ABOUT THE HONOREES


Ella Fontanals-Cisneros is a philanthropist and entrepreneur with an abiding passion and discerning eye for contemporary art and design. Born in Cuba and raised in Venezuela, she is a true internationalist whose generosity, vision and dynamism have made a significant impact on the contemporary art community and within art organizations around the globe. In 2002 she founded in Miami the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation, a non-profit which fosters understanding and appreciation of contemporary artists from Latin America through grants, commissions, exhibitions and bilingual publications.


Cristina García is a Cuban-born American journalist and novelist. Author of six novels—including Dreaming in Cuban, The Lady Matador’s Hotel, and King of Cuba—García has been nominated for a National Book Award and her works have been translated into fourteen languages. She is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, an NEA grant and other awards, and has taught at universities nationwide. Recently, she completed her tenure as University Chair in Creative Writing at Texas State University-San Marcos and as Visiting Professor at the Michener Center for Writers at the University of Texas-Austin.


Los Carpinteros is a Havana-based collective formed by artists Marco Castillo, Dagoberto Rodriquez, and, until his departure in June 2003, Alexandre Arrechea. The artists pay homage to an older guild tradition of artisans and skilled laborers, denouncing their individual artist names.  Los Carpinteros’ work—which combines and celebrates architecture, design and sculpture and balances between functional and nonfunctional—are part of the permanent collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art/Los Angeles, The  Museum  of  Modern  Art/New  York,  the Guggenheim Museum, the Tate Museum, and other major international museums and galleries.


Ben Rodriguez-Cubeñas has been program director for the Rockefeller Brothers Fund's New York City program for more than 18 years.  In 1998, he co-founded the Cuban Artists Fund, (CAF) an organization dedicated to helping individual artists and to promoting mutual understanding and relationship building with Cuba through arts. He currently serves as the chair of CAF. In 2001 he organized the first joint Cuba–U.S. Cultural Exchanges Conference and was the driving force behind the first Cuban/NY Festival in 2005.
