Creative Placemaking: What’s in It for Miami?

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 at 7:00 PM - English

Recently, “placemaking” has become a buzzword among policy makers, foundations, and community activists. As public institutions reduce their involvement in the arts, culture, and education, private stakeholders have stepped in to address communities’ needs for inclusive public spaces. These spaces, ranging from small children playgrounds to entire arts districts, are ideally conceived in dialogue among communities, public policy agents, interested businesses and non-profits, and others. This panel will discuss how to activate “creative placemaking” initiatives, and how to balance communities’ mobilization (or lack thereof), the top-down approaches of policy-makers, and the profit drives of urban developers.Panelists: Dr. Ann Markusen (University of Minnesota), Victoria Rogers (Knight Foundation), Roberto Rovira (Florida International University).Moderator: Dr. Ariana Hernandez-Reguant (Tulane University)

In Process: Homecoming with Cat Garcia-Menocal

Saturday, Jun 9, 2018 from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM - English

For the final edition of the ‘Process: Homecoming’ series presented by the National YoungArts Foundation, Cat Garcia-Menocal (2008 Winner in Visual Arts) is collaborating with Amanda Krische (2012 Winner in Dance) to create “Ficciones”, a confluence of sculpture, architecture, performance that constructs a fabulation and figment about truth, the displaced body, and Home. Drawing from the likes of Gordon Matta-Clark and Jorge Luis Borges, the work presents a series of material excisions of architectures that never were. The objects implicate the body, while also challenging notions of place and the politics of truth. Surface becomes stage, the familiar becomes strangely other, and fiction creates a plausible new reality.

In Process: Homecoming is an artist residency dedicated to interdisciplinary collaboration. Providing a Miami-born alumnus/a with the time, space and resources to create work, this program encourages them to recruit other alumni outside of Miami to participate, experiment and innovate. At the conclusion of the residency, the artists showcase their work in the neighborhood where they grew up or feel most connected to, further expanding YoungArts’ programs into communities throughout the city.

Spotlight on Delray Exhibit

Jul 1, 2018 to Jul 30, 2018 - from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM - English

Spotlight on Delray provides city employees and their children with a rare opportunity to exhibit their original works publicly and to compete for City Wide recognition, complimentary tickets to Arts garage events, Arts Garage merchandise and continuing art education scholarships. The exhibit is sponsored by the Arts Garage, to celebrate the city of Delray Beach’s commitment to the Arts. The Delray Beach family is full of hidden talent and this program is a wonderful opportunity for them to showcase their artistic talent in a public exhibition. Judges of the exhibit include members of the Alliance for Delray Arts and the Public arts Advisory Board. Works are also classified under several artistic mediums, including: painting (oils, acrylics, etc.), works on paper (pencil, ink, marker, pastel, crayon, watercolor, charcoal, graphic design, etc.), photography (black-and-white or color), sculpture (in the round or relief), and craft/mixed media/pottery (jewelry, weaving, etc.).

The concept is to provide an uninhibited opportunity for all people to present their talents, at whatever level, in a public exhibition, free to artists and the public. By removing obstacles to artistic expression, the program seeks to showcase individual talent and increase the self-confidence of its participants. The exhibit is free and open to the public the entire month of July 2018, from 12 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Arts Garage is located at 94 NE 2nd Ave Delray Beach, FL 33444.
