The exhibition walk-thru will be Friday, Dec. 11 at 3:30pm.

Also this evening, “Censorship in the Arts,” a panel discussion, organized in collaboration with Phillip Church, FIU professor and director of the FIU Alternative Theatre, will take place at 7pm.

Church, Moderator; Joseph Adler, Artistic Director, GableStage; Patrick de Bokay, Executive Director, Miami World Cinema Center; Marina Pareja, FIU Theatre Dept; Michael Yawney, FIU Assistant Professor, Resident Dramaturg.
