FIU College of Arts & Sciences School of Environment, Art and Society (SEAS) and College of Architecture + The Arts (CARTA) Artist-in-Residence Xavier Cortada will serve as emcee of the 2016 Art of Found Objects Exhibition.
For 22 years, as a part of their commitment to the community and its children, Ocean Bank and The Education Fund have sponsored an art exhibit for the children in Miami-Dade public schools. The art exhibit combines the power of a child’s imagination with the ultimate recycling program, giving kids the opportunity to use everyday objects “found” in the 11,000-sq.-foot Ocean Bank Center warehouse to design and create original works of art.
Imaginative student art work combines traditional sculptures, mixed media, 3-D pieces and a large number of paintings and drawings crafted from every recycled material imaginable from milk jugs and coat hangers to scrap metal, Styrofoam, and other surplus supplies donated by generous South Florida companies to the Ocean Bank Center, where more than 18,370 teachers have shopped for free since 1993.
