Wrinkles of the City Favorite

Havana, Cuba

I think this is a very interesting project that is intended to pay hommage by showcasing portraits of survivors of the Cuban revolution. They are displayed in the streets of Havana and, as the artists explains, this is a place that lacks commercial advertising/ billboards in the streets. So they are displaying the courage and strength of those, people who should be admired, earned their place in a sense. I think is a powerful display and brings great awareness and appreciation to those who lived in Cuba during the economic strife and the harsh environment. While this can unify a community and bring pride into the changing times, would this really bring about action? And if so, what would the action be?
