Miami International University of Art & Design Students Design Miami Art Week Map and Free Mobile App Miami International University of Art & Design Students Design Miami Art Week Map and Free Mobile App

[Miami, FL November 13, 2015] –For the second year in a row, a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree student from the Graphic Design program designed the map/guide of fairs and galleries for use during Miami Art Week December 1-7pm. New this year: a free mobile app designed by BFA in Web Design & Interactive Media students to go with it available for download from both the Google Play and the Apple stores.  

This year’s Miami Art Week map was designed by BFA in Graphic Design student Ericka Garcia who provides a contemporary, yet edgy and vibrant design that showcases over 40 fairs and galleries, local communities of interest and a sampling of local restaurants. The map also showcases sponsors which include presenting sponsor, Spectrum Miami Art Fair, the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau’s Art of Black Miami, Miami Downtown Development Authority (Miami DDA), City of Miami, Ace Graphics, Inc. and Art Circuits Miami Guide. The 15,000 printed maps will be distributed to over 200 locations around Miami in anticipation of the upcoming week.

In addition to the printed maps, there is a free mobile app that is available for download from Google Play and the Apple store that provides similar information for those who prefer to see it on their smart phones. The mobile app was created as part of the Mobile Devices II course taught by instructor Rima Gerhard. “The students were tasked with creating a consumer focused map that provided information about the fairs and galleries during Miami Art Week; they were also tasked with providing an ‘Explore’ section that provides the user with local areas of interest and restaurants as well as directing users to the City of Miami trolley site for trolley stops and routes; there really wasn’t anything like this that was available at no charge” says Marcia Gomez, director of campus relations.

Participating Web Design & Interactive Media Students are as follows:

Brad Cummins

Bradley Evans

Erica Munoz

Herodney Emile

Jose Gomez

Julissa Roa

Carlos Cardozo

Katherine Sanchez

Svetlana Pantepajeva

“We are so proud of the work our students have done – the printed map is very impressive and the mobile app propels the map to the next level – it showcases their talent, creativity and skill,” says Erika Fleming, president of Miami International University of Art & Design.

Student photography exhibit from Miami International University of Art & Design will kick-off its 50th Anniversary celebration during Downtown Art Days on September 11 Student photography exhibit from Miami International University of Art & Design will kick-off its 50th Anniversary celebration during Downtown Art Days on September 11

[Miami, FL August 25, 2015] Students from the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Digital Photography have been hard at work for the past quarter ensuring their images truly capture the essence of today’s downtown Miami.  Capture: Miami Now is a student photography exhibit featuring and documenting the ongoing growth currently taking place in Downtown Miami. The exhibit will serve as the backdrop for Miami International University of Art & Design’s 50th Anniversary celebration and reception during Downtown Art Days on September 11, 2015 at 5pm. The celebration will also feature a discussion by fine arts photographer David Hilliard. The event is open to the public and there is no charge to attend.

Miami International University of Art & Design is proud to celebrate 50 years of being part of the Miami community offering students a solid tradition of excellence in career-focused education in the applied arts through associate, bachelor and graduate degree programs in the creative fields of Design, Media arts and Fashion. “We are honored to have been a part of downtown Miami’s growth in the arts throughout the past 50 years; we are delighted to continue that evolution through so many wonderful partnerships like this one where our students are able to participate in documenting Miami’s progress in such a meaningful way. These types of partnerships and the success of our students and alumni over the past 50 years is what propels our continued commitment to higher education here in Miami,” says Erika Fleming, president of Miami International University of Art & Design. 

The photography project is a formal collaboration between Miami International University of Art & Design (MIU) and the Downtown Development Authority (DDA).  Two dedicated classes were added to the curriculum with a total of 30 students enrolled. The final images will be available to the DDA for use within their various publications and marketing collateral to maximize exposure and grow Miami as a cultural and business hub. The culmination of this first year’s efforts is a photography exhibit showcasing this unique perspective. This collaboration is expected to be an ongoing project documenting the development of Downtown Miami over the next five years. 

As part of the celebration, David Hilliard, fine arts photographer, will be offering guests a glimpse into the photography world with a short lecture on his works and experience. David Hilliard creates large-scale multi-paneled color photographs, often based on his life or the lives of people around him.  His panoramas direct the viewer’s gaze across the image surface allowing narrative, time and space to unfold.  David received his BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and MFA from the Yale University School of Art.  He worked for many years as an assistant professor at Yale University where he also directed the undergraduate photo department.  He is a regular visiting faculty at Harvard University, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, the Massachusetts College of Art & Design and Lesley University College of Art & Design.  David also leads a variety of summer photography workshops throughout the country.   www.davidhilliard.com

Lighting Design Contest in Sun Sentinel blog SouthFlorida.com Lighting Design Contest in Sun Sentinel blog SouthFlorida.com

(Miami, August 2015) Miami International University of Art & Design partnered with Farrey’s Lighting & Bath to sponsor the 3rd Lighting Design Contest for students currently enrolled in the school’s Lighting Design Class. The contest, which set to reveal Miami’s top upcoming design talents, announced a winner on August 12 and was featured in the Sun Sentinel blog SouthFlorida.com.


Oriana Cascarano was the first place winner receiving a $1,500 scholarship through The Education Foundation for “Spine Lamp,” a geometric luminaire built with 24 lighting pieces, inspired by the human spine.


Calvin Hrezik was the runner-up contestant receiving a $600 scholarship from Florida lighting sales agency Light’n Up for “Deconstructed Deco,” a piece influenced by Miami’s Art Deco architecture. His lamp was crafted to resemble an industrial skeletal cage, unveiling the framework of Miami’s Art Deco foundation.


Both Oriana and Calvin are students in the Bachelor of Fine Arts, Interior Design program at Miami International University of Art & Design.


The original designs were evaluated by a team of judges from Farrey’s and Miami International University of Art & Design which were reviewed on the aspects of originality, concept development, expected marketability and presentation. The class project was supervised by Professor Sable Stroud and Academic Department Director for Design, Ricardo Navarro.
