Town of Miami Lakes Awarded $5,000 Grant For "The Art Collaborative"
 
Miami Lakes, FL -   The Florida Department of Elder Affairs awarded the Town of Miami Lakes and its Elderly Affairs Committee a $5,000 Community for a Lifetime Support Projects for Elders Grant, to fund The Art Collaborative. The Art Collaborative is an intergenerational art education and exchange program in partnership with the Youth Activities Task Force and the Cultural Affairs Committee, culminating in a Gallery Night Grand Opening and Weekend Exhibition. The Art Collaborative includes an intergenerational component allowing youth volunteers to work with seniors in the art classes at the Mary Collins and Robert Alonso Community Centers.

The juried exhibition will select the artworks to be displayed. Entries will be judged based on technical quality, composition, originality and artistic merit. First, Second, and Third place winners will be awarded in the following categories: Professional Artists, Amateur Artists, Students (Elementary, Middle School, and High School) and Seniors (60+ years). A special People's Choice Award will be presented to the artwork with the most votes through the use of social media. All winning entries will be on display at Town Hall during the Gallery Night Grand Opening in June.

All interested artists must pick up The Art Collaborative Entry Form from Town Hall located at 6601 Main Street or download here. All competition entries must be submitted in person no later than Friday, May 16 to Town Hall. For more information about the competition, contact Special Events & Committees Coordinator, Clarisell De Cardenas, at 305.364.6100 or via email decardenasc@miamilakes-fl.gov.
