In my past post, I mentioned Jose Fuster’s energetic and colorful art, but also his commitment to his neighborhood and his neighbors. In later posts, I’ll introduce you to other community arts projects which are delightful, provocative, and, in their ability to engage children, adults, amateurs, professionals, and visitors, essential to the cultural life of modern Cuba.
Along the way, however, I’m happy to pause as long as I can before many works so that you can see more than the mere survey we’d see if we were passing by in a tour bus eager to get to the next stop. No commentary here, just the pictures displayed in the order in which I shot them as I walked through the few streets of Fuster’s neighborhood. The initial shots, of course, show us his house, workshop, and “front yard.” The rest show us what he’s done for (to?) his fellow residents.
I hope you enjoy them.
