FROM: Andrea Preston
Visual Art Chairperson
Miami Arts Charter School
Hello everyone! I’m pleased to announce that student artwork from Miami Arts Charter School will be on display at the Ritz Carlton, Miami Beach on Nov. 12th. Part of the “Globes on Lincoln” project, we have created conceptual works of art that consider the 100 year history of Miami Beach. This outstanding public art event is being directed and created by architect Deborah Desilets, local legend in the arts and former colleague of Morris Lapidus. There will be ongoing events, culminating in the installation of our kids’ art on the “globes” (the cement spheres that block traffic on Lincoln Rd) later in the year. The Ritz Carlton event is our major press event and kick-off party.
Join us, Nov. 12th, 2009. An evening of art, education, and inspiration! Parents, teachers, artists welcome! Times and Directions will be sent as soon as that information is finalized.
