Opening of "Hemingway's Cuba" Art Exhibition at Finca Vigia

Here are images from my "Hemingway's Cuba" exhibition, and the elegant opening soiree at Finca Vigia, Hemingway's home (now a museum).  Many thanks to Museo de Hemingway for the invitation to show the exhibition, which will be running through June 22.
