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.

Last year, Venus Rising Women’s Drum & Dance Ensemble made their debut at the Miami World Festival from around the World with their performance of an “An Afro Roots Rhythmic Journey.” The presentation earned them a standing ovation and an invitation to return this year for a repeat headline slot. This year, Venus Rising will present “One Pulse – Many Beats” on October 25, 2014 at the Florida International University’s Wertheim Center for the Performing Arts Concert Hall (11200 SW 8th Street, Miami, FL 33199). The musical celebration begins at 7:30 p.m.

“We’re honored and thrilled to be performing once again at the Miami World Music Festival,” says troupe founder and leader Zeva Soroker. “Last year’s presentation focused on the rich traditions of our African roots. This year, we will be focusing on our group’s diversity through our continued exploration of the traditional music of Africa, the Caribbean, Brazil and the Middle East.” The Connecticut-born Soroker began playing drums in Jamaica and continued her studies in Guniea, West Africa. She is currently a drum instructor at the The Goddess Store in Hollywood.

The Miami World Music Festival, under the artistic direction of Dr. Adolfo Vidal, was created by the South Florida Friends of Classical Music, a non-profit organization to encourage and support classical music performances and the musical heritage of countries around the world. The annual festival features academic, traditional and contemporary music from diverse cultures performed by acclaimed world-class artists. In addition, the 2014 festival will also be presenting Michael Linville and Vidal with percussionist Fellows from the New World School of the Arts performing Two Pianos & Percussion, featuring the music of Argentina (Astor Piazzola) and Hungary (Bela Bartok).

Florida International University’s Aesthetics & Values Art Exhibition

Molina, Ralph Provisero, Carol Prusa, Onajide Shabaka, Kyle
Trowbridge, and Michelle Weinberg.

MIAMI, FL (February 04, 2014) – QR codes painted with acrylic on
canvas, to prints redefining the idea of women roles in society, to
constructed domes holding the idea of the universe. This year’s 2014
Aesthetics & Values Exhibition (A&V) will have the guests in awe when
they attend the show with the different varieties of artwork being
portrayed. Curated, funded and presented by 39 Florida International
University (FIU) Honors college students who put plenty of hours in
order to make this exhibition possible. The exhibition features works
by nine local South Florida artists with works that are mostly
contemporary. The exhibition will run from February 12th, 2014 through
March 9th, 2014 at the Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum located
on 10975 Southwest 17th Street, Miami, Florida 33199. The exhibition
is free and open to the public. The reception is on February 12th,
2014 from 6 pm to 9 pm.

“A&V has taught us that Art makes a difference in society and
challenges our ideas. In our exhibition, we want to keep stimulating
this conversation and continue to push the boundaries,” said Alisa
Pazos, Advertising major. A&V is a class like no other. There is no
other class at FIU that the student’s sole responsibility and grade is
to curate an art exhibition. That means finding the artist, fund for
the event, organize for the reception, and curating the exhibition.
The 2014 A&V Exhibition will feature the works of Ray Azcuy, Carlos
Betancourt, Tony Chirinos, Maritza Molina, Ralph Provisero, Carol
Prusa, Onajide Shabaka, Kyle Trowbridge, and Michelle Weinberg.

“The A&V honors course offers great opportunity for students to engage
in art as well as provides tremendous service to the community as it
promotes interest and knowledge in art for participating students who
become our community leaders. Art education it critical in for
maintaining a dynamic and vibrant community,” said artist Carol Prusa.
As a visual artist, she is known for her contemporary and large-scale
use of silverpoint. Her pieces consist of acrylic hemispheres, and
then she uses the technique of silverpoint drawing to create the
design on the dome.

The Honors College professor and artist that started it all, John
Bailly, has been teaching this program for nine years. The Aesthetics
and Values project is for the students to get a understanding of how
art plays in our society and the controversial issues. The vast
majority of the students in the A&V class are not art majors; they
range from Finance to Biology majors. Each student, throughout the
course, gets to meet local artist, explore the art phenomenon that is
known in Miami today, work with a selected artist, and curate an art
exhibition. “The A&V student-curators solicit the artists, curate the
works, install the artwork, fundraise and produce the catalog, and
promote this exhibition entirely themselves. Their success in
organizing this exhibition reminds us that contemporary art is a
relevant and integral part of our lives,” said Professor John Bailly.

FIU Theatre presetns: Sleeping Beauty
by Rufus Norris, Guest Director Margaret M. Ledford

This adaptation of the classic fairy tale is a wildly irreverent treat that will delight children and grown-ups alike. It focuses on Goody, the fairy who puts the famous curse on Beauty and spends the rest of the play trying to make everything turn out all right. Yes, there is a princess who pricks her finger and falls into a magic sleep, but there is also a vicious ogre mother-in-law, and ungrateful queen, and, in the center of it all, a grumpy fairy whose magic comes with stinky gas.

Tickets: $10 Students, $12 Seniors & Faculty/Staff (with ID), $15 General Admission.
