Impact and Legacy: 50 Years of the CINTAS Foundation, at MDC Museum of Art + Design, Miami. -The legacy of Oscar B. Cintas has fostered the development of Cuban artists outside of Cuba for the last 50 years, promoting the professional development of these artists and the continuity of Cuban traditions in art. The foresight Cintas has resulted in more than 300 fellowships and grants awarded to creative writers, architects, composers, visual artists and filmmakers, many of whom have later achieved national and international renown. The roster of Cintas fellows is a testament to the talent and creativity of the Cubans and their direct descendants who have lived outside the island since 1959. The Cintas Foundation is the oldest entity in the United States dedicated to the support of artists of the Cuban diaspora.
