Zilia Sánchez: Soy Isla (I Am an Island) will be on view February 16–May 19, 2019, and will be accompanied by a major publication and newly commissioned artist’s documentary about her life and work.

The CINTAS fellowships have given Cuban artists “the incentive to work, the hope of a viable future, the self-respect, and in many cases the material means to do well in a highly competitive society to which they had arrived in the worst possible circumstances,” wrote the late artist and first CINTAS winner Daniel Serra-Badué. Learn more 



The CINTAS Foundation oversees two important art collections in the United States. The Master Paintings from the Spanish School include pieces that date back to the 16th century and Spain’s Golden Age. Among the works in the collection are Ribera’s Saint Peter (right), El Greco’s Christ Carrying the Cross and Feast in the House of Simon, Murillo’s Portrait of A Gentleman Holding A Hat, and Goya’s Admiral José de Mazarredo and Marquis de Caballero. The CINTAS Fellows Collection, on long-term loan to Miami Dade College Museum of Art & Design at the Historic Freedom Tower, is believed to be the largest gathering of Cuban exile art anywhere. . Learn more
