Le Peignoir Aux Alouettes

Sunday, Apr 30, 2017 at 4:00 PM - English

A modern "vaudeville", funny, but also tender and cynical, where the IPhone has replaced the slamming door. A man and four women, as different as the seasons of his life, yet the seasons, in his life, do not follow each other. They overlap, interpose and oppose each other. He believes, on his coach, a true control tower, to be master of his life and of their hearts. But these modern tools such as cell phones and computers, far from the illusion of proximity they create, echo only into his inner emptiness. While these same tools give each of the four women the illusory fantasy that each of them knows a man, this man does not even know who he really is.

The author, Anna Alexis Michel is a photographer, visual Artist, writer and producer of theater plays. It is a unique combination and she started to write novels and stories when she was a little girl. Her plays are interpreted as a metaphor for women, their rights or lack thereof. "Le Peignoir Aux Alouettes" will be played in French.

Childhood Memories from the Other Side of the Water

Sunday, Apr 30, 2017 from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM - English

MDC Museum of Art + Design presents Childhood Memories from the Other Side of the Water, a visual autobiography depicting childhood experiences and recollections of Cuba by artist Eduardo del Valle consisting of a new series of thought-provoking photographs never exhibited before.

Independently over the past nine years, Eduardo del Valle has worked on a visual autobiography of his experiences and observations central to his childhood, his recollections of Cuba between 1951 to 1961, when he left the country of his birth at the age of ten, never to return. The photographic series Childhood Memories from the Other Side of the Water portrays certain aspects of the artists’ memories that have stayed with him, wedged deep at the far end of his recollection, aspects that have challenged del Valle forever in an unfading fashion. The project culminated into 88 autobiographical photographs, recreating memories shot entirely outside of the island.

The Exile Experience: A Journey to Freedom

Sunday, Apr 30, 2017 from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM - English

The Exile Experience: Journey to Freedom is a pictorial account of the struggles that the Cuban exile community has endured since Fidel Castro's rise to power, and the successes they have achieved in the United States. Having covered the Cuban exile community and its struggle for freedom extensively throughout the years, Miami Dade College and The Miami Herald Media Company now present this journalistic chronology, which showcases the spirit and accomplishments of the Cuban American community. The permanent exhibition is housed at the College’s National Historic Landmark Freedom Tower, itself central to the story of Cubans in the United States.

MDC’s Freedom Tower was operated by the U.S. Government as a reception center for Cuban refugees from 1962 to 1974. “The building is significant because it represents the important story of the Cuban exodus to America and resettlement during the Cold War,” reports the U.S. Department of the Interior, which has also called the Freedom Tower the “Ellis Island of the South.” Though it operated in that capacity for only 12 years, the building has become an icon representing the faith that democracy brought to troubled lives, the generosity of the American people and a hopeful beginning that assured thousands a new life in a new land.
