AfroCuban themed artwork by Susan Matthews will be on display in the library including part of the Secrets Under the Skin exhibit.

Hilda la Obbinisa Omo ElegguaSecrets Under the Skin is a collaborative, multi-disciplinary art installation created by seven artists that premiered December, 2010 in Havana, Cuba, and January, 2011 in Anchorage, Alaska. The installation, comprised of media, visual art, photographs and -- when possible -- live performance art and live performance, connects the ArarĂ¡ community in Perico, Cuba with a parallel religious community in Dzodze, Ghana and brings their similarities to light via art.
