Nuestro Martí, a short documentary produced by Google, uses the magic of virtual reality to tell the story of Cuban national hero, José Martí. The film explores Havana, the city of his birth, while providing glimpses of New York and Tampa - cities that shaped his poetry and philosophy.
In 2017, the Bronx Museum will present a full-scale reproduction of Anna Hyatt Huntington’s bronze equestrian sculpture of Martí in battle, valiantly fighting for Cuban independence, as a gift from the people of United States to the people of Cuba.
We invite you to support the Friends of José Martí Sculpture Project and join The Bronx Museum of the Arts to complete this gesture intended to strengthen the bridge between our two countries. All donations to aid in the completion of this project will be gratefully acknowledged.
Contributors over $150 will receive an invitation to our January 28th private U.S. premier of Google’s Virtual Reality film Nuestro Martí at the Sikkema Jenkins Gallery in Chelsea, New York City.
The José Martí Sculpture Project appreciates contributions in any amount. All donations to the project via The Bronx Museum of the Arts, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
