curator Dorthaan Kirk (Newark’s “First Lady of Jazz”) choses exhibits that cross cultural lines and honor Newark culture, and legacies including Hispanic heritage, Black history and women’s history.
