A note I found on the Net...a little late but not too late; since the Mariel boatlift was a mass exodus of Cubans who departed from Cuba's Mariel Harbor for the United States between April 15 and October 31, 1980.

Remembering El Mariel 30 years later
A group exhibit, featuring artists, who came via El Mariel boatlift 30 years ago. Some were children then, others adults, but all have one thing in common, besides being artists … all are Marielitos…
