May 4 Milwaukee Opening of Gerardo Hernandez’ “Humor From My Pen”

“Humor From My Pen”

The Political Cartoons and Prison Cell of Gerardo Hernandez
Opening May 4 at Dominion Gallery — 7 pm
804 E. Wright St., Milwaukee
Gerardo Hernandez is one of the ‘Cuban Five,’ who since 1998 have been collectively serving a total of four life sentences plus 77 years in U.S. penitentiaries for blowing the whistle on “anti-Castro” terrorists operating out of Miami. Former President Jimmy Carter and ten Nobel laureates – along with grass-roots committees in scores of countries – have called for the Five’s unconditional release. Gerardo (sentenced to more than two life terms) has already spent 13 years in prison – two of them in solitary confinement. What’s more, he’s been denied any and all visits from his family. Yet his unyielding response is one of art and humor – presented here in 32 pieces along with a full-sized replica of his prison cell. For more on the Cuban 5, please visit www.thecuban5.org.

Friday, May 4, at 7:00 pm.
