JCC Exhibit Brings Cuba’s Changes Alive

JCC Exhibit Brings Cuba’s Changes Alive

The Marcus Jewish Community Center’s Katz Family Mainstreet Gallery is showing “Cuba: Then and Now,” an exhibition of photography by Susanne G. Katz, through March 15.

Katz, an AJT contributor whose work includes curating exhibits for Temple Sinai, captured the exhibit’s images over a decade of visits to Cuba, most recently in October.

“This small country was changing before my eyes,” Katz said. “As a curator, I am delighted by cultural and political contrast. The challenge for me was to focus on what to look at and how to visually describe what I was seeing. Everywhere I looked, there was an unforgettable image, and there is more to every image than a photograph can say.”

Her photographs range from the Havana biennial and Muraleando to baseball and cigars. They can be viewed whenever the Marcus JCC, 5342 Tilly Mill Road, Dunwoody, is open.
