Historical Context:
This piece was purchased from Cuban artist Alvaro Almaguer during a relief effort and cultural exchange program involving the Grand Valley State University's Men's Baseball team. In 2012 the baseball team traveled to Havana, Cuba to play baseball and donate their time and used sporting goods to children of the community in need. The trip was supported financially in large part by First Hand Aid, a Grand Rapids-based charity organization dedicated to providing medical aid and supplies to residents of Cuba with aims to breakdown perceived cultural barrier between citizens of the United States and Cuba and to extend positiveness and acceptance cross-culturally.
