Biographical Note

The Cuban Museum of the Americas, more commonly known by its former name, The Cuban Museum of Arts and Culture, began in the 1974 with a mission to collect art and historical documents from Cuba. The museum collected and displayed works of art by Cuban artists, including those living in Cuba, Cuban artists living abroad, and Cuban-Americans. Operating for several years without a permanent location, the museum found a home in the Little Havana neighborhood of Miami from 1982 to 1991. With its closure in 1999, the museum donated its collections and records to the Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami. The administrative records and historical documents were subsequently transferred to the Cuban Heritage Collection.
