“I Will Die the Way I Lived,” an exhibit of 15 watercolors by Antonio Guerrero, will be hosted from March 21 to April 13 at the Beverly Arts Center, 2407 W. 111th St., Chicago, according to a press release from the center.

The opening reception is free and is scheduled for 7 to 9 p.m. March 22.

Guerrero is one of the “Cuban Five,” and one of the three still imprisoned in the United States on charges including conspiracy and failure to register as a foreign agent. Cuba officials have said the men were no threat to U.S. sovereignty, and called the long prison sentences unjust, according to The Associated Press.

Guerrero learned to draw and paint while incarcerated at the penitentiary in Florence, Colo., according to the press release from the Beverly Arts Center. The paintings in this exhibit depict the Five’s imprisonment awaiting trial in Miami, it said.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays, and 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays.
