CRAs get creative: Improving the aesthetics of the everyday
By Rachel Galvin

Art is about more than just painting on a canvas, a photograph in a frame or a sculpture in a museum; it is about the beauty in our daily lives. Everything from the landscaping to the architecture around us can be considered art. The way something looks affects us as much as its practicality.

Unleashing the art form Madeline Denaro's organized chaos
By Rachel Galvin

Layered washes of color; lines, drips, dots of paint cover the canvas. The feeling is a sensory one, not cerebral, nor is it intended to be. Artist Madeline Denaro simply wishes the viewer to experience her creation, not necessarily interpret it. She compares her artwork to music.

"Waves" at Port Everglades

Public artists Carlos Alves and partner J.C. Carroll recently completed a commissioned public artwork,Waves, at Terminal 26, Port Everglades. The artwork is one of two related artworks, commissioned by Broward Cultural Division's Public Art & Design Program, that the artists have designed to assist with way-finding by providing visual cues to passengers to lead them toward the ships.

Individually handcrafted ceramic wave sculptures mounted to a long overhead wall will now lead passengers from the ticketing area toward the artwork, Fish Tank Wall, a mural which covers both levels of the elevator core walls on all four sides. The hand-glazed turquoise blue and green mosaic tiles (waves) arranged in gentle wavelike patterns suggest calm seas ahead on the upcoming cruise which will refresh and soothe the cruiser’s perspective. Fish Tank Wall is being fabricated right now and will be installed over a period of two weeks at the end of the cruise season in May.

Alves and Carroll are well-known for their handmade ceramic mosaic tile installations, including the monumental Map of Florida mosaic floor installation for the U.S Department of the Interior at Everglades National Park, the Miami-Dade Children’s Courthouse, the Map of the Region at the Delta Rivers Nature Center in Pine Bluffs, AR, and Concourse C at the international airport in Milwaukee, WI.

Heading to the Homeland: Haitian Vodou Tradition

Healing in the Homeland: Haitian Vodou Tradition
Healing in the Homeland: Haitian Vodou Tradition
Dr. Margaret Mitchell Armand presents a cutting edge interdisciplinary terrain inside an indigenous exploration of her homeland. Her contribution to the historiography of Haitain Vodou demonstrates the struggle for its recognition in Haiti’s post-independence phase as well as its continued misunderstanding. Through a methodological, original study of the colonial culture of slavery and its dehumanization, Healing in the Homeland: Haitian Vodou Tradition examines the socio-cultural and economic oppression stemming from the local and international derived politics and religious, economic oppression.

While concentrating the narratives on stories of indigenous elites educated in the western traditions, Armand moves pass the variables of race to locate the historical conjuncture at the root of the persistent Haitian national division. Supported by scholarships of indigenous studies and current analysis, she elucidates how a false consciousness can be overcome to reclaim cultural identity and pride, and include a socio-cultural, national educational program and political platform that embraces traditional needs in a global context of mutual respect. While shredding the western adages, and within an indigenous model of understanding, this book purposefully brings forth the struggle of the African people in Haiti.
