Creole World Opens at Frost Art Museum in Miami

On June 13, 2015, Creole World opened at the Frost Art Museum at Florida International University in Miami. This was the first travel venue for Creole World since the inaugural exhibit closed in New Orleans in December 2014. Over 700 people attended the Miami opening. A Cuban band played some great music and the stellar local bookstore Books & Books was on hand to sell Creole World, the book. The day before, on June 12, I gave a talk and keynote presentation at the Books & Books store in Coral Gables. I met many people at the opening, including several faculty from Florida International University. The immigrant communities of Miami were out in force. I met folks from Cuba, Nicaragua, Colombia, and Haiti. I also met curator and art writer Dennys Matos, who wrote a wonderful review of Creole World for El Nuevo Herald, which you can read here: Cuban artist Carlos Luna also had an opening on the same night. It was a great honor to meet him and exhibit with him. Creole World will be on display at the Frost through August 23rd of this year.

A second review of Creole World by Dennys Matos was published August 7, 2015, which you can read here:
