Ivonne speaks about her work:
"I would tend to say that my first love affair was with a crayon and a white piece of paper.  Ever since I can remember, picking up a pen, crayon or colored pencil and letting my brain waver with thoughts superf



Yiddish Wisdom Box

Wood box, carved and painted.  I spent the better part of my childhood growing up on Miami Beach with a lot of Jewish and Yiddish influences.  This is in honor of those years and all the amazing culture nuances I picked up. Needless to say, they fare well with my Cuban roots.  Each box is hand carved, you will notice that all lines are composed of dots, I am still currently teaching myself how to use the tool.  It has a nasty habit of getting a tad bit hot and my small digits take quick offense. The figures are created in clay, baked, glossed and placed on the box after the box has been stained.  Depending on the size of the piece this can take anywhere from 5 hours to a day or two.

ArtesMiami President received the Royal Eagle Award

On May 20th, 2016 the South Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce presented the Royal Eagle Award to ArtesMiami President Dr. Aida Levitan for her contributions to the South Florida community. The event, held at the Carnival Fantasy, was attended by hundreds of local business leaders.

The South Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce President Lilliam Lopez announced that this is the first time that this prestigious award was presented to a woman. In the past, nationally recognized leaders such as Dr. Eduardo Padron, President of Miami Dade College, have received the award.

Dr. Levitan has devoted many years of her life to community service, after heading the number one Spanish-language advertising agency in the U.S. She serves on the board of the Smithsonian Latino Center, CCEMiami,and is a Trustee Emerita of the Perez Art Museum Miami.

ArtesMiami launched new poetry book: CONVERGENCIA

Editorial Ultramar, the publishing division of ArtesMiami, Inc., has just published"Convergencia," a poetry book by Judit Arvesu, who arrived in Miami from Cuba in 2012. Persecuted by the Castro regime for defending human rights, Arvesu is a talented poet whose book has been praised by writer Regis Iglesias:

"These 60 poems condense the essence of the poet, in her direct and melancholic style, and the expression of a whole generation silenced for too long. They are a burst of desire, hope and desperation; they are love and darkness, but, above all, they are passion...they are honest and softly penetrating verses."

ArtesMiami president Dr. Aida Levitan and the book's editor, writer and poetJanisset Rivero, presented the book and a reading by Arvesu on Monday, June 6th at the Coral Gables Books and Books, before an audience of more than 50 cultural leaders, including the Consul General of SpainCandido Creis, and cultural columnist Olga Connor. The Luyano Band played New Age music while the author read. "Convergencia" is available for sale at Books & Books, 265 Aragon Avenue, Coral Gables, for $15. Books & Books will donate a portion of the proceeds of the book to ArtesMiami and the organization, in turn, will donate its own proceeds from the sale of books to the poet.
