Faculty Member Talks to the New York Times about Artistic Exchange

SAIC faculty member Rachel Weiss (Arts Administration and Policy) was recently quoted in the New York Times in an article discussing Cuban-American artistic exchange in dance, music, and art. The article calls to attention “the cultural cross-pollination that has flowered in recent years despite bureaucratic hurdles,” and speaks of a hopeful horizon for creative exchange and collaboration, following recent strides in a recovery of relations with Cuba.

Weiss has devoted more than 30 years of in-depth research to Cuban Art. She shares her thoughts on the future of Cuban-American influence and what that might mean for art institutions in the United States.
