Unbroken Ties (Sin Rupturas): Dialogues in Cuban Art, November 11, 2006 to March 4, 2007, includes over 50 works of art by 39 Cuban artists, some living in exile some still in Cuba. Emphasizing Cuban cultural heritage, personal identity and the struggle for survival, the dialogue between the artworks reveals the common issues still pertinent to all Cubans. Jorge Santis, guest curator of the exhibition, says, “Unbroken Ties will provide the public with not only a panoramic lesson on survival—a triumph of will power over adversity—but will also demonstrate that neither time nor distance can erase the spiritual, behavioral and cultural linkage that exists between compatriots.”
 
The exhibition is mounted in 3 thematic movements—Paradise Lost, Risking Life & Limb, Unbroken Ties/A New Reality—to offer a chronological, visual narrative portraying the significant historic, political and social events that form the changing Cuban identity. Various related events accompany the exhibit.
