Leaving the Island

The City of Union City, Mayor Brian P. Stack, and the Board of Commissioners cordially invite you to the exhibition “Jose Acosta: Cuban American Art” at the Union City Museum of Art. The opening reception will take place on Friday, November 20, 2015 at 7:00pm. The Union City Museum of Art is Located at the William V. Musto Cultural Center, 420 – 15th Street, Union City, New Jersey.  

Description (from press release): This solo exhibition by Jose Acosta will feature over thirty paintings and a large sculpture. The event includes art, live music, and refreshments. This is a free event for all to view, dance and enjoy. Jose Acosta creates lively paintings infused with dynamic forms, vibrant bright colors, swirling figures, and vivacious energy. His spectacular Van Goghesque textures consistently electrify global audiences. [. . .] Born in San Jose, Cuba, he came to the United States with his family at the tender young age of three. His paintings and art generally depict or suggest his cultural history, examining his general surroundings and daily experiences. Yet, his powerful, emotive, and playful Neo-neo-expressionistic style communicates authentic passion [. . .]
