HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL DEBUTS ON THE BEACH (written, directed, cast and performed by students)

Miami, FL – (March, 2006) – Students at Miami Beach High School are completing preparations for three performances of a new musical – “10 Year Reunion, Our Stories”. Students participated in the writing, music, drama, and production of this one of a kind Musical Production. The musical is a series of vignettes depicting the real life consequences of substance abuse.

The Center for Emerging Arts is producing the musical as a collaborative partner in a children’s substance abuse prevention initiative known as the Miami Beach Super CAT operated by Informed Families/The Florida Family Partnership. The initiative is funded by the Children’s Trust.

The musical is created by youth at Miami Beach High School under the artful guidance of the Miami Beach based Center for Emerging Arts.

Through the process of creating the musical, students learned about drug and alcohol abuse and how it can destroy lives. It’s a serious message delivered in an innovative package.

“We hope the community takes advantage of this unique opportunity and enjoys an engaging musical performance. We are grateful to the Children’s Trust for making this possible.”

PRESS RELEASE  AVANT GARDEN: an African-American Slave Garden

The Center for Emerging Art, Inc., along with its project partners,  completed the Avant Garden:  An African-American Slave Garden with the Harvest taking place on September 22, 2006.  The Avant Garden:  An African-American Slave Garden was created by participants in the community and the students from Miami Beach Senior High School.  The exhibition of the exhibition of the artwork created by the students has toured to the Riley Museum in Tallahassee and presently on exhibition at the Sunrise Community.  Ms. Ava L. Rado, Executive Director of the Center for Emerging Art, served as the Artistic Project Director responsible for the implementation of the program and supervised design and planning the Garden, the planting and the artists in residents involved in the project.  The Avant Garden:  An African-American Slave Garden focused on the development of arts education programs for seniors, adults, and youth who learned about slavery and life on the plantations during the 1700's. During the education workshops the brief overview of the landscape elements of the African American yard in the south was discussed as it evolved after the abolition of slavery.  Plants most frequently found in traditional African American yards in what has been referred to as the black belt of the American South was reviewed along with slavery in Florida.   In Florida's sub-tropical climate we can grow a range of vegetables and herbs which are commonly grown in Africa, that was brought to America by slaves.  The bottom line is, we could not duplicate exactly a traditional African-American yard since in Florida as it was on the plantaions as Florida's soil and climate is a very different climate to that of the South.
