The International Colloquium “Memory and Future: Cuba and Fidel,” organized by the Oswaldo Guayasamin Foundation to honor the leader of the Cuban Revolution on his 80th birthday, is to begin Wednesday, November 29 at the International Convention Center in Havana, with more than 1,800 prominent individuals from 80 nations.

For two days, political leaders, social activists, writers and artists will address – from their own and diverse viewpoints – the achievements attained in Cuba under Fidel’s leadership, and in a very special way, his perspectives and international impact, according to the event organizers. On Thursday, in a plenary session, the colloquium’s closing will take place at the Karl Marx Theater.

That same day, an exhibition is to be inaugurated in the National Museum of Fine Arts with 100 original works by the maestro Oswaldo Guayasamin from three of his most representative illustrative series: Huacaynan (El Camino del llanto), La edad de la ira and La edad de la ternura. The exhibit will also include portraits of Fidel painted by Guayasamin at different times.

    Sounds like a tribute to a dead man and this coming from Granma?

    Kind of creepy.

    Doesn’t look good for Fidel if he is letting this be written about him in his own newspaper.
