VIZCAYA MUSEUM & GARDENS
“Today, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is an internationally renowned accredited museum and a National Historic Landmark. The museum is known for its rich history, architecture, gardens, and art and living collections, and it retains one of the only remaining native forests in Miami. Vizcaya’s mission is to preserve the estate and to engage the public in learning through the arts, history and the environment. A trip to Vizcaya transports visitors to another time.” (http://vizcaya.org/)

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is positioned at the center of the Miami conversation between the US and Western Europe. This project will offer students a uniquely structured exploration of Vizcaya, with an emphasis on reflecting on transatlantic similarities and contrasts. Vizcaya as Text is an interdisciplinary investigation of the people, art, architecture, culture of historic museum and gardens. While providing certain required guidelines, the project is structured in an open manner that enables student participants to emphasize their respective disciplinary interests. It is the students’ mission to investigate, discover and document Vizcaya.

Your professor and the host institutions are interested in a genuine experience and honest reflection.
