Besides cigars and classic cars, U.S. collectors look to Cuba for one more thing — Cuban art

LatinaLista — Ever since the announcement that the United States was starting the process of normalizing relations with Cuba, Americans have been salivating for two things: Cuban cigars and the classic cars that stream along the island nation’s roads.

But there’s one more thing that aficionados are hoping will be in great demand on the mainland — Cuban art.

Agence-France Presse, found that U.S. art collectors are already counting down the days till Cuban artists can sell their work to American buyers. However, some artists feel that the relaxed relationship between the two countries will be a double-edge sword — bringing more demand for their works could cause a reduction in quality in trying to keep up with that demand.

However, it’s a risk that Cuban artists can’t wait to accept.
