The Cuban Research Institute is pleased to announce the 14th installment of its annual concert series. From the sensuality and seductive melodies of the bolero, to the exotic and complex rhythms of the mambo and cha cha, Cuba’s rich musical heritage spans centuries and has influenced most popular music of our time. Virtuoso pianists and Cuban brothers Orlay Alonso and Orlando Alonso present an immersive experience that places the audience at the center of the “Golden Era” of Cuban music and entertainment of the 1940s and 1950s. This interactive show features a variety of Cuban styles such as mambo, cha cha, salsa, bolero, son, danzón, and conga, and includes works by Celia Cruz, Ernesto Lecuona, Ignacio Cervantes, Miguel Faílde, and Dámaso Pérez Prado, among others.

Equally talented, the Alonso Brothers brothers dazzle with their artistic exuberance and passionate expression. Having played the piano since they each were six years old, Orlando Alonso and Orlay Alonso both attended the National School of the Arts in Havana and earned degrees from Manhattan School of Music and Yale University, among several prestigious institutions. As a duo, each brother brings his own signature style to the stage. Inspired by their communicative gifts, elegance, and polish, the Alonso Brothers shine with a charismatic stage presence that is a pleasure to behold.

Brillhart Architecture is borne out of a love for and facility with “making” things. In the natural course of development, tectonics, materiality and the logic of construction have become a primary focus of interest. Relying on a back-to-basics approach, we often study old models for future buildings, marrying archetypes and prototypes with new materials, fabrication and construction assemblies – all the while placing heavy emphasis on process as a means of furthering creativity and invention. The goal is to create a contemporary and dynamic building vocabulary that resuscitates the Ancient, celebrates the Modern, and foresees an architecture without big style.

Though the firm works on a diverse range of projects – including commercial and residential architecture as well as exhibitions, interiors, furniture, and other speculative research projects – a pragmatic building vocabulary, emphasis on tectonic potential, and ideas of craftsmanship are the common threads that link each project together.

The office also embraces a very hands-on, “knowledge-how” ethos that extends beyond design. Engaged in low-budget competitions, installations, and personal endeavors (such as our house) early on, we grew our firm by conceiving, designing, fabricating, assembling and constructing many things ourselves. In simply having to figure things out, we have become highly resourceful: regularly collaborating with outside disciplines; learning to maximize structural and material efficiencies; and seeking creative solutions to details that may be outside the industry defaults.

As a result, the firm has won numerous awards for design innovation, including AIA awards in 2008 and 2010, and competition winnings. Work has been featured in the New York Times, Wallpaper, Metropolis, Design Bureau, and the Miami Herald. Custom furniture pieces have also been included in the annual design show, Inventory, held during Design Miami and Art Basel.

The firm was founded by Jacob Brillhart in 2005, after he completed his Masters in Architecture from Columbia University. Jacob complements his practice by teaching design, freehand drawing, and architectural theory as an Assistant Professor at the University of Miami School of Architecture. A Gabriel Prize finalist in 2006 and 2007 and a finalist for the 2010 Rome Prize in Architecture, Brillhart has also served as the Favrot Visiting Assistant Professor at Tulane University.

The 5Es in Leadership

Lecture Abstract:

Explain, through personal experiences, how effective leaders balance the 5Es:

Envision: imagine the “possible” future – to change the rules of the game
Engage: gain the enrolment and commitment of the team
Energize: inspire people to deliver the future
Enable: build people’s capabilities to achieve better results
Execute: make things happen through Strategy, People and Operations.

Participants leave inspired with simple, but potent, leadership concepts which can enable “anyone” to be a leader (when required).

Florida International University proudly presents the opening reception for the Solo exhibition of Miami artist Nate Dee. The exhibition will feature new works as when as pieces from his quote series of paintings.

Born and raised in South Florida, Nathan Delinois (Nate Dee) has numerous influences… this includes his Haitian background and the use of color in a lot of Haitian art, as well as in street art. The design quality of the Art Nouveau movement and the drama of Greek art from the Hellenistic. These elements can be seen in his work. Additionally, he takes some influences from the pop surrealists.

He has been featured in magazines such as Delve, Making Waves, WeMerge, DUO & the Miami New Times. In 2014 The New Times listed him as one of the 10 Miami Artists to follow on Instagram. In 2013 he was also given an Honorable mention by the magazine for their 2013 Miami Masterminds awards. He’s been featured on multiple blogs and has displayed his work in exhibits throughout South Florida.

Artist Statement
The series that I am working in is similar to a potpourri with a mélange of images and patterns. Usually based on a figurative element that is the focal point, the images and patterns are representative of my personal experiences, ideas, and philosophies. Although each piece is usually a direct response to the text contained with in, I still try to keep the actual meaning as ambiguous as possible. I want the viewer to find his or her own meaning and relationship to the artwork. At first glance there is a sense of whimsy in my work that is grounded by its urban visual elements.
