Eugene Weekly : Visual Art : 11.26.08

During fall term, the J-Schnitz has been going full-steam with its bilingual “Cuba Avant-Garde” exhibit (it’s the only space where this exhibit has been that has fully bilingual wall descriptions, brochures and press material). And the musuem on the UO campus is open for special holiday hours this weekend, so instead of (or after) dragging the kids to Bolt, head over to campus and enjoy the art! At 6 pm Wednesday, Dec. 3, there’s also Chamber Music on Campus, in which UO students perform “chamber music with a Latin flavor.” You can snag Cuba libres and mojitos in the Marché Café the same night from 5 to 7:30 pm at the museum’s MIX — so there’s alcohol, music, art and fun all on the same night. ¡Vive la arte contemporáneo Cubano!
