Cuba's Ministry of Culture awarded Photography Instructor Ron Herman for 10 years of creative collaboration between photographers from Cuba and the United States. The award was given on Cuba's National Day of Culture and was presented to him by the Director of the Fototeca de Cuba, (Cuba's Photography Museum) during his recent trip to Cuba. This year marked the 10th year of Ron taking Foothill photography students to Cuba to work with Cuban photographers and engage in service learning projects. Over this 10-year period, artists from both countries have come together to share ideas and information, and these collaborations have resulted in numerous joint exhibitions and artist lectures hosted by both countries.
