The experiences of individuals who have been connected directly to, or associated with, Guantánamo come together in their artwork which speaks for thousands of diverse individuals who have lived in or have been influenced by their time there.

American military personnel and their families, Haitian and Cuban refugees, and post 9/11 detainees are among those who have had associations with this famous U.S. naval base in Cuba.

Curated by students enrolled in the Graduate Certificate of Museum Studies at Florida International University under the direction of professor Melissa Diaz in association with the Guantánamo Public Memory Project.
