Mare nostrum

Went up to the Studio Museum of Harlem and to El Museo del Barrio to check out the wonderful mega-exhibition "Caribbean: Crossroads of the World." There's more of it in the Queens Museum, which I hope I'll have a chance to visit, too. It's a stunner! Combing online reviews I found images of some of the works: Dudley Irons' "Black Star Line" (1995); portrait of Jean-Baptiste Belley; Mallica Reynolds, "Seven Brothers" (1966); Asilia Guillén's "Exodo Cubano" (1963). And, perhaps my fave, Marisa Jahn's brilliant child literacy project "El Bibliobandido."
