Students From the Alba Academy of Plastic Arts in the Eastern Cuban City of Holguin, Exhibit Their Work in Canada
The exhibition, called 'Cuba: Art and History from 1868 Until Today, is part of a project of artistic cooperation born in 2005 between this Cuban academy and the College de Bois of Boulogne.

This program, that emerged from the cooperation and exchange between Canadian professor Marie Luise Pepin and Cuban Ernesto Blanco, also benefits the promotion of both cultures through the study of the work of two great poets: Jose Marti and Arthur Rimbaud.

In 2006, Canadian students showed their work at the Alba Academy in Holguin while Cuban students exhibited a collection that was named after one of Rimbauds texts: 'A Season in Hell.

The Alba Academy in Holguin was founded 47 years ago and it trains 70 youths from Holguin province in all the specialties of plastic arts.
