Carolina Cuevas is a Cuban-American artist currently based in the bay area. Her work carries a sense of vulnerability and displacement which is borne of the conflicting ideals of family, home, and spirituality between her mixed American and Cuban upbringing. Through her work, she conveys nationality while bridging the identities of these two seemingly disparate worlds.
Cuevas has a BFA in sculpture from the Kansas City Art Institute. Her work has been included in group exhibitions in Miami, International Ceramics Studio in Kecskemét, Hungary, and in the Kansas City Art Institute. As well as virtual shows such as The In Art Gallery. She is the recipient of several awards including the McKeown Grant, Rita and Irwin Scholarship Award, and the Ox-Bow Workshop Recipient. She recently curated the social media campaign and exhibition #LatinxTextiles and was the 2021 Artist in Residence at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles.
