Door54’s inaugural Noche Blanca promises to be a feast for all the senses. When the doors open at 8:00 pm on December 12, visitors will be welcomed with recent art from Cuba, historical photographs from the beginning of the 20th Century, live music, and newsreels from the 1950s continually looping in the auditorium. The following is a list of the planned exhibits:
- Eduardo Abela is one of the rising stars of Cuban art, with examples of his work in the Bellas Artes Museo in Havana. He follows in his famous grandfather’s footsteps (also named Eduardo Abela) and at the age of 50 is already highly collectible. Five of his recent works will be available for viewing and purchase.
- Stephania Nur is another up-and-coming young artist from Havana. Her work is whimsical bordering on the surreal. A selection of her work will also be available for viewing and purchase.
- Of significant historical interest is the Struck collection of stereoscopic photographs from the beginning of the 20th Century (see accompanying article). A select number of archival prints will be available for viewing and purchase.
- Carlos Camero is another well-known Cuban artist who is accomplished in many different mediums. His collection of hand-painted, one-of-a-kind platters and dinner plates is sure to generate significant interest. The platters measure 18 inches in diameter. Each plate is unique and one-of-a-kind.
In addition to the art exhibit, Door54 will be presenting live music (performer to be announced), and Newsreels from the 50s and 60s continually playing in the auditorium. Complimentary snacks and drinks will be available, as will items for purchase from the regular menu.
