Vizcaya’s In YOUnison workshops let guests collaborate with local artists – WSVN 7News | Miami News, Weather, Sports

Vizcaya is a murals, and it’s dwelling to an artwork occasion referred to as In YOUnison. We’re gonna see the way it lets guests get their creativity on and be one with the neighborhood.

Summer 2022 is about to get artsy. At Vizcaya, guests can participate in interactive workshops hosted by local artists.

Rebecca Peterson: “In YOUnison is the 2022 installation of Vizcaya’s annual participatory public art program. We commission a bunch of artists to come and envision a work here at Vizcaya, and then we invite the community in to work with those artists.”

This year, you might work alongside three completely different artists and be taught some new abilities.

Rebecca Peterson: “The whole point, really, is to give people time to be together and be creative, and that’s what you can expect at the workshops.”

One of the artists is local dressmaker Pangea Kalivirga, whose items are all manufactured from recycled materials.

Pangea Kalivirga: “Everything that I make is out of things that were donated to me by different community members. I cut it up, and I turn it into completely new things.”

No two items are alike, and a few may even be rented out for particular events.

Pangea Kalivirga: “Through having the rental program, it allows people who may not be able to afford the designs, or perhaps know that they will only wear it once, to appreciate and really live in a garment, and then return it for somebody else to use it.”

Renting isn’t simply straightforward in your pockets, it’s nice for the atmosphere, too.

But if you wish to hold one thing eternally, you may get a customized order.

Pangea Kalivirga: “Some of the styles I do have available for custom order, and that’s a really intimate and special process. Sometimes people will say, ‘I really like this design but, obviously, I’d like it in my measurements and perhaps in this color.’”

By the top of the workshop, you’ll understand how to boost your wardrobe on a finances.

Pangea Kalivirga: “At the workshops, we’ll be doing a variety of different things. We have a few workshops that are embellishment workshops, and it fosters a deeper connection with the clothes you already own.”

The In YOUnison workshops are all about collaborating, so that you’re going be studying from one grasp.

Pangea Kalivirga: “Arsimer and I will be doing these joint workshops where people will write poetry with Arsimer and write it on fabric, which I will then patch work into these 20- to 30-foot-long gowns.”

The better part? You’d have a hand in the entire efficiency, and take away just a few new abilities, too.
