On February 23, The Department of Art History and The Museum of Fine Arts co-hosted a Colloquium on Law, Cultural Patrimony and the International Art Trade in conjunction with Cuban Art in the Twentieth Century, an exhibition running through March 27th. Art history professors, Dr. Michael Carrasco and Dr. Preston McLane examined the global context of Cuban art through the intersections of law, cultural patrimony,  the international art trade, and collecting. The colloquium panel also included Professor Fernando Tesón of the FSU College of Law, and leading expert on Cuban art Ramón Cernuda, Director and CEO of Cernuda Arte in Coral Gables, Florida.
