Italian, Honduran and Cuban artists participate in the first international workshop on stone sculpture, inaugurated on Monday, in the eastern province of Holguin, for fostering environmental development programs in the city.
Honduran sculptor Fausto Tabora told that this comprehensive project is really interesting because the sculptures convey the concept of a human revolution to promote values such as respect, love, sensitivity, and humanism.
The event, sponsored by the National Union of Writers and Artists of Cuba (UNEAC), is scheduled to end by March 5.
The venue of the meeting is the house of Cuban sculptor Luis Silva, located in El Purial, ten kilometres east of the city of Holguin. Silva noted that this event is an opportunity to boost this kind of plastic art by really committing to it.
The workshop stands out for the confluence of artistic currents like minimalism, modern figurative art, and magic realism which are given shape and life in stones coming from Los Haticos, a rural zone in the municipality of Baguano, in the eastern part of Cuba.
