Mixtape Mondays

How can an educator benefit from Complexity Theory? What are the gender dynamics in a STEM classroom? In this Mixtape Monday, we will be joined by Mario Eraso. Dr. Eraso will discuss the intersections of mathematics and computational thinking for middle school children. 

Mario Eraso, Ph.D. participates in STEM outreach activities for elementary and secondary schools, provides students with academic support, and assists faculty with including educational components in grant proposals. Dr. Eraso has written academic papers and book chapters in which he highlights several of his innovative educational tools such as a three-slope scooter ramp and a roof-like structure called the penta-hut.

Steven & Dorothea Green Critics’ Lecture Series: Alanna Heiss

Alanna Heiss, Founder and Director of Clocktower Productions, is a leader of the early 1970’s alternative spaces movement in New York City, which radically changed the way large-scale art projects were produced, shown, and seen. In 1972 she created the Clocktower Gallery, and in 1976 she founded P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center (now MoMA PS1) which she directed for 32 years, and transformed into an internationally renowned non-collecting center for the production and presentation of contemporary art. Heiss has produced landmark exhibitions with artists, such as John Baldessari, Richard Serra, and Alex Katz.

Since 1981, the Steven & Dorothea Green Critics’ Lecture Series has introduced internationally renowned artists, museum curators, scholars and critics to the South Florida Community. These speakers have shaped art history through their scholarly, creative, and leadership contributions.  They have inspired us to think critically, investigate further, and consider the discourses and practices that shape the world of art. 19ZSUBUPCLOSE-jumbo
