For Artes de Cuba, the Terrace Gallery transforms into the Cubano Club:

For Artes de Cuba, the Kennedy Center’s Terrace Gallery transforms into the Cubano Club. As one of two installations he’ll create for the festival, Cuban visual artist Roberto Diago will design a striking façade for the Cubano Club using wood and other materials to embody the spirit of jazz, Afro-Cuban culture, and the vibrant network between Cuban and American artists. Audiences can enjoy performances and cocktail tastings in this evocative space, surrounded by photos of Cuban and American musicians that capture all the color, sounds, and vitality they brought from Cuba to the U.S. (and vice versa) through their art.
