Detainees at the United States military prison camp known as Guantánamo Bay have made art from the time they arrived. The exhibit will display some of these evocative works, made by men held without trial, some for nearly 15 years, who paint the sea again and again although they cannot reach it. 

Free and open to all. Enter at 899 10th Avenue (at 59th Street) and sign in at the security desk with a photo ID. The President's Gallery is on the 6th floor of Haaren Hall.
