Buoyancy, an exhibition of works by three Cuban artists, opened Monday at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. The exhibition decorates Concourses E and F of Terminal 1, and includes photography by Omar Valenti, paintings by Adrian Rumbaut, and paintings and sculpture by Camilo Villavilla. This groundbreaking exhibit of Cuba-based artists at a major U.S. airport follows the historic visit by the Minnesota Orchestra to Cuba in May of this year.

This exhibition is a collective collaboration by Airport Foundation MSP, Arts @ MSP, and the Metropolitan Arts Commission.
