David Obermeyer

Obermeyer had the opportunity to travel to Havana, Cuba on two occasions in early 2019. He found himself wandering the streets of Havana concentrating on the everyday in Cuba, looking for the link that connects us all regardless of space.

Cuba is a complex country. The government provides everyone with housing, healthcare and a good education, a good model, but the sixty year embargo has made life a hardship for the Cuban people. There were bright spots in the economy during the Obama administration but the Trump Administration has taken us backwards as if that surprises anyone.

Obermeyer hopes Americans will work to end the embargo started 60 years ago whose sole purpose was to inflict hardship on the Cuban people. We need to stand up and embrace our socialist neighbors, in order to move forward.

Open by appointment only outside of receptions though March 6th. Please call 312 852 7717 for an appointment.
