Friends of the Miami-Dade Public Library is pleased to announce its first annual Miami Moments, an evening celebrating extraordinary people in our cultural community. The 2012 event honors three women inextricably tied to the history of the Main Library and its ongoing support of the visual arts â€“The Libraryâ€™s Three Graces in the Arts: Margarita Cano, Helen Kohen and Barbara Young.
During the last three decades before retiring, these dedicated, amazing professionals contributed in many ways to the founding of the Libraryâ€™s renowned art collection, to its broad-reaching educational and cultural programs and to the establishment of a unique archive of the history of the visual arts in Miami, The Vasari Project.
Our special evening is at the Main Library on Friday, February 10, 2012. Guests are encouraged to wear Festive Attire and Fanciful Hats to signal their creative urges. This yearâ€™s program, Miami Moments 2012, features members of the community sharing anecdotes and stories about art at the library and commemorating the significant contribution by the eveningâ€™s honorees to our communityâ€™s cultural life. The Silent Art Auction and Contemporary Vasari Raffle include works by prominent Miami-based artists.
The eveningâ€™s program includes a self-guided tour of selections from the libraryâ€™s art collection as well as Ed Ruschaâ€™s renowned public art installation throughout the buildingâ€™s interior spaces.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
