Xavier Cortada, "Open Garden | Fruta Bomba," charcoal on canvas, 6' x 18', (2014)

The work, inspired by Cortada's interaction with Cuban artists during his stay in Key West, is to depict a series of fruits falling upon the the island of Cuba.  Each fruit-- the product of a flower-- represents the fruits of an open society that will come to Cuba when it is finally free: a thriving economy, equal justice for all, rule of law, free and fair elections, freedom of assembly, speech, worship, and travel, human rights, etc.
