In its second year, the festival, curated by Charo Oquet, takes place in Miami’s Design District and the Miami Beach Botanical Garden and runs through the month of June.</p> Tue, 18 Jun 2013 10:30:00 +0000 Neil de la Flor 15600 at http://blog.wlrn.org Miami Performance International Festival Aims To Make Working Artists Accessible Miami Filmmaker Opens The Screening Room To Promote Video As An Art Form http://blog.wlrn.org/post/miami-filmmaker-opens-screening-room-promote-video-art-form <p>Video as an art form has come a long way. Although artists started seriously working with the medium at least a half century ago (some will pinpoint Nam June Paik’s German exhibition in 1963 as its official arrival on the scene), it remained somewhat the stepchild, not getting a lot of respect until the last couple decades. And in Miami, video art – good video art – was late in taking hold with local artists and in shows. That’s changed dramatically in recent years, and yet there have been few outlets dedicated to highlighting the form.</p> Wed, 12 Jun 2013 10:30:00 +0000 Anne Tschida 15203 at http://blog.wlrn.org Miami Filmmaker Opens The Screening Room To Promote Video As An Art Form Spanish Cultural Center Offers Look At U.S. Latin Life http://blog.wlrn.org/post/spanish-cultural-center-offers-look-us-latin-life <p></p><p>CCEMiami (Centro Cultural Español en Miami), the Spanish cultural arm here, often falls of the radar when it comes to the arts. Since moving into the bustling downtown area on Biscayne Boulevard (from its sometimes forbidding building in the Gables), it may be that some people simply don’t know they are there. Time to rediscover.</p><p>The center offers up some impressive and diverse cultural events, including music and theater – the latter includes their innovative Microtheater, “small” plays of about 15 minutes, set up in the back courtyard for only about 15 spectators.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 03 Jun 2013 17:43:31 +0000 Anne Tschida 14774 at http://blog.wlrn.org Spanish Cultural Center Offers Look At U.S. Latin Life Live Arts Lab Seeks To Help Mid-Career Artists Advance http://blog.wlrn.org/post/live-arts-lab-seeks-help-mid-career-artists-advance <p></p> Wed, 29 May 2013 12:25:00 +0000 Neil de la Flor 14357 at http://blog.wlrn.org Live Arts Lab Seeks To Help Mid-Career Artists Advance Miami Herald Honors Students With Silver Knight Awards http://blog.wlrn.org/post/miami-herald-honors-students-silver-knight-awards <p><span style="color: rgb(26, 39, 50); font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 19px; text-align: left; ">Many of this year’s Miami Herald Silver Knight winners are well-acquainted with adversity — through their own families’ personal heartaches or the struggles of those living halfway around the world.</span></p> Thu, 23 May 2013 16:12:09 +0000 Michael Vasquez 14539 at http://blog.wlrn.org Miami Herald Honors Students With Silver Knight Awards INKarnation Weaves Two Artists Together At Bridge Red Studios http://blog.wlrn.org/post/inkarnation-weaves-two-artists-together-bridge-red-studios <p></p><p></p> Thu, 23 May 2013 11:46:00 +0000 Anne Tschida 14109 at http://blog.wlrn.org INKarnation Weaves Two Artists Together At Bridge Red Studios Miami Theater Center Redefines Itself With "Inanna and the Huluppu Tree" http://blog.wlrn.org/post/miami-theater-center-redefines-itself-inanna-and-huluppu-tree <p></p><p></p><p>The&nbsp;<a href="http://mtcmiami.org/" target="_blank">Miami Theater Center</a>&nbsp;is growing.&nbsp;IFrom&nbsp;the annual contemporary performance&nbsp;SandBox&nbsp;Series to being the new home for Mad Cat Theater Company,&nbsp;MTC&nbsp;has redefined itself as a vibrant center of culture in sleepy Miami Shores.</p> Mon, 13 May 2013 12:46:00 +0000 Neil de la Flor 13635 at http://blog.wlrn.org Miami Theater Center Redefines Itself With "Inanna and the Huluppu Tree" T.

The performances, billed as six- to eight-minute samplers, highlighted the scope of dance&nbsp;talent that exists in Miami. Produced by Dance NOW!
