American Heritage Schools [ahschool.com], the top-ranked PK3 through 12 college preparatory school in Florida, is proud to announce its annual “K-9 Cause: An Evening of Art” auction benefiting the Broward Sheriff’s Foundation’s Retired Canine Relief Fund, on Saturday, April 20.

Everyone loves dogs; however, police dogs, or K-9s, are a special breed. Instead of enjoying the pampered pet lifestyle, K-9s dedicate their entire lives to working daily to protect and serve citizens in our community along with their fearless handlers. They are considered law enforcement officers, whose duties include constant training, apprehending suspects, and searching for explosives, drugs, and missing persons.

When the K-9s retire, their law enforcement handlers graciously adopt them and continue to care for them, as these K-9s have become their friends for life. Recognizing that the medical and healthcare for these K-9s can get quite costly, the Broward Sheriff’s Foundation has established the Retired K-9 Healthcare Fund. This Fund pays for up to 50% of the wellness care costs for all retired K-9s from any local law enforcement agency in Broward County.

Inspired by a little boy’s passion for animals and art, American Heritage Schools is raising money to “fund this fund” by selling artistic renditions of these fine K-9s. Jackson Laurie, a sophomore at American Heritage Schools, and his parents Dr. Douglas Laurie and Nikki Laurie-Van Allen have partnered with the National Art Honor Society and the award-winning Fine Arts faculty at American Heritage to create artwork of these very K-9 being honored.

American Heritage Schools, Broward Campus, will be hosting a Silent Auction for these original works of art, as well as a limited supply of prints for sale at our K-9 Cause event. 100% of all funds raised from this event will benefit the Broward Sheriff Foundation’s Retired K-9 Relief Fund.

Indigenous and Afro-diasporic spiritual systems have long interested internationally acclaimed artist José Bedia, who avidly collects ritualistic and ceremonial art. Bedia has traveled extensively to research and expand his knowledge of the people and the places where this art is created.

Bedia and Carol Damian, Curator of the Kislak Center, discuss how collecting and collections enhance our world view, both historically and in the present. Examining a selection of works from the Jay I. Kislak Collection at MDC and the artist’s own collection, Bedia and Damian explore the significance of these fascinating objects to our cultural history.

One of Miami’s most prominent artists, Jose Bedia was born in Havana, Cuba, and was one of the pioneering group of young artists in the groundbreaking 1981 exhibition Volumen 1, which helped spark a transformation of the Cuban cultural scene. His deep interest in indigenous American and Afro-Transatlantic cultures have led to both anthropological study and personal engagement with the religious beliefs of “La Regla Kongo” (in which he was initiated in 1983), the “Regla de Ocha,” and the Leopard Society of Abakuas. Fascinated by the African roots of American culture, Bedia has traveled widely in Africa and Latin America. His work has been exhibited around the world, including in the biennials of Havana, São Paulo, Venice, and Beijing, and is included in the collections of the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes de Cuba; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Metropolitan Museum of Art; Whitney Museum of American Art; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; Tate; Smithsonian American Art Museum; the Daros Collection; Institut Valencià d’Art Modern; Centro Atlántico de Arte Moderno; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; and the Pérez Art Museum Miami.

Dr. Carol Damian is an art historian, former Professor of Art History in the School of Art and Art History at Florida International University, and former Director and Chief Curator of the Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum at FIU. She has contributed to numerous publications and lectures frequently on Latin American and Caribbean art, and the local art scene. She is currently Curator of the Kislak Center, part of the Miami Dade College Special Collections, housed at the Freedom Tower; and of the Chapel of La Merced Colonial Collection at Corpus Christi in Miami.

Kislak Center programs are made possible with the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners. They are sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, and the National Endowment for the Arts. The Miami Herald is a media sponsor of Kislak Center programming.

During the 1970s, the photographer, editor, and philanthropist, Josefina Tarafa (born Havana, Cuba, 1907–died Miami, Florida, 1982) created an exceptional body of images that picture Miami transformed by the arrival of her fellow Cuban immigrants. The first exhibition dedicated to Tarafa’s photography, Remaking Miami includes thirty posthumous prints, made from photographs in an archive of approximately one hundred and fifty original images, now held by the Lydia Cabrera Papers at the Cuban Heritage Collection of the University of Miami Libraries.

In Cuba during the 1940s and 1950s, Tarafa worked as a documentarian, exploring national identity by photographing the architecture of nineteenth-century sugar mills and, in the company of her close friend, the anthropologist Lydia Cabera, Afro-Cuban religious rituals. Exiled, Tarafa continued her visual investigation of lo cubano (Cubanness) in Miami. By the early 1970s, the Cuban community comprised a majority of Miami’s immigrants.

Gallery hours at the Eduardo J. Padrón Campus are 10:00 AM–3:00 PM, Monday–Wednesday, and the second Saturday of every month. The exhibition is free and open to the public. For tours or any special visitor needs, please call (305) 237-7700 during museum hours or email moadinfo@mdc.edu.

Premiering January 6 through January 15, Cabaret will be Loxen’s first production in their new home, the historic ARTime Theater. The multi-Tony award-winning musical based on Christopher Isherwood’s Goodbye to Berlin, follows the adventures of a struggling American writer in 1931 Germany, where he encounters the vivacious nightclub singer Sally Bowles, a performer at the infamous Kit Kat Club. As the romance between Sally and Cliff develops, audiences watch as the declining morality in Berlin gives way to the looming rise of Nazism, just a few short years before the world would fall victim to World War II. With a book by Joe Masteroff, music and lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb, Cabaret premiered on Broadway in 1966, with the legendary Harold Prince at the helm. The work became an instant classic with multiple revivals in the intervening years.

Award-winning guitarist José Luis presents a brand new work, “Introspective.” 2020 was a year marked by a pandemic, but it also exposed a society in decline and a spiritually impoverished world that cries for change yet is not quite sure of what it wants. It has been a long time since humankind has experienced such a high degree of fragility. It seems that we have lost our North, that we are not capable of taking the reins of this absurd and sordid chaos. Introspective is born amid this absurd and surreal moment. It is born under a necessity provoked by solitude and distance and from a completely personal vision of this “new reality”, of packed trains and of empty theatre, of face masks and hand sanitizer, and confinements.

The tour and recording of “Alejandra” are tributes to the mother of guitarist, José Almarcha, who hails from La Mancha, Spain. The sudden and unexpected loss of his mother was instrumental in changing the way Mr. Almarcha composes and interprets Flamenco. “Alejandra” is a personal and intimate recording where memories reverberate within the flamenco themes that José Almarcha develops. Behind each note there are glimpses into his interior being, his personal history, his roots, and his identity. The result is an ideogram through musical sounds that evoke important memories, places, experiences, and people who left an imprint on him.

“Butterflies After the Rain”
A story about what is invisible.

Those who live in love are dangerous. They can remember what others
forget, they can fight against the improvident, they can see the
yellow butterflies that fly after the rain.

They are in short, subversives and cannot be forgiven for this.
This is, at the end, the story of a friendship between two dangerous
individuals, two urban warriors.

“The Voices of Penelope” tells the intimate untold story of the wife of Odysseus, hero of “The Odyssey”. In modern feminism, Penelope embodies one of the most traditional yet controversial female archetypes: the woman who waits. The story follows three different women in two different time periods who oscillate between love, irony, and humor only to discover that “to wait is to resist and that Time is not an enemy: it is a fellow traveler”. Written by the Spanish playwright Itziar Pascual, directed by Eugenia Sancho, and performed by actors Letty Carmona, Blanca Jara, and Eugenia Sancho.

(This performance is presented in Spanish.)

Three dynamic, powerful performers — singers, musicians, and songwriters Yusa, Inez Barlatier, and Keba— headline the concert Women of the Caribbean, a musical celebration staged outdoors, in the Koubek’s Gardens, marking the re-opening of the Koubek for limited-capacity audiences following COVID-19 guidelines.

Yusa is a Cuban multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, lyricist, arranger, and composer powerhouse. Her work suggests a deep knowledge of Cuban musical traditions such as son and trova, but updated with elements of jazz, pop, and R&B. A classical guitarist by training, Yusa specialized early on in the tres, a small six-string guitar-like instrument that is the defining sound of Cuban son, and later incorporated in her music electric bass, keyboard and percussion instruments.

The sound of Trinidad-born singer and songwriter Keba is a lived-in blend of classic soul, R&B, and pop, she mentions artists such as Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin as references, mixed with her own rhythmic sense. She has described her lyrics as a mix of “raw vulnerability with a playful exploration of love, femininity and identity as a first-generation immigrant and millennial”.

Miami’s own Haitian-American Inez Barlatier is a multi-disciplinary artist and educator. Accompanying herself on guitar, her rich, expressive voice, storytelling lyrics, and on-stage presence evokes the work of folk music-based artists such as Tracy Chapman and Joan Armatrading.

Sobre Sirena y Punto
Andrés es mi mejor amigo. Estudiamos juntos en la misma escuela, en donde a veces, otros niños nos molestan. Pasamos las tardes paseando, dibujando, leyendo e inventado historias. Entre nosotros no hay secretos y por eso el día que me revela su más grande deseo, pongo manos a la obra para ayudarlo a cumplirlo, por imposible que este parezca. Una historia entrañable sobre la complicidad, la solidaridad y la diversidad de género.

– Live Healthy Little Havana
– Miami-Dade County District 5 Commissioner Eileen Higgins
– City of Miami District 3 Commissioner Joe Carollo
– Miami Parking Authority

About Transform 5th Street:
The focus of this project is to transform SW 5th Street between SW 3rd Ave and 4th Ave in Little Havana into a fully accessible public space for all community members. The street currently separates Jose Marti Park into two isolated sections but can quickly become a space where community members can gather, community events will occur, and people feel safer and more attracted to the park overall.

Working with Little Havana residents, we are bringing a series of activities and events — all inspired by local community members — to SW 5th Street. The goal is to close the street for pedestrian and community use, as an extension of the Jose Marti Park area.

The documentary feature Nueva Venecia portrays the inhabitants of a small village in the Santa Marta marsh in Colombia, who live on the water and make a living by fishing. Their lives changed drastically on November 22, 2000, when a paramilitary group slaughtered 37 people and forced the other villagers to move out. In spite of the horror and the possibility of further acts of violence, the community eventually returned, choosing to face the hazards of new assaults rather than quit their way of life. Things did change, however, as fishing-boat memorials and ceremonies to honor the dead have become familiar, as have constant pleas to the authorities for justice. Something else keeps people together: soccer, played again on the field built on stilts, long hidden under water. Sport provides the only hope for a way out for many of the local youngsters, who dream of both social and economic improvement, and of being discovered by some scout or club agent to become Colombian soccer stars.
