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.

AMERICA, a limited edition lithography by artist Theo Tobiasse

The President of ArtesMiami, Dr. Aida Levitan, supports the creation of a Smithsonian American Latino Museum on the National Mall in Washington.

September 25, 2020

The President of ArtesMiami, Dr. Aida Levitan, supports the creation of a Smithsonian American Latino Museum on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. She served on the Commission appointed by President Obama and Congress to study all aspects of this project. If you would like to support the creation of this museum, which has already been approved by the House of Representatives (HR 2420, approved on July 27, 2020), please click on this link if you wish to sign on to the petition so that U.S. Senators will vote for the museum.

This museum will tell the fabulous story of the contributions of U.S. Hispanics to our nation's development and success, from as early as the 1500s, when the Spaniards founded St. Augustine to the present time. It is not about Latin American history; it is about the history of U.S. Hispanics, and the stories of national groups such as Cubans-Americans, Puerto Ricans, Mexican-Americans, Colombian-Americans and others will be included.

There are already 29 cosponsors in the U.S. Senate, including Senator Marco Rubio, but Senators Rick Scott, Ted Cruz, Mitt Romney and other Republican Senators have not yet signed on to support it. Time is of the essence if you want this museum to become a reality.
