New Exhibit at the Cade Museum Salutes Best of Cuban Ingenuity

History has forced Cubans to become the masters of invention. Their dilemma began in the early 1960s when the U.S. imposed a trade embargo on Cuba and soon after severed all diplomatic ties with its island neighbor. Then, in 1991, the collapse of the Soviet Union slashed Cuban imports by 80 percent, creating an even greater scarcity of everyday goods and products.
