Exploring Race through Wearable Art

AnnaMeierPinecrestWeb (1)The University of Miami presents Outsider, a community-based project by Master of Fine Arts candidate Anna Meier,  from May 8 – 27, at the University of Miami Art Gallery in Wyynwood, with an opening reception on Saturday, May 12, from 6  to 9 p.m.

Outsider draws on the complex history of Miami and focuses on the social and racial structures within the city’s different neighborhoods.  Using natural materials gathered from the streets of Miami,  Meier created ten wearable sculptures or body-scapes, each representing a different neighborhood in the city. She then returned to each neighborhood with the completed body-scape and asked a passerby to take her photograph. 

Outsider will feature these wearable sculptures and the 10 photographs of them taken in different locations around the city by different community members.  The intention behind this work, is to explore and test the boundaries of racial, social, and class divides within Miami by inverting the traditional roles of subject and photographer, and to stimulate a dialogue about how race relations in Miami and the country can be improved. The work featured in Outsider is strange, eerie, and a little silly, a reminder that laughter is often the best way to break down barriers.

Living and working in Miami, Meier received her B.F.A. in Fibers from the Oregon College of Art and Craft and is currently completing her M.F.A. in sculpture at the University of Miami. In her work, Meier focuses on blurring the lines between art and life to create beneficial and eye opening experiences. Each of her projects is an attempt to understand how art and creative work can make a positive impact on society.

The Wynwood Building is located at 2750 NW 3rd Avenue, Suite 4, Miami, FL 33127. A full schedule of exhibitions can be viewed at www.as.miami.edu/art.  Gallery hours* are Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

*Hours may be subject to change, please call (305) 284-3161 to confirm times. Appointments and Private Tours available. For more follow us on Instagram and Twitter: @umartgalleries.

For more information about the exhibition contact Milly Cardoso, Gallery Director at m.cardoso1@miami.edu.

Parking Enforcement Expands on the Coral Gables Campus

Effective Monday, August 20, 2018, parking enforcement hours at the Gables Campus and Gables One Tower will expand to seven days a week and from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.

The license plates of all vehicles parked on campus during these hours will be required to be registered with the University. There will be no change for current daytime campus parkers—daytime permits are valid 24/7 in the assigned parking zone, and in any other zone after 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 24 hours on the weekend.

Current University of Miami constituents who do not have a parking permit but who park on the Gables campus after 4 p.m. on weeknights, and on the weekends, will be able to purchase a night and weekend permit. The permit fees will be waived through the 2018-2019 academic year, but vehicle license plates will still need to be registered with a valid permit.

Read more about the changes for night and weekend parking enforcement and permits in this announcement.

As is customary during the pending summer, parking zone restrictions will be lifted beginning Monday, April 30, until Sunday, August 19, for all zones except UV garages, Purple, Gables One Tower, and reserved lots. Limited shuttle service will also begin during this time.

Compliance Corner: Summer Reminders

Now that many of the University of Miami teams have concluded their seasons, it is important to remember that NCAA rules affect student-athletes, coaches, institutional staff members, and fans throughout the year, not just during the playing season. Here are a few reminders everyone should keep in mind during the summer:

Use of student-athlete names, images, or likenesses: NCAA bylaws prohibit boosters, local businesses, and corporate entities from using a student-athlete’s name, picture, or likeness to promote any commercial product. Nor can a student-athlete authorize the use of his or her name or picture on commercial items.

Employing student-athletes: Student-athletes can earn only the going rate in the locale of their employment. This means, for example, that if the going wage in a certain field is $20 an hour, it would be impermissible to pay a student-athlete $50 an hour for the same job. Additionally, student-athletes may be paid only for work actually performed and, to ensure the work is completed, should not be paid in advance. There have been many NCAA violations concerning student-athletes who were paid for work they never performed.  Student-athletes who receive payment without performing work jeopardize their eligibility and subject UM to seek their reinstatement, or face other potential penalties. If you are aware of a student-athlete’s employment for yourself or another employee, please report it to the compliance office.

Extra Benefits: An extra benefit is any special arrangement by an institutional employee, or a representative of the institution’s athletics interests, to provide a student-athlete, a prospective student-athlete, their friend, or their family member a benefit not authorized by the NCAA. However, if the same benefit is available to the general student population, or a particular segment of the student body that includes the student-athlete, the receipt of that benefit is not a violation of NCAA rules.

As always, your efforts to help the University of Miami maintain a culture of compliance are greatly appreciated. For more compliance information, follow the UM Athletics Department on Twitter (@UCompliance), like them on Facebook (www.facebook.com/UCompliance), or contact them via email, athleticscompliance@miami.edu.
