Funding Arts Broward (FAB!), a nonprofit volunteer-based arts organization committed to supporting, sustaining and enriching the arts in Broward County, will present its Spring Luncheon and Annual Meeting on Tuesday, March 10, from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at Broward Center for the Performing Arts. The luncheon will feature special guest speaker Lourdes Lopez, artistic director of Miami City Ballet. A Q & A with the company’s dancers will follow the presentation.
Lourdes Lopez was recently named one of “The Most Influential People in Dance Today” by Dance magazine. She became artistic director of Miami City Ballet in 2012, bringing with her a nearly 40-year career in dance, television, teaching and arts management. Under Lopez’s direction, Miami City Ballet has become one of the country’s premier ballet companies.

As a soloist and principal dancer with New York City Ballet, Lopez danced for two legends of the art form, George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins. Lopez is a former WNBC-TV cultural arts reporter and senior faculty member and director of student placement, student evaluation and curriculum planning at New York’s Ballet Academy East. She served on the dance faculty of Barnard College and guest taught at numerous dance institutions and festivals in the United States. In 2002, she became the executive director of the George Balanchine Foundation, and subsequently co-founded The Cuban Artists Fund, which supports Cuban and Cuban-American artists in their endeavors. In 2007 she received an award from the American Immigration Law Foundation honoring Cuban Americans for their accomplishments and contributions to American society. Lopez also co-founded Morphoses with Christopher Wheeldon in 2007 — a New York-based dance company aiming to revitalize dance through innovative collaborations with important artists from the worlds of music, visual arts, design, film and fashion; and by inviting younger and broader audiences to engage in and actively experience dance.

In 2014 Lopez was elected to serve on the Ford Foundation’s board of trustees, marking the first time an artist was elected to serve on its board and in 2011, she received the prestigious Jerome Robbins Award for her years in dance. She has served as a dance panelist for the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is celebrating Black History Month with singer and violinist, Nicole Yarling, as part of its monthly “Jazz at MOCA” series on Friday, Feb. 28. Yarling is a rising star in the jazz community with her velvet voice, high technical skills and energetic personality.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Yarling grew up in a musical family where her musical taste was inspired by her father, who plays both the jazz organ and piano. Beginning at the age of nine, Yarling would play the violin with her father which inspired her to perform live. Yarling’s received an extensive musical education which included graduating with a B.A. in Music from Baruch College and then receiving a Master’s in music education from Columbia University. She also received private training in composition, arranging, voice and violin.

Additionally, Art Prevails Project will host a spoken word element with four poets performing original works inspired by moments in black history. Art Prevails Project is a performing and literary arts organization committed to impacting South Florida and beyond by providing engaging and authentic artistic and cultural experiences through performance and education while utilizing a multidisciplinary approach rooted in theatre and creative writing, to entertain, educate, and inspire.

Guests will also enjoy a special dance performance by MaryAnn Benjamin and choreographed by Fluxus Haus founder, Agatha Wright.

Visitors are encouraged to pass by the Bookleggers pop-up library and pick up a free book. Bookleggers mission is to permeate Miami with books. Through public access points, programming, and installations that place books in unexpected spaces, Bookleggers creates dynamic artistic and cultural experiences that increase book access and serve as a conduit for community exchange.

Also on view is HamacaS, a socially engaged project by Liene Bosquê, coordinated by Ana Clara Silva, on view from February 8 through March 29, 2020. HamacaS explores the cultural dissonance and emotional displacement experienced by immigrants in the United States. The project consists of an interactive installation at the museum that will be activated through collective hammock weaving sessions and workshops. The project will offer a critical and expansive conversation around immigration with communities in Miami.

Café Crème will host a bar with a signature MOCA cocktail and the US Census will be on-site distributing giveaways. Guests will also enjoy a pop-up photo booth and more.

The public is invited to enjoy extended activities beginning at 7:00 pm and the vibrant sounds of Nicole Yarling at 8:00 p.m., rain or shine.

This event is sponsored in part by the North Miami Community Redevelopment Agency.

Guests may also walk through MOCA’s two exhibitions, Cecilia Vicuña’s “About to Happen” and Alice Rahon’s “Poetic Invocations.” Cecilia Vicuña’s “About to Happen” traces the Chilean artist’s career-long commitment to exploring discarded and displaced materials, peoples and landscapes in a time of global climate change. The late French-Mexican surrealist painter Alice Rahon’s “Poetic Invocations” aims to contribute to the scholarship and recognition of under-explored women artists, and to the intercultural influences on European artists in exile in the Americas, whose work was often deeply marked by indigenous and archaic cultures. Both exhibitions are on view through March 29, 2020.

Sobre Sirena y Punto
Andrés es mi mejor amigo. Estudiamos juntos en la misma escuela, en donde a veces, otros niños nos molestan. Pasamos las tardes paseando, dibujando, leyendo e inventado historias. Entre nosotros no hay secretos y por eso el día que me revela su más grande deseo, pongo manos a la obra para ayudarlo a cumplirlo, por imposible que este parezca. Una historia entrañable sobre la complicidad, la solidaridad y la diversidad de género.

Venezuelan filmmaker Carla Forte trained initially as a dancer — her dance video works have been featured in countless festivals and galleries internationally. In her new film, she draws on her expertise about the about the demanding rehearsal process and fuses it with her unique storytelling style to create an unforgettable dynamic between two characters immersed in the creative process.

A director and an actress rehearse for a play called “Rabbit.” As they rehearse in total isolation and in increasingly grueling circumstances, two stories begin to develop and intertwine: the creation of a character, and the daily lives of those involved in its creation. Psychological abuse and mistreatment by the director soon bring the actress to a point where her deepest desires merge into the character she represents: the rabbit.

This screening is sponsored by HBO, FlixLatino and ViendoMovies Available with Xfinity. Bistoury Physical Theatre and 44Films present this feature film produced by Claudia Lepage, Alexey Tarán and Malena González. Directed by Carla Forte, this film features Francisco Denis and Malena González.

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will host its 25th annual History Makers fundraiser on Tuesday, March 31, at 6 p.m., at the Superyacht Pavilion facility on the south grounds of Pier Sixty-Six Hotel & Marina (2301 SE 17th Street in Fort Lauderdale). This year’s honorees are The Denison Family (Broward Marine), Broward County yachting industry forerunners, who will receive a History Makers Pioneer Family Award and the Marine Industries Association of South Florida (MIASF), which will be honored with a Legacy Business Award for its 60 years of industry and service at the event that commends individuals and companies who have made an impact on the growth of the City of Fort Lauderdale. Previous History Maker honorees have included The Forman Family, “Alligator Ron” Bergeron, City Commissioner Steven Glassman, developer Dev Motwani, H. Wayne Huizenga, Chris Evert and Jimmy Evert, The Sun-Sentinel, Winterfest and Susan and Buddy Lochrie.

The Denison’s company, Broward Marine, and its workforce, were largely responsible for much of the marine industry that developed over the course of their 50 years of yacht construction that started on the south fork of the New River in Fort Lauderdale. In 1948, on their honeymoon, Frank and Gertrude Denison decided to buy a boat yard on the New River and shortly, thereafter, became the largest employer in Broward County, as well as the largest defense contractor in Florida. The contracts they secured for the construction of US Navy minesweepers during this time period led to the construction of large motor yachts. The Denison’s yachting business, launched in the early 1950s with the construction of the largest yacht built in the US, post WWII, the ALISA V, eventually led them to become most prolific large yacht builder in the world in 1993. The first of only two yacht builders in the US to have received this recognition.

The Marine Industries Association of South Florida (MIASF) is the largest marine trade organization in the Southeast United States dedicated to promoting, protecting, and growing the 111,000 middle class jobs in Broward County and 142,000 jobs regionally in marine businesses promoting boating lifestyles from family cruising and fishing to yachts and the goods and services that sustain them, driving the economic output to $8.9 billion in Broward County and $12 billion regionally. Created in 1961, the nonprofit trade group is focused on the sound growth of the marine industry in the South Florida Region to benefit its members, their customers, communities and the environment. The Association has over 500 members in Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach Counties and is the owner of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Through the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, advocacy efforts, programs and services of MIASF have combined to raise the professionalism of the industry and awareness of its impact and contributions by the public, elected, and regulatory officials at the local, state, and federal levels. Members have fostered a reputation for the region to be known as the goods and service center of the world for the yachting and marine community.

This year’s event will also celebrate the city’s 109th birthday with cocktails, food stations and entertainment.

Tickets for this year’s 25th anniversary History Makers fundraiser are $100 (online service charges not included) and can be purchased online at http://bit.ly/HFLHistoryMakers2020 or via email at info@flhc.org. Tickets are limited.

South Florida JAZZ at Bailey Hall presents the Latin Grammy Award-Winner and Flute Virtuoso NESTOR TORRES QUINTET, Saturday, February 15 at 8:00 PM. With his unique style, Puerto Rican flutist Nestor Torres will delight his audience on a magical night in which his unique sound will take them on a journey of Nestor’s greatest successes throughout his musical career. From mainstream jazz, R&B to Latin classics, Torres promises to present a musical kaleidoscope that makes each of his presentations variegated. Torres who is a native of Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, resides in both Miami and Los Angeles, and mentions that 2020 is loaded with new projects, including the release of a new classical music album, which is being produced by the Uruguayan GRAMMY-winning conductor and composer José Serebrier and Julio Bague, vice president of Peermusic. The release of a single is also approaching, where he had a special alliance with the Dominican reggaetonero Mafio, with whom Torres balances his flute skills. He will also be releasing an album of collaborations with important Latin artists in what he calls an avant-garde production.

According to Dr Ron Weber, South Florida JAZZ president and artistic director, “Nestor has retained his Caribbean roots, while exploring jazz in its many forms with intriguing fusions with other genres. While his early inspirations were Dave Brubeck, Tito Puente and Cal Tjader, his early heroes were the classical flute icons Jean Pierre Rampal and his literal ‘man with the golden flute’ successor, James Galway. Beyond them, his influences include Cuban legend Richard Egües, and jazz greats Herbie Mann and Hubert Laws.”

Bailey Hall is located on the A. Hugh Adams Central Campus at 3501 SW Davie Rd. in Davie and offers free parking. Subscriptions and individual tickets are available by visiting southfloridajazz.org, www.baileyhall.org or contacting the Bailey Hall box office at (954) 201-6884.

Cost: Free

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is presenting “HamacaS,” a socially engaged project by Liene Bosquê, coordinated by Ana Clara Silva, on view from February 8 through March 29, 2020. HamacaS explores the cultural dissonance and emotional displacement experienced by immigrants in the United States. The project consists of an interactive installation at the museum that will be activated through collective hammock weaving sessions and workshops. The project will offer a critical and expansive conversation around immigration with communities in Miami. As an integral part of the project, HamacaS will continue to develop and be presented throughout different locations in Miami after its inaugural run at MOCA North Miami.

HamacaS reconsiders the relational meaning of site and place for a group of people that both occupy several spaces at once and are rendered invisible in this country. The project asks us to imagine how immigrants carry place with them across borders and barriers. What purpose can a collective, shared space have for members of a community that is both villainized and erased at the same time? HamacaS is meant to act as a safe space for dialogue, debate, and understanding through engaging in making––the space between the hand and the mind that offers respite.

Liene Bosquê is a visual artist and art educator based in Miami. Bosquê’s artworks have been exhibited in museums and galleries in the United States, at MoMA PS1 in New York, and the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, among other places. In 2016, she received the Emerging Artist Fellowship from the Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens, where she presented her first public sculpture. Recently, Bosquê was an artist in residence at Queens Museum’s ArtBuilt residency in New York, where she started the socially engaged project, HamacaS. Her work has been included in international exhibitions in Brazil, Portugal, Italy, Turkey, and South Korea; at places such as Museu de Historia Natural in Lisbon, Museu de Arte de Ribeirão Preto, and Sesc in São Paulo.

HamacaS is funded by The Ellies, Miami’s visual arts awards, presented by Oolite Arts as well as the WaveMaker Grants program presented by Locust Projects, and is supported by The55project.

The project will maintain public hours on Saturdays and Sundays from 2:00-4:00 p.m. The artist will be onsite on 2/8, 2/9, 2/15, 2/16, 2/29, 3/1, 3/7, 3/8, 3/21, 3/22, 3/28 and 3/29 and welcomes the public to come participate.

On Wednesday, March 11, from 7:00-9:00 p.m., there will be a screening of 16mm film and digital video on the subject of weaving and culture surrounding this age-old craft. Screening to be followed by HamacaS artist Liene Bosquê and project coordinator Ana Clara Silva in conversation. The event is free and open to the public.

Guests are invited to a closing reception on Sunday, March 29 from 12:00-3:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will honor the contributions and creativity of our African American community during its annual Black History Month celebration. This year’s events will include the global launch/book signing of “From My Jamaican Gully to the World,” a memoir, by writer and environmentalist Audrey Wright Peterman on Tuesday, February 4 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

Living on their sailboat at Cooley’s Marina just west of History Fort Lauderdale, Audrey Peterman and her husband Frank wrote and spoke prolifically for seven years about the environmental challenges and opportunities facing South Florida and the nation. The Petermans have been advocates for the protection of America’s National Parks and publicly-owned lands for more than two decades. They have successfully challenged land managers and successive administrations to do more to include Americans of color as visitors, employees and supporters. In “From My Jamaican Gully to the World,” Peterman writes about the formative influences in the Jamaican countryside that gave her the confidence to continue to work to make change in the environmental sector. Going back to her roots, Peterman delves into “old time” Jamaica in a way that will delight audiences that remember those day and intrigue those for whom they are new. The book is a memoir, a history of the environmental movement from the perspective of a Black leader, and a guide to positively influence our response to the climate crisis. Peterman’s efforts have been recognized with various awards including Environmental Hero Award 2000 from Vice President Al Gore and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Outstanding Citizen Advocate Award from the National Parks Conservation Association, (1998) and the Lifetime Achievement Award from Outdoor Afro, (2017.)

Additionally, History Fort Lauderdale will host a Dillard Center for the Arts’ Advanced Placement (AP) student exhibition and sale. Visitors of all ages are also encouraged to view the new “The Bryans of Fort Lauderdale” permanent exhibit which allows guests to experience the story of the City of Fort Lauderdale as told through the pioneer family that shaped its development from an agricultural outpost in 1896 to a bustling city in the 1920s to its current status as a leading Metropolis, “Juliette Lange: A Portrait of a Mezzo Soprano,” a fashion and lifestyle glimpse of the socially prominent Fort Lauderdale resident with a lauded career as a star vocalist of musical comedy, plus “Archaeology of the New River” and a multitude of narratives and photos sharing the history of other founding families of Fort Lauderdale. The nonprofit museum also hosts a variety of yearly multicultural exhibits highlighting Caribbean, Latinx and women artists sharing their views of history.

The book signing is free. Entry to the show and sale is included with general admission – $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is always free for members, military and children ages six and under.
