Juan Carlos García-Lavín (b. 1956, Havana): An installation artist who produces work of great mechanical complexity, García-Lavín has grounded his work on the human anatomy. “I examine bones and cartilages for their structural qualities,” the artist has said. His work was exhibited at the Cuban Museum of Art and Culture, the Ambrosino Gallery and the Bakehouse Arts Complex in Miami, and the Now Gallery in New York. He participated in the Post Miami Generation exhibition at the InterAmerican Art Gallery. One of his public art pieces is at the Ryder Trauma Center in Miami. His work is in the permanent collection of the Miami-Dade Public Library.  García-Lavín studied art at the Istituto D'Arte Pmorta Romana in Italy and at Miami-Dade Community College (Cintas for art, 1987-88)
