MIAMI--- Nine visual artists from the college program at New World School of the Arts will exhibit their work at Wynwood’s Bakehouse Art Complex. The collaboration, which will be in exhibit from February 13 through March 1, is free and open to the public. Opening reception at the Bakehouse will be on Friday, February 13 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM, 561 NW 32nd Street, Miami.
Curated by NWSA dean of visual arts Maggy Cuesta, the show features the works of nine juniors from the college division, and showcases a diverse gamut including painting, sculpture, installations and digital media. “This collaboration” stated Cuesta “is the first of many exhibitions programmed for NWSA this year. They are meant to highlight the students of NWSA, and will undoubtedly enhance the relationship between them and the community. Making art more accessible has a positive impact on the community and a direct influence on the students’ approach to art.”
Exhibiting artists include: Autum Casey, Cynthia Cruz, Laura Duran, Mauricio Gonzalez, Barbara Gutierrez, Samuel Lopez de Victoria, Natalia Manrique, Orlando Robaina and Monica Tabora.
Other collaborations for NWSA this year include the BFA exhibition at the CIFO on March 14, Artemericas, Bass Museum and Artseen in Wynwood.
