Vizcaya Museum and Gardens has been selected as one of the 75 finalists in the Knights Arts Challenge

MAY2014                    Thursday, May 8, 2014  Vizcaya Museum and Gardens has been selected as one of the 75 finalists in the Knights Arts Challenge More than 1,100 ideas were submitted by South Florida's creative community and the museum's Contemporary Arts Program  has made it to the final round. The winners will be announced in December 2014. The Knight Arts Challenge is a South Florida-based initiative to draw the best and most innovative ideas out of local organizations and individuals seeking to transform the community through the arts.   The Contemporary Arts Program (CAP), which invites artists to develop site-specific work inspired by Vizcaya, draws connections between the past and the present. CAP reinvigorates Vizcaya with the creative dialogue that characterized its foundation, engaging artists whose practice establishes a discourse or a critique with the physical and cultural contexts of the place. "I am honored our Contemporary Arts Program is being recognized by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation," said Dr. Joel Hoffman, Executive Director, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. "I truly enjoy our collaborations with contemporary artists, which result in site-specific projects, exhibitions and performances. It is thrilling to participate in someone else's adventure of discovery with Vizcaya, and contemporary artists remind us of Vizcaya's creative roots while challenging us to look at the estate in new and different ways."   Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, a National Historic Landmark and European-inspired estate on Biscayne Bay, is located at 3251 South Miami Avenue.
