This documentary examines the way in which artistic expression and exhibition relates to and also influences community development. Scissors and Glue – The Miami Project dares to ask,
Which is more powerful, cultures influence on art or arts influence on culture?
Scissors and Glue – The Miami Project follows Helmut Schuster on his journey from gallery owner in Berlin to the founding of his new Gallery Schuster in Miamis Wynwood district. Drawing inspiration from Miamis recent art renaissance, this film uses his experiences to illustrate the international draw of the citys art scene. Scissors and Glue – The Miami Project features discussions with many of Miamis art community members including: Bonnie Clearwater (MOCA), Rosa De La Cruz, Thea Goldman, David Lombardi, Thomas Collins (MAM), Jason Rubell (The Rubell Family Collection), Terry Riley, Dennis Scholl (The Knight Foundation and World Class Boxing), Silvia Karman Cubina (Bass Museum), Katherine Hinds (The Margulies Collection at the Warehouse), Constance Margulies (The Lotus House), Craig Robins, Fred Snitzer, and many more.
