In 2007, art gallery space was added to the Community Room of the Cuba Circulating Library. This was made possible by gifts from Jim and Delores Cross, and from Dean Benham in honor of his grandchildren, Jack and Claire Benham. This space is used to highlight the works of local artists.
This series of images was taken during May 2014 in London and Paris.
