There’s an art oasis in the desert, and you can find it on view now at the ASU Art Museum. With one of the most pervasive collections of contemporary Cuban art anywhere outside the country, ASU first showed its impressive stockpile of Cuban works in 1998, and now it has much of the art from that historic show back on view along with some new additions.

Titled “Rhythm and History,” the exhibition focuses on both Cuban roots and dreams, with about 20 pieces showcasing a variety of media including painting and sculpture and featuring such influential Cuban artists as Los Carpinteros and K’cho.

"Rhythm and History" will be on view at the ASU Art Museum, 51 East 10th Street, through Saturday, August 9. Admission for the exhibition is free. Hours on Friday, March 14, are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit the museum’s website at or call 480-965-2787.

Wednesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.; Tuesdays, 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Starts: March 1. Continues through Aug. 9, 2014
