Symposium- Florida and the Caribbean: The Contemporary Landscape
Miami, FL 33199
Florida, especially Miami, has been the home to Caribbean neighborhoods of Cubans, Jamaicans, Haitians, Dominicans and Trinidadians (among others), who have shared, interacted, and expressed their cultural heritage through Art for many generations. This visual survey will introduce the Caribbean in Miami through its most contemporary artists, both resident here and from their homes on islands and shores, and prepare teachers to incorporate the information into their curricula.
