"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.

Yiddish Wisdom Box
AMERICA, a limited edition lithography by artist Theo Tobiasse

The President of ArtesMiami, Dr. Aida Levitan, announces that Congress approves the Smithsonian American Latino Museum on the National Mall in Washington.

December 22, 2020

The President of ArtesMiami, Dr. Aida Levitan, who was a member of the Commission of the National Museum of the American Latino (NMAL) in 2010-2011, announced that Congress approved, on December 22nd, 2020, the Act (H.R.2020) that will create the long-overdue museum on the National Mall in Washington, DC. This museum will illuminate the American story of U.S. Hispanics, which started in a big way with the historic settlement by Spaniards in St. Augustine (in the 16th Century), continued with the heroic Hispanics who died fighting for this country, and has resulted in major contributions to American society.

Millions will visit the museum to learn more about the fascinating U.S. Latino history, including stories about: Pulitzer Prize winners like Cuban-American Oscar Hijuelos and Dominican-American Junot Diaz, business leaders like Cuban-American Roberto Goizueta (the former Chairman of Coca Cola), Mexican-American human rights leader Cesar Chávez and Dolores Huerta, entertainment luminaries like Eva Longoria, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Gloria and Emilio Estefan (who was the Vice Chairman of the NMAL Commission), soldiers, agricultural workers, and the millions of workers who have served the public in spite of the dangers posed by COVID19

Dr. Levitan praised the visionary leadership of former Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Senator Bob Menendez (both Cuban Americans), former Congressman Xavier Becerra, and many other leaders who fought against many odds to make this legislation possible. She added, "I also want to thank Estuardo Rodriguez and Danny Vargas, who led the National Museum of the American Latino Friends for many years, for their untiring work on behalf of the creation of this significant museum."
