HAVANA, Oct. 30 Exuberarte 2023, the largest artisanal fashion festival in Cuba, closes. Once again, the city of Santa Clara hosted this event, in which works of Cuban plastic art were paraded and converted into pieces of costume.
This Sunday and as a surprise, the plastic artist Oscar de la Portilla Escandón received the status of Illustrious Guest of the City of Santa Clara.
A few hours before he had expressed: «I am very satisfied with the entire Exuberarte celebration; I have returned with the hope of bringing my designs, which I also sewed.
I appreciate the attention that the directors of the Cuban Cultural Assets Fund have had to the artists, and it has been gratifying that they have had the courtesy to put the looms on sale – at very reasonable prices – both in clothing and fabric by the meter, thinking that a greater number of people can acquire and enjoy them.
The loom has excellent prospects; There will be news soon,” he commented.
