NxtUp...Comic Art


The Gallery at the Franklin H. Williams Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI) debuts their first ever comic book exhibit, Santerians: The Art of Joe Quesada, curated by Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez of Somos Arte, a New York-based creative services firm in collaboration with Marvel Comics. CCCADI brings to the world an exhibit of illustrations bridging the gap between super heroes and spirituality, featuring the first Latin American super-hero team, the Santerians. 
In tribute to his late father, Quesada created the Santerians, based on his coming of age experiences and Cuban heritage. "I looked to my past and beyond. My hero, my Santerian leader, reflects a more modern and accurate representation of the contributions that Latinos across the spectrum are making in our world today," says Quesada.
