“Out of Many, One”, Cuban-American artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada


The Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery has commissioned Cuban-American artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada to create a six-acre portrait on the National Mall in Washington DC. The “facescape,” was created out of 2,000 tons of sand, 800 tons of soil and 8 miles of string. It is so large, that it can be viewed from space.

Titled “Out of Many, One”

Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada is a Cuban-American Contemporary Artist. Born February 5, 1966, Cuba, he grew up in the United States.
