Instruments of Change

Sunday, Jul 15, 2018 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM - English

The film chronicles two institutions started by longtime Miami resident Ruth Greenfield. The first is the Fine Arts Conservatory which was established in the early 1950s to integrate black and white students in a welcoming environment that taught music, art and dance. The second, the Lunchtime Lively Arts Series, featured a wide variety of free noontime shows held in various downtown venues every Wednesday. The series hosted by Miami Dade College, ran from 1972-1992 and sparked a renaissance for a declining downtown. There will be a chat back and refreshments with Ruth Greenfield and Charles Greenfield following the screening.

The event is free for JMOF-FIU Members, FIU Students, Staff & Faculty or with Museum Admission.
