|The multicultural City of Miami has become a new-dynamic epicenter of the arts in America in large part due to the significant number of artworks installed in public places that have enriched and graced the visual landscape of the city.A PowerPoint presentation, organized by the speaker, Jorge A. Hernández, will allow the audience to discover more than one hundred sculptures, monuments, murals, and art installations created by Cuban artists that embellish many public places in the city's milieu. The exciting journey of Hernández's research examines the impact of Cuban art in the urban landscape, and reveals the exact location of these pieces in public parks, bridges, public buildings, metro mover stations, condominiums, and open spaces around Miami.

"As a resident of Miami and an admirer of Cuban art, this research allowed me to explore new places around the city, and discover some important pieces that are unknown or forgotten by many people in this community. I hope that this compilation helps to expose the influence of Cuban art in the urban landscape of our city.” Jorge Hernandez
