In conjunction with Lo que es, es lo que ha sido/What It Is, Is What Has Been: Selections from the ASU Art Museum’s Cuban Art Collection at the Phoenix Art Museum, the ASU Art Museum presents their Cuban Print Collection. A portfolio of eleven prints was published by Arizona State University Art Museum in conjunction with the 1998 exhibition Contemporary Art from Cuba: Irony and Survival on the Utopian Island organized by the ASU Art Museum in Tempe, Arizona. The exhibition featured the work of 17 artists living and working in Cuba. Curated by Marilyn A. Zeitlin, the Museum’s director and chief curator at the time, the exhibition represented a milestone for Cuban art and brought awareness of that art in the United States. The lithographs and photolithographs were printed at Segura Publishing Company, Inc., in Tempe, Arizona, by Joe Freye. The woodcuts, linocut, collograph, and etching were printed at Armstrong Prior, Inc., in Phoenix, Arizona, by John Armstrong.
