Could Cuba get any hotter? As Americans rediscover the Caribbean island, the Wolfsonian-FIU shows how foreigners, beginning with Christopher Columbus, have always been fans. “Promising Paradise: Cuban Allure, American Seduction” exhibits rare photographs, ads and posters dating from 1959 and earlier through August 21. The bulk of its works are culled from Vicky Gold Levi’s recent major gift to the museum. Learn how Hollywood, hoteliers, gangsters and travel agencies created Cuba’s image as a fun-spirited destination to dance the rumba and mambo, sip mojitos and smoke cigars in cabarets and casinos. Music lovers shouldn’t miss costumes worn by Celia Cruz and Olga Guillot. Tonight’s preview reception from 6:30-8:30 p.m. with a Bacardi bar, naturally, allows attendees to mingle with the curators and be entertained by Cuban musicians and dancers.
