The House of Culture Bonifacio Byrne, in the city of Matanzas, hosts the Provincial Hall, where the palm grows, with 60 drawings of children and adolescents, inspired by José Martí, who strengthen the links between history and art.
Javier Alberto Bolaño, director of the Provincial Center of Houses of Culture in Matanzas, commented that the Hall is a sample of the actions based on keeping the legacy of the National Hero of Cuba, one of the great thinkers of Latin America, alive in the new generations.

Yanet Martín González, an art instructor with a relevant job in getting 19 of her students to be awarded in the contest, commented that the drawings emerged as an expression of the activities of the Caminos plastic arts workshop, in the municipality of Cárdenas.
Martín González added that in the 35 infants with whom he works, he seeks not only the development of painting-related skills but also that they learn to work in groups and express values such as responsibility and solidarity.
Dashanti Madruga Hernández, one of the pioneers whose work is exhibited in the House of Culture Bonifacio Byrne, commented that in his proposal he represents the ideas and expressiveness of Martí, for which he consulted the works of the Apostle as inspiration.
Until December 28th, the winning works at the provincial level will be exhibited at the Bonifacio Byrne House of Culture in the contest Where the Palm Grows, a contest that validates the right of new generations to create and enjoy the arts.
