We ventured into exclusive galleries, institutions, and were joined by leaders in Afro-Cuban religions as they explained their communities.   Our next trip is to Portugal, inspired popular art in the current Heaven, Hell and Somewhere in Between exhibit. This trip will once again deliver exclusive access to artists’ studios and marketplaces where we learn what makes Portugal pulse.   To get a better idea of what these trips are like, once our Cuban adventurers arrived back at home, the group took time to share their stories on their own blog,  http://moajourneys.tumblr.com/.   By the looks of it, the group enjoyed the art tours as much as we did.   We can’t wait to rejoin  with MOA members this fall, for a closer look at the current and historic culture in Portugal.   To find out more about our next MOA cultural and art tour, please contact our sales staff at 1 800 665 3998.
