$10,000 toward the Juan Boza portion of the catalogue and teachers guide that will accompany the group exhibition Caras de lo Lecumi: A Tribute to Juan Boza and The Afro-Latino, organized by director Marc Zuver. Born in Camaquey, Cuba, Boza was an Afro-Cubano artist who came to the United States in 1980 as part of a mass exodus of over 100,000 Cubans. His vibrant prints, paintings and shrine-like installations address Boza’s cultural heritage and participation in the Santeria religion.
