Roarthon, FIU’s Dance Marathon, is a year-long fundraising campaign ending in a 17-hour dance party that will begin Saturday April 14 at 5:00pm in FIU’s Wellness & Recreation Center. All the funds raised benefit the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital right here in Miami. Over 300 students will participate in the 17-hour fundraiser that takes an entire year and a committee of 50 plus students to plan and activate. As of 2017, the FIU community has raised over 1 million dollars!

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
