Cuban artist’s Pulse shooting memorial lands in Philly

Santiago Hermes is a Cuban native and painter who has created a series of 49 pieces of art commemorating the 49 victims of the Pulse Nightclub shooting. Twenty of them are being shown at this installation, which Hermes will open with remarks about how the attacks in Orlando impacted him, and how the LGBTQ community helped shape him as an artist. He will speak about the Trazos Libros, a program in Cienfuegos, Cuba, that brings art supplies to the underserved neighborhood.
