Miami International University of Art & Design Hosts Capture Miami
October 13, 2016
For the second year in a row, Miami International University of Art & Design hosted Capture Miami, part of DWNTWN Art Days. DWNTWN Art Days is a 3-day long community event where major cultural institutions open their doors to showcase their talents.
Capture Miami, a student photography exhibit, was sponsored in part by the Arts & Business Council and the Downtown Development Authority (DDA). Held in the school’s gallery, the exhibit featured and documented the ongoing growth and changes currently taking place in downtown Miami. The formal collaboration between Miami International University of Art & Design and the Downtown Development Authority tasks students to capture the changing landscape of downtown Miami over a 5-year period.
To create the exhibit, the school added two dedicated classes to its curriculum; 30 students enrolled. The final images are available to the DDA for use within their various publications and marketing collateral.
In addition to the exhibit, the school’s audio production students provided live music. Guests also enjoyed an interactive and collaborative art piece whose template was designed by Jesse Martinez, a student working toward a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Arts.
