Cuban Artists Begin Tour Around Penitentiary Centers
A group of Cuban artists began last Sunday in the easternmost province of Guantanamo a tour around penitentiaries across the island as part of an initiative to promote cultural activities there.

The Cuban Parliament approved the initiative last June in order to systematize the presence of diverse cultural expressions in these centers to favor the inmates'rehabilitation and to strengthen the cultural movement there.

The group also includes painter Ernesto Rancaño, who will be in charge of a traveling exhibition and also of capturing moments of their visits in paintings.

These group of renowned artists will alternate in their performances with amateur artists linked to the work of cultural promotion carried out by art instructors working in penitentiaries.

A similar experience took place in the spring of 1990 in the penitentiaries of the western part of the country but it will now cover all the island.
