The Miami Cuban American Museum
presents the four freedoms exhibit
In honor of the Cuban American’s fight for freedom, the Miami Cuban American Museum (MCAM) is honored to showcase Norman Rockwell’s iconic Four Freedoms series as part of the museum’s Freedom Month. This exhibit will run from April 1, 2021 to April 30, 2021, in celebration of the iconic date of April 20, 1980, when the Castro regime announced that all Cubans wishing to emigrate to the U.S. were free to board boats at the port of Mariel west of Havana, launching the Mariel Boatlift. The first of 125,000 Cuban refugees from Mariel reached Florida the very next day.
MCAM is as a legacy to all of those who fought for freedom and sought freedom at any cost. This is not solely a Cuban story; it is the quintessential American story of a people who lost their freedom and their dreams and found them once again on the shores of the United
States of America. Our vision is to unite the Cuban Exile story and the American Dream to honor and preserve the gift of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and serve as a beacon of freedom for all who visit.
MCAM is a culturally-specific museum of memory, dedicated to showcasing and documenting the history, culture, and contributions of the Cuban exile community through exhibitions and programming in the arts and the humanities. MCAM tells the story of the Cuban exile, through the eyes of its greatest artists, thinkers, and creators. These artists, born outside or exiled from Cuba, have become some of the most important artists of our time. MCAM is located in the heart of Miami, minutes from Little Havana, and aims to give this story a home away from homeland.
