90 miles to Cuba. How to get there?

Once the wheels of our American Airlines charter plane screeched on the runway, signaling that we had landed on Cuban soil, a roar of applause started. Nothing surprising so far, we Romanians do the same once we land to safety. The difference was I had just landed in Cuba, on a plane full of Americans, myself included. The only ones applauding were the Cuban Americans, visiting their families. The rest of us still had our noses pegged to the window.

RIERA STUDIO

Observe artists in action at this independent workshop for Cubans with mental health disorders.

Cuba’s art scene flourishes in large part due to support and funding from the government. So to help showcase outsider voices, Samuel Riera launched the independent Riera Studio in 2012. Built outside mainstream art institutions, the Riera Studio is a space for artists with no formal training and people on the margins of Cuban society.
