RUBELL FAMILY COLLECTION
“The Rubell Family Collection (RFC) was established in 1964 in New York City by Mera and Don Rubell. It is now one of the world’s largest, privately owned, publicly accessible contemporary art collections. In Miami, Florida, since 1993, the RFC is exhibited within a 45,000-square-foot repurposed Drug Enforcement Agency confiscated goods facility. The Contemporary Arts Foundation was created in 1994 by Mera and Don Rubell with their son Jason Rubell to expand the RFC’s public mission inside the paradigm of a contemporary art museum.” (https://rfc.museum/about-us)

Projects will be posted on a public forum, which will enable the host institution to engage student perceptions. This provides students with the opportunity to engage in a community dialogue in regards to their work. This should not impact student perspective or analysis. Your professor and the host institutions are interested in a genuine experience and honest reflection.
