Cuban American Artist honored with New USPS Stamp

Emilio Sanchez is the first Cuban American visual artist in history honored on a United States Postal Service stamp. The USPS dedicated the new series of Forever Stamps to Sanchez on the centennial anniversary of his birth in 1921. They will be released in the Summer of 2021.

The four stamps issued will reproduce four of his paintings. One of these works is Untitled (Ventanita entreabierta) from 1981, an oil and watercolor on paper. It belongs to the permanent collection of Caribbean Art at the Lowe Museum of Art in the University of Miami. 

Equally significant is that Victor Deupi a Professor of Architectural History at the University of Miami researched and wrote about Sanchez.  Deupi first learned about the Cuban visual artist when he visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art. “I had never heard of him until then, and before you know it, I began my research on Sanchez,” recounted Deupi to News@theU. 

He, along with many others at the University, is very excited about the announcement because it brings attention Cuban American art and culture. 
“It’s a wonderful honor on many fronts because it gives so many voices to people of different races and ethnic backgrounds,” explained to Deupi News@theU.

An exhibition opening next month at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, “Our America: The Latino Presence in American Art,” will highlight a chapter of art history that remains a secret to far too many Americans.

Since joining the Smithsonian in 2010, E. Carmen Ramos, the curator of Latino art at the American Art Museum, has had an ambitious mandate: to strengthen our holdings of Latino art and present that collection in a fresh way. “Our America,” which she curated, will display the results of that quest so far. It will include 92 works (by 72 artists), fully 63 of which have been acquired since 2011.

This exhibit is well represented by Cuban American Artists including Luis Cruz Azaceta, Maria Brito, Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, Teresita Fernandez, Ana Mendieta, Abelardo Morell, Maria Martinez-Cañas, Arturo Rodriguez, Emilio Sanchez, and Rafael Soriano.

Emilio Sanchez Foundation Closed

On October 2, 2012 the Emilio Sanchez Foundation closed after an eleven-year span of accomplishing its mission of promoting and preserving the legacy of the important Cuban-American Modernist artist of the 20th century, Emilio Sanchez. We are grateful to all the people who have supported, advised and helped us through the years to make this a reality. We have entrusted Sanchez’s artwork to over 70 museums and institutions, and his documents into the Archives of American Art. We hope that his work will be cherished, studied, exhibited and further brought to light.

Dr. Ann Koll has stepped down as the Executive Director and Curator of the Foundation and expresses her gratitude to the community of Sanchez supporters for the honor of working to perpetuate Sanchez’s contribution to the arts. Without her the Foundation could not have existed and achieved its goals.
