The mission of ArtCenter/South Florida is to advance the knowledge and practice of contemporary visual arts and culture in South Florida. Located in the heart of Miami Beach on Lincoln Road, ArtCenter provides affordable work-space for outstanding visual artists in all stages of career development. ArtCenter is an education center, offers access to resources and technical support, creates opportunities for artistic experimentation and encourages the exchange of ideas across cultures and artistic disciplines. This Panorama of Pablo Contrisciani's Studio is a good way to observe paintings that are the representation of different kind of moods altogether inside of one frame. They have an intenes and sensual sense of unity. The shapes had color that was partly knocked down, but mostly electric, and they were improvised and spontaneous but at the same time precise.
The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
