ABOUT

Who we are and what we do

Copperbridge Foundation (CBF) is a Miami-based 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization with a mission to promote cultural and educational exchange through the medium of artistic expression.
The foundation was formed to serve the public by building a cultural ‘bridge’ using art to unite people of different backgrounds, religions, and beliefs.

 

CBF creates platforms for people to exhibit and interpret art from a broad range of Caribbean, African, North and South American cultures with a special emphasis on Cuba. Given the island nation’s proximity to Florida, Cuba has an incalculable impact as a cultural muse.

 

Travel the Copperbridge in a multicultural journey that recognizes we are one world and, through art, great things can and will coalesce into a more harmonious place for all.
