Venessa Monokian Conceptual Artist
Tuesday June 16 6-10 pm
Venessa Monokian is a Miami-based artist. Sheâ€™s currently an Artist-in-Residence at ArtCenter/South Florida on Lincoln Road in Miami Beach.
Monokianâ€™s particular interest is the examination of creative thought and the learning process. We are indelibly marked by our experiences in Elementary School, and this fascinates and inspires Venessa Monokianâ€™s work. The point of departure is her personal experience with academia, which has been less than fulfilling. As the investigation into this subject matter progresses Monokian has found that itâ€™s evolved from a personal critique of her own learning methods to an active inquiry into the educational experience in America at the dawn of the 21st Century.
The ArtCenter has one of the most rigorous non-profit exhibition schedules in South Florida and they continue to develop numerous art-focused programs that support the community as well as emerging artists.
Proceeds from the night will be donated by Viceroy to the ArtCenter/South Florida. Come show your support and savor the views!
