“Miami Stories” of Cuban Exiles: Madeline Talles Menendez

Watch Madeline Talles Menendez share her Cuban exile story at Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM).

PAMM, HistoryMiami Museum, and WLRN are partnering on a special project to preserve and record the history of Cuban exiles living in South Florida, in connection with PAMM’s latest exhibition, On the Horizon: Contemporary Cuban Art from the Jorge M. Pérez Collection.

Inspired by HistoryMiami Museum’s “Miami Stories” program, the collaboration invites members of the Cuban exile community to share their personal memories and experiences at a series of upcoming PAMM Free Second Saturdays events. HistoryMiami and WLRN will be on site during the events with a recording booth, operated by an interviewer asking a series of questions, to capture voices from Miami’s Cuban exile community.

“Miami Stories” at PAMM’s Free Second Saturdays will take place from 1-4pm on October 14, November 11, February 10 and March 10.
