with Common Ground
Experience the Havana Biennial
May 27 to June 3 
Dear Friends
We are so pleased to work with Paradiso of the Cuban Ministry of Culture to be able to offer you a trip to the 13th Art Biennial of Havana.  
Our trip is May 27 to June 3, in the midst of the exhibits and festivities.  
The Havana Biennial runs May 22 to June 22, one of the most important of the international art biennials and certainly one of the most important art events in the Hemisphere.  
More than that for us in the United States, it is an opportunity to visit Cuba and get to know the people of Cuba. If you have been before, go again. If you have never been, this is the time to go.
Note:  If you cannot go on these dates, get in touch with us for other trips scheduled during the Biennial
Following are the Details of the Trip
