Through Spring 2013These books are the work of students in Professor Mia Leonin’s Introduction to Poetry class (English 292, Fall 2012), inspired by books in the Ediciones Vigía Collection at the Cuban Heritage Collection. Using the Vigías as examples, and with the expert help of Carol Todaro, a local artist specializing in book making, the students created their own books based on their experiences and interests. Also on exhibit is What We Found Here: Miami Obscura, a collaborative class project inspired by Ruth Behar’s i published by Ediciones Vigía in 2001.
May 3, 2013 through April 27, 2014This exhibit, curated by museum-studies students as part of the ArtLab @ The Lowe program, explores connections within the Lowe’s collection of molas, or traditional blouses, and pre-Columbian ceramic and stone objects from the Gran Coclé and Gran Chiriquí cultures. With guidance by Traci Ardren, associate professor of anthropology in the College of Arts and Sciences, the students were able to research Panamanian artistic traditions firsthand through a spring break expedition to San Blas islands.
