Collection Highlight: Felipe Jesús Consalvos

Felipe Jesús Consalvos

November 11, 2019 — February 16, 2020

Felipe Jesús Consalvos (1881-c. 1960) was born near Havana, Cuba, and spent most of his life in the United States. He worked primarily as a cigar roller, and also created hundreds of collages using cigar bands as a key material. This exhibition highlights six of Consalvos’s collages.

This exhibition is supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts. Funding was also provided by the Kohler Trust for the Arts and Education, Kohler Foundation, Inc., and the Frederic Cornell Kohler Charitable Trust. The Arts Center thanks its many members for their support of exhibitions and programs through the year.
