The Wait for Cuban Cigars and Rum continues as we take another look at ‘Wrinkles of The City – Havana’ by JR & José Parlá

As the exciting news of the lift on the Cuban embargo continues, we take the time to revisit one of our favorite and memorable projects of 2012: Wrinkles of The City – Havana, Cuba by JR & José Parlá.  The two artists surprised the city with stunning walls that paid tribute to those who lived through the Cuban Revolution for the occasion of  the Havana Biennal. Cuba is now destined to change and we find ourselves taking another look at this video to imagine how Havana will soon change. The city will never be the same again.
