    Cuba: An African Odyssey tells the story of the Cold War through its least known theatre: Africa.

    Soon after the Cuban revolutionaries' victory in 1959, Africas young revolutionaries, led by

    Lumumba, Cabral and Neto, asked Cubas freedom fighters for help in their battle against colonial

    domination. Cuba played a key role in Africas struggle for liberation.

    From Che Guevaras work in the Congo to the triumphant Battle of Cuito Cuanavale in Angola,

    Cuba: An African Odyssey tells a crucial piece of the story behind the so-called Cold War, shows

    the true meaning of international solidarity and sheds light on the current dynamic in Africa.

    U.S. Debt and the Millennials:

    Is Washington Creating a Lost Generation?

    It is a tumultuous time to be a young American. The national debt is accruing at a record

    pace, more than doubling in the past decade to reach $14.6 trillion today, and future

    liabilities threaten to drive government spending even higher. Job growth has been tepid,with unemployment persistently over 9 percent. For soon-to-be college graduates and

    early professionals looking to find jobs and plot their futures, many are at a loss for what to

    expect and how to move forward.

    How will mounting deficits impact todays young people in the years to come? Some argue

    that government spending is necessary to ensure the future by providing school loans,

    unemployment insurance, infrastructure investments, and other social provisions. Others

    hold that government spending cripples the future due to massive welfare commitments,

    misaligned economic incentives, and polluted market signals.

    Join us to hear from a panel of young wonks and journalists as they discuss the pending

    outlook for Millennials.

    Showing through September 16, 2011

    This exhibition is the result of an artistic dialog about the "delusions of grandeur" that each artist

    possesses in order to continue progressing in their careers and most importantly in their artwork.

    Ascension, the act of rising to an important position or a higher level, is the theme adapted for this

    current body of work. Each artist presents his individual interpretation of the act of ascending.

    Artist,Shaunt Gates'work combines multiple processes and genres, by taking appropriations

    and gestures from pop culture and print media which are combined to create elusive narratives.

    His works seduce us into an imaginary world of juxtaposition and fantasy, a place where thecontradictions of culture and the human psyche collide. His mixed media paintings capture the

    beauty in subjects that may, at first glance, appear bl
