Xavier Cortada was recently awarded the Grand Prize "Best of Show" Award at the Arte + Arte group exhibit at the Florida Museum of Hispanic and Latin American Art in Coral Gables.
Cortada's painting, Comunión en la Plaza (acrylic on canvas, 53" x 86", 1998) was chosen among the works exhibited at the museum during November 1998 by 27 artists from across the Hemisphere. The painting, which was recently used as a poster for a University of Miami conference on Cuba, was inspired by Cortada's 8 hour visit to Havana on January 25, 1998 for the Pope's Mass in the Plaza of the Revolution.
The Florida Museum of Hispanic and Latin American Art's "Arte + Arte" exhibit opening reception was on Friday, November 1st, 1998 from 6 to 10 p.m.
