Highlights of BxB 2011

Check out some highlights of the creative fun we've had this year. We focused a lot on making art using recycled materials and creating temporary installations in public spaces. A huge number of kids participated in different activities over the course of this year, both at Mater Academy and Girl Power. Overall, we had an awesome year thanks to our sponsor: Miami Art Museum; our funders: JP MORGAN CHASE and the National Endowment for the Arts; our instructors: Nereida Garcia Ferraz, Michael Genovese, Dinorah de Jesús Rodriguez and Michelle Weinberg; and all the awesome kids who participated.

A special thanks go out to Federico and Nicolas Paseiro who took the time out to come down to the gallery and help us install the show. Nicolas Paseiro is also responsible for 90% of the music in the videos on display at the exhibition.

It was an amazing year and we can't wait for the next one!

Please come to our exhibition at Flagler Arts Space, 172 W. Flagler in downtown Miami, opening TODAY June 9 from 3-5PM.
