Lissa Barber, twice a member of a US Women and Cuba Collaboration delegation, brings her training as a portrait photographer, as well as her journalism education and, finally, her appreciation for fine photojournalism into her "street photography" approach to the images in her exhibit "From Cuba with Love." Her images portray the people and places in Cuba that she encountered in her two recent visits to the country. This art show also includes "Engaging Cuba" by Bozemen photographer Jelani Mahiri.
