A Lecture by Brent Winebrenner, Photographer

Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara
The Cuba that we know lies beneath a crumbling facade, the silent victim of the relentless family feud between the Castro brothers and the aging exiles in Miami’s Little Havana. While true that most of Cuba’s architectural heritage is in irreparable ruins, there are priceless treasures that have been lovingly maintained, often hidden from even the most observant visitor’s eye.
Join Brent Winebrenner for an entertaining and enlightening survey of Cuba’s architectural heritage. Along the way, he’ll provide an overview of the social, economic, physical and political forces that shaped the continually evolving Cuban architectural trends – from the early colonial period until May 1, 1961, the day that Fidel stopped time and declared Cuba a socialist state.
