Benefit and Exclusive Screening: Unfinished Spaces

This event has passed.

The 8th Floor is proud to host a benefit and exclusive screening for Unfinished Spaces. RSVP confirmed via donation.

Sunday, October 23rd, 2011 4 PM

We are honored to welcome Ricardo Porro, architect of Cuba’s National Arts Schools and Alysa Nahmias, co-director of Unfinished Spaces, for a discussion and Q & A after the screening. Hors d’oeurves and wine reception to follow.

Cuba’s ambitious National Art Schools project, designed by three young architects in the wake of Castro’s Revolution, is neglected, nearly forgotten, then ultimately rediscovered as a visionary architectural masterpiece.
