Libby said one of the most important paintings is The Family of Jose Marti, by Johann Culverhouse.

While the book only highlights art created prior to Fidel Castros rise in 1959, Libby said its important to understand how government influenced artists during the two periods. The collection has even more importance as the U.S. and Cuba take steps to improve relations, he added.
This tries to begin a discussion using art into the culture of Cuba and what it means to be Cuban, Libby said.

Gary Libby, director emeritus of the Museum of Arts & Sciences in Daytona Beach, is pictured in the Focus Gallery at the University of Florida. The gallery will soon be renamed in his honor.
...
So much so that Libby said goodbye to law and medicine and pursued a career in the arts, arts education and arts administration. Now the University of Floridas School of Art + Art History is renaming its Focus Gallery as the Gary R. Libby Gallery.
The honor is in recognition of the philanthropy and ongoing support of Libby, a UF news release said.
The announcement was a big surprise, said Libby, a Daytona Beach resident. Its a wonderful thrill. It makes you feel that everything youve done has been appreciated.
While Libby served 25-plus years as director of the Museum of Arts & Sciences in Daytona Beach, he also supported and served as an advocate for his alma mater, especially its arts programs. That support includes a previous $100,000 gift, a recent $100,000 gift and a transformational estate gift, said a university spokeswoman.
Libby is very dedicated to education, said Amy Vigilante, director of UFs University Galleries.
...
Its very fitting for Gary.
Libbys recent gift will allow Focus Gallery, one of UFs three on-campus art galleries, to expand its offerings to also include alumni shows and more formal shows than weve had in the past, said Vigilante, who considers Libby to be a mentor.
...
The opening of the gallery at the University of Florida it opened all of these experiences for me, Libby said.
...
Libby, 70, still serves as director emeritus of the Museum of Arts & Sciences. He also is past president of the Florida Art Museum Directors Association and former secretary of the Florida Association of Museums, which honored him with its Lifetime Achievement Award in 1998.
As an art historian, Libbys books include a new edition of Cuba: A History in Art, Reflections: Paintings of Florida 1865-1965 and Reflections II: Watercolors of Florida 1835-2000.

Gary Libby, executive director of the Museum of Arts and Sciences and a member of the Main Street Redevelopment Area advisory board, puts it this way: "The challenge is to find a balance, a formula, that keeps the business community happy but not at the expense of everyone else.I think we can do that."
Libby foresees compromises that buffer residential neighborhoods from commercial corridors; allow driving on some, but not all, sections of the beach; orient tall buildings from east to west to keep sunlight and ocean air flowing toward residences; and ensure plenty of green spaces between tall buildings.
...
Libby and attorney Burnett say they believe new Daytona Beach City Manager Jim Chisholm will provide badly needed leadership.
...
"He might have the skills, knowledge and talent we need," Libby says.
