13th Annual Federal Government Statewide Conference

2018 Federal Government Statewide Conference Flyer ver 3

This 13th Annual Federal Government Statewide Conference is designed to bring representatives from various government entities together to discuss aspects of government employment, best practices, employment opportunities, and several other relevant topics geared for students, alumni, professionals, and veterans. After the breakout sessions on government employment, we host a resource fair for participating agencies and students will get the opportunity to visit and network.

The Federal Government Statewide Conference provides students the opportunity to:
• Learn about employment opportunities in a “government only” environment
• Offset “myths” about working for the federal government
• Create early awareness of government employment opportunities
• Break employment time barriers and stereotypes

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
