FIU Honors at Vizcaya

Professor Bailly’s FIU Honors College students will earn 2 extra-credit points for attending this event. Details will be sent in an email.

Join scholars and contemporary art enthusiasts to explore the role of contemporary art in historic places. During the evening, Elizabeth Merritt from the America Alliance of Museum’s Future of Museums will provide a quick synopsis of the 2 day symposium’s findings and New York-based artist,  Ofri Cnaani, will lead 2 separate interactive pieces for guests to be part of the action!

6:45-7:45 p.m.                  Ofri Cnanni – Recalculating Route

A one-hour participatory experience taking the shape of geographically-based group messaging app that encourages self-guided wandering through call and response prompts and allows participants to re-experience familiar or unfamiliar sites and explored spaces assumed to be known.

The WhatsApp project is directive based and features artist-issued short prompts like “look up,” to which the participant responds by taking a photo of what they see and replying with that photo to the WhatsApp group. As a result, a WhatsApp-dedicated group compiles and tracks simultaneous individual perspectives of Vizcaya.

8:00 – 9:00 p.m.                Ofri Cnanni – Drawing of Drawing Sessions

Drawing of Drawing Sessions is a hands-on performance rooted in sketching that begins with one person sitting in front of a selected object or view and drawing it. A short distance behind, a second person will draw the first person drawing the object or view; they are followed by a third and a fourth, forming a line of sketchers.

The one-hour long performance includes several drawing assignments. After each assignment, the first in line will move to the end, turning the performance itself into a drawn human line that is constantly moving through its surroundings and shifting its focal point.  Through this performance, both the drawers and the viewers are encouraged to explore Vizcaya through changing perspectives.

Miami Chicken Key Clean-Up

UPCOMING CHICKEN KEY CLEAN-UPS

Canoe out to Chicken Key! Collect marine debris, swim, picnic, and earn three extra-credit points all in one…with Professor Bailly and your FIU Honors College classmates!

Wednesday 07 March 2018, 10:00 – 15:00

Tuesday 03 April 2018, 10:00 – 15:00

These two events are ONLY for FIU Honors College students currently enrolled in classes with Professor Bailly. Space is limited to 20 students per day. The first to respond to Bailly’s email requesting volunteers will get the spots. Students must arrive at the Deering Estate by 10:00.

Professor John William Bailly of FIU Honors College organizes snorkeling cleanups with university students. Marine debris is prevalent not only along the Miami coast, but also under the ocean’s surface. The irreparable damage of this pollution on the flora and fauna of South Florida is tangible to any that enters the water: habitat destruction, wildlife entanglement, and the resulting deaths of marine mammals.

If you wish to participate in Bailly’s Miami Ocean Cleanup, here is how to prepare.

  1. Contact Professor Bailly at bailly.john@gmail.com
  2. If the Cleanup is at the Deering Estate, you will need to complete the required volunteer paperwork.
  3. Each participant will receive certified volunteer hours from the Deering Estate.
  4. Bring your own mask, snorkel, gloves, and fins.
  5. Bring a reusable water bottle and a snack (energy bar and fruit are good).
  6. Bailly suggests you wear a long sleeve swim shirt.
  7. Always wear sunscreen.
  8. If you are comfortable with it, bring a knife to cut ropes and fishing line out of mangroves.
  9. We will encounter lots of marine life: manatees, sharks, crabs, stingrays. Always look, but never touch. Also, always check cans for octopus, crab, or fish before removing from water.
  10. Bring your GoPro or camera. Bailly will post photos on web.

OPENING RECEPTION ON THURSDAY, DECEMBER 7, FROM 18:00-21:00
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

MIAMI, FL (December 2017) LnS GALLERY continues its exhibition season with the grand opening of OOLITE, a collective exhibit that includes the work of an eclectic group of 12 artists working in South Florida, upon a foundation of oolite. The show features the work of John William Bailly, Jennifer Basile, Tim Buwalda, Robert DeYoung, Jessie Laino, Gabriela Noelle, William Osorio, Arturo Rodríguez, César Trasobares, Trek6, Tony Vazquez-Figueroa, Sinuhe Vega Negrin, and is accompanied by the LnS Journal with an insightful essay by CAROL DAMIAN, Ph.D.

As Dr. Carol Damian explains, “When presented with the idea of using oolite as the focus of an exhibition, each artist considered the stone from a different perspective related to their own memories and practice and to a new historical and ecological view of their surroundings that they may have taken for granted, but now merit artistic consideration. The shapes of the stones, oval and smooth, are the most basic units to appear in much of the work in the exhibition, especially as they are cemented into our familiar keystone or coral rock.”

“The story of oolite has become an artistic opportunity with results that celebrate the bedrock of Florida and the remarkable diversity of materials, artistic and structural, that have come together over the years. Miami is the epicenter of the most contemporary art scene in the state, and the construction boom that seems to last decades, will always be built upon oolite, beyond the foundations and onto the most recognizable features of buildings old and new,” adds Dr. Damian.

Oölitic limestone, also known as Coral Rock, is one of the most historic building materials native to our area. It has been used since the mid-19th century, in the form of architecture, sculptures and more, inspiring artists, architects and visionaries. Notable designs and structures in “oolite” include Merrick House, the Coconut Grove Women’s Club, Coral Gables City Hall, the Coral Gables Museum, Vizcaya, the Venetian Pool, Coral Castle Museum and Sculpture Garden, and Biscayne Bay Yacht Club to name a few.

“Considered a unique material, it is precisely its distinctive and artistic qualities that sparked our interest in this subject, and further offered inspiration for our artists, who embraced this thematic presentation with incredible passion and gusto,” say Luisa and Sergio. “Please join us as we embark on this encounter and exploration of Oolite.”

JW Bailly at Miami International Airport – MIA

 

 

JW Bailly’s exhibition “10,000 Years of Miami” is in the Central Terminal Gallery just past the Concourse E security checkpoint. When traveling, the exhibition is accessible from Concourse D or E. See more images of the exhibition here.

“10,000 Years of Miami” at Miami International Airport
By Gendry Sherer, Director & Curator, Airport Fine Arts & Cultural Affairs

John William Bailly is a painter, printmaker and traveler whose work explores issues of origin, history, cultural and geographical identity. Most of the paintings on view here were first exhibited at The Charles Deering Estate where the artist conceived the work through academic and field research as an Artist-in-Residence. Located along the edge of Biscayne Bay in Miami-Dade, the Deering Estate is an environmental, archaeological and historic preserve that broadened the artist’s perception of Miami’s history. His travels and research throughout Europe and specifically at Palau Maricel in Sitges in Catalonia, Spain further led Bailly to examine our transatlantic, cultural and biological relationships between Europe and the Americas.

10,000 Years of Miami is the artist’s reflection on his journey of self-discovery, and his rediscovery of Miami’s rich and diverse history. It is our hope that this exhibition challenges the notion of what the popular perception of Miami is and its reality; that it engages us all in self-reflection and brings awareness of our interconnectedness.

FIU Honors College Study Abroad

In an effort to make study abroad programs more accessible to students, the FIU Honors College has recently changed its policy regarding administrative fees.  In the past, students had to pay a $250 fee per program, now, the Honors College will wave that fee for any student taking two programs in one summer.

For example, if a student is participating in Spain in June 2018 and France in July 2018, that student will only be required to pay one fee of $250. Previously, the student would have had to pay $500.

Another cost-saving advantage of completing two programs in one summer is that the student will only need to purchase one plane ticket to Europe.

Lastly—and this is especially important for out-of-state and international students—one little-known advantage of FIU study abroad is that all students pay in state tuition, which makes studying abroad a more affordable option for certain students.

For more information on the FIU Honors College programs, please contact Luli Szeinblum, FIU Honors College Coordinator of Study Abroad, at 305.348.4100
