The other museum is much newer having been recently remodeled by architect Jose Linares in 2009.
There is a large courtyard as you enter, and sculpture like this surrounding the open space. Here is another piece of sculpture composed of those little metal espresso makers.
What's disappointing to me is the lack of women artists in the museum. One would think that since the country was communist, there would be more equal footing for the artistas. No, it's still the same sexist bullshit as we see in museums in the US and Europe. Guess it only shows that it doesn't matter what type of government you have, sexism is still endemic.
This is the mural that I saw as I was leaving the building and then I spotted this public sculpture clinging to the side of the building.
m over to the Necropolis Cristóbal Colón. I can't wait to see his photos from that jaunt.
Later that evening, we slipped away from the rest of the group to have a little dinner on our own down in Cathedral Square. Dinner wasn't that good there, but we were able to feed one of the little street dogs that haunt Havana streets. More about that later.
