You don't get to be almost 150 years old without knowing your product and the people who use it, and with this initiative, Colores Latinos;Artistas Latinos , Sherwin Williams proves why it gets a definite ESO!!! For a full background on this, the above link with the NBC news release will give you detalles, pero Babushka will give you the visual and the sabor!
We were greeted by the impassioned and irrepressible Susana Baker, private curator and owner of TheArtExperiences who whisked us away to the Wynwood Art District . The first stop on our bus tour was the Center of Visual Communications, a blue chip gallery whose director Barry Fellman graciously showed us the works of Iconic American photographer Clyde Butcher in his series of black and white photos showcasing Cuba. Call me biased, but even without color the richness of the island and it's intoxicating beauty is very evident.

As I said in the beginning, you don't stay in business for over a century if you don't know your product and the people who use it. The colors of life for Latinos isn't only in art, it's in every aspect of our worlds and cuisine is definitely a big part of it. This too Susana Baker and Sherwin-Williams understand, so the next part of this adventure was fine dining.
Quee?? JU SO FONII!!! Ok si, BB was still a little llena from the gallery appetizers, pero if the food was 1/2 the caliber of the rest of the tour, Babushka will always be able to make room. And you My Beautifuls, I hope you make room to read the following posts in this series. Yes, it will be a series of posts because this is one sponsor who "gets us" and touched me in many ways, in aspects so sublime yet meaningful that I must return the appreciation they showed us. So until then,
