The main motivation of the collection, of which there are dozens of paintings, drawings and three dimensional pieces, is the figure of the rooster, the symbol of the tradition of the Cuban countryside.
Ever Fonseca, who received recognition in representation of all of the participating artists, during the opening of the exhibition, highlighted that the idea was conceived by the UNEAC and the CDR, which through the project El Gallo de la Revolución, aim to take the art of Cuban cultural avant-garde to different parts of the country.
Previously, several of the creators participated in the opening of a similar exhibition that together with 50 pieces more, has been opened permanently in the Peasant Struggle Museum, in the far away community of El Plátano, in the Pilón municipality.
This last exhibition was born out of an announcement made in the Cuban capital for small format pieces. At first, it was presented in March, in the José Martí Memorial, and after an itinerant tour it had El Plátano as its final destiny, the land of the Commander of the Revolution Guillermo García Frías.
