You’re longing for warmer climes but the closest you’re getting to sun is that stock shot of a blue lagoon on your screen saver.
While your toes may not be touching sandy beaches anytime soon, a new exhibit at the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts will bring a bit of the Caribbean right to you. ¡Cuba! features paintings, sculptures, photos and music that reflect the country’s colourful political history.
Now if only you could mambo at the museum.
¡Cuba! Art and History from 1868 to Today is showing Jan. 31-June 8th, 2008, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, 1380 Sherbrooke St. W., Montreal, 514-285-2000, www.mbam.qc.ca
