Poets, and artists who use words in their work, can do this with original poems or poems that inspire them (proper credit given). The poems can be on any kind of paper including post-its, photographs or drawings and put up with a push pin.

Poets should sign in at The Richard Shack Gallery located at 800 Lincoln Road before pinning their poems.

We are pleased to announce that ArtCenter/South Florida received a John S. and James L. Knight Foundation’s 2016 Knight Arts Challenge grant. ArtCenter’s Art-in-Public-Life seeks to bring art into public planning by embedding artists in city governments as part of a residency program that helps to develop solutions to policy concerns.

Art-in-Public-Life builds on a tradition of artists having a meaningful impact on city government by encouraging them to imagine themselves as agents of change. The program will support a one-year residency for an artist whose practice demonstrates a concern with the social effects of dominant political, urban, and economic configurations. During the residency, the artist will work closely with the City of Miami Beach to develop long-term multi-disciplinary platforms that may address the needs of this rapidly changing city.

The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation’s Knight Arts Challenge funds ideas that brings South Florida together through the arts. Visit the LINK for the full list of finalists.

Music on a Long Thin Wire












Music on a Long Thin Wire
| Alvin Lucier

March 1 – 31, 2013

“The wire is extended across a large room, clamped to tables at both ends. The ends of the wire are connected to the loudspeaker terminals of a power amplifier placed under one of the tables. A sine wave oscillator is connected to the amplifier. A magnet straddles the wire at one end. Wooden bridges are inserted under the wire at both ends to which contact microphones are imbedded, routed to a stereo sound system. The microphones pick up the vibrations that the wire imparts to the bridges and are sent through the playback system. By varying the frequency and loudness of the oscillator, a rich variety of slides, frequency shifts, audible beats and other sonic phenomena may be produced.”   — Alvin Lucier (1992)

The piece was recreated and adapted by members of F.L.E.A. and the installation is a project organized in collaboration with the Florida International University School of Music’s Music Technology Program and ArtCenter/South Florida.

Music on a Long Thin Wire by Alvin Lucier is part of Subtropics XXII: Miami’s Experimental Bienial of Music and Sound Art.
