A Political Prisoner's Art, "From the Inside Out"
Opening reception August 8, 5 - 8 PM

Prints of watercolor paintings by self-taught artist and political prisoner Antonio Guerrero will be on display at the Community Media Center of Marin, 819 A Street, San Rafael throughout the month of August. The Media Center's hours are Tuesday-Thursday 2-9 PM; Friday 11-6 PM; Saturday 12-6 PM.

An opening reception for the artist will be held on Friday, August 8, from 5-8 PM during the monthly San Rafael downtown art walk.

Antonio is one of five Cubans arrested in Miami in September 1998. The mission of "The Cuban Five" was to infiltrate anti-Cuban terrorist groups in Miami and report their activities to prevent attacks against the government and people of Cuba. Their arrests occurred shortly after the Cuban government shared information with the US concerning terrorist actions against Cuba being planned in Miami. Although The Cuban Five posed no threat to US national security, they were sentenced to four life sentences and 77 years collectively.

This exhibit is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the Task Force on the Americas and the International Committee to Free the Cuban Five. For more information please call 415/924-3227.
