HIGHLIGHTS FROM OUR NEIGHBORS AT THE U
Transport yourself into the roaring 1920’s with this exciting and exhilarating musical based on the Joseph Moncure poem of the same name. With a tuneful and pulsating score by Andrew Lippa (The Addams Family), The Wild Party follows Vaudeville performers Queenie and Burrs as they navigate their tumultuous relationship filled with jealousy, passion, and betrayal, all while hosting a party that makes for one wild dance filled night. A perfect way to end the Jerry Herman Ring Theatre’s 80th Anniversary season!

During the month of April, the Wirtz Gallery is exhibiting works by members of The Miami Watercolor Society. It’s membership consists of water media painters ranging from processional artists, teachers and those who simply paint for the joy of it, as well as patrons of the arts. The images shown here are two of the paintings that won awards in the Spring Exhibition. The specific awards will not be announced until our opening reception at the gallery on Friday, April 12 from 6 pm – 8 pm.
May’s exhibiting artist is Diana Benedetti, who was Born and raised in Cartagena, Colombia. Diana has worked professionally as a full time artist for more than 30 years. She started attending Beaux Art School in Cartagena when she was only 11 years old, and a fine arts student at Georgia State University and UM.
Diana Benedetti’s pieces are full of vibrant colors with textures that enrich their content. She uses oils, because she believes it is a very noble medium. “I love its brightness and smooth consistency, which lets me manipulate the paint in many ways. I also love the slow drying time and the durability of oils: With the appropriate technique, works in oil will last a lifetime.”
