Cuban Cultural Exchange

February 11, 2011

 To the Editor:

Re “The Arts of Cuba, Set to Wow New York” (Arts pages, Feb. 9):

I was delighted to learn about the coming appearances in New York-based venues of many of Cuba’s most accomplished artists. This valuable contact between those in Cuba and Americans can only foster good will between these somewhat strained societies.

This approach could be significantly enhanced if it became a true exchange, which is to say that Cuban society would benefit as much if it were exposed to the many talented Cuban-Americans residing in the United States who for reasons known only to the Cuban government are not allowed to perform in Cuba today.

With luck, those responsible for facilitating the visit of Cuban artists to the United States can help make future opportunities one in which “exchange” becomes more of an operative word.
