Art Exhibit | Visionary Aponte: Art & Black Freedom

The art exhibit Visionary Aponte: Art & Black Freedom focuses on an extraordinary - and now lost - historical artifact: a "Book of Paintings" created by José Antonio Aponte, a free black carpenter, artist, and former soldier who was also the leader of an ambitious antislavery movement in Cuba during the Age of Revolution. During his trial, Aponte was forced to describe each of the pictures in his book, which portrayed a wide array of subjects, from Biblical scenes to episodes in the history of Africa, Europe, and the Americas.
