HAVANA TIMES — Former Cuban President Fidel Castro was out in public in Havana on Wednesday evening for an art opening, reported dpa news.

Castro, 87, attended the opening of an art space in Havana’s Playa district, noted the Cubadebate official website.

The only image shown of Castro was with his back to the camera, pointing to an art installation.

The Cuban leader, retired from power since 2006, has become active in public in recent weeks after months of silence.

After nearly 8 months out of the public eye, in December the official press published photos of him at home with the Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and during a visit to him by the Franco-Spanish intellectual Ignacio Ramonet.

Castro also published an article honoring the late South African President Nelson Mandela.

The former President delegated power to his brother Raul in 2006 after suffering a severe intestinal disease. In the early years after giving up office he frequently published opinion pieces in the Cuban press, increasingly scarce in recent times.

    All you had to say, Moses, is that Raul’s appointment as president was exactly as I said. The rest of your comment is blather. You tend to make very sweeping statements. Maybe there’s something to them, but you don’t offer much convincing evidence, and your claims aren’t as obviously factual as you seem to think. And, hey! Don’t tell me what I believe. – Glen Roberts – iammyownreporter.com

    Jimmy Carter never had any intentions of stopping the U.S. war on the Cuban revolution any more than did Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush I , Clinton, Bush II and now Obama .
    You do not deal with reality.
    As for fomenting revolution : Fidel stated on at least a couple of occasions including a very early interview with PBS’s Robert MacNeil that absent the already-existing conditions necessary including a revolutionary-minded populace, you cannot start /foment a revolution and neither can you stop one once those conditions are present.
    It is why Che had to go off on his own and without help from the Cuban government in his Quixotic quest to do what Fidel has always said was impossible and which ultimately got him killed.
    You fail to learn from history.
