Learning outcome:

Our Internship Programs aim to work with students to help them break barriers by providing real world experiences in a dynamic and continuously evolving environment. Our goal is to provide broad exposure to the art industry through experience, in order for students to develop and explore different career possibilities within the arts. They will have the opportunity to create a professional network, and gain transferable skills through direct application of knowledge gained in the office and studio, as well as in exhibition and production settings.

Due to the nature of our line of business, interns’ roles in their positions will vary on a day to day basis, carrying out administrative duties in addition to specific roles within their assigned position. Interns are a valuable component of our organization as they will play vital supporting roles in their respective areas.

At the end of the internship program, students will have gained administrative, operational, and production skills, as well as a material understanding of the scope of work required to operate professionally in the arts. Through self-reflection, they will have gained more experience in relationship building as well as multitasking.

“LightScapes” at Young At Art Museum


Young At Art Museum is pleased to present the first solo exhibition of Cuban-American interdisciplinary artist Haiiileen, LightScapes. Featuring three large-scale acrylic light sculptures and a fabrication lab, the exhibition will be on display at the Knight Gallery from November 2nd, 2018 through April 28th, 2019.

In her larger than life sculptures, Haiiileen translates the ideas and concepts brought up by her synesthetic thinking. There is a particular focus on the use of light as a medium in her work, as all of the sculptures in this exhibition manipulate light in a fashion that allows for the creation of what the artist calls a “neo-abstract alternate reality.” Haiiileen’s past works have dealt with taking spaces and creating abstract environments within them that have the ability to translate different perceptions into our reality.
LightScapes will feature a selection of three major acrylic light sculptures and will explore several different educational concepts in an immersive multi-sensory approach aimed towards the youth of the community. In this exhibition, there is a strong emphasis on concepts like color theory, illusions and reflections, and quantum physics in relation to light.

There will be three light sculptures, including the first of its kind, Amaziiing, a maze comprised of marbleized acrylic sheets placed in conjunction with the strategic use of mirrored elements and LED lighting meant for guests to explore. Aqua will also be displayed, consisting of over 30 custom acrylic sculptures and LED lighting that visitors may interact with, creating a sweeping arrangement, further embodying the light theme. The kinetic sculpture, HaiiiMobile, made of over 200 floating custom acrylic elements will be in constant rotation. Visitors can gaze up from a transportive viewing area made of custom reflective beanbags, allowing them to get lost in an illusion of time and space.

This exhibit will also include a fabrication lab focusing on electricity, positive and negative wavelengths, light frequencies, and light theory as an interactive and immersive educational experience.

Locust Projects: 2018 Annual Smash & Grab Fundraiser

I am so excited to announce my work will be featured in Locust Project’s annual Smash & Grab Fundraiser on Saturday, October 13, 2018. This year, I will be donating a print from my “Aciiid Palm” series.

There is no other fundraiser quite like this one. The lively event revolves around a raffle, for which over one hundred local, national and international artists have donated artwork — enough so that each raffle ticket is guaranteed to win an artwork. Tickets are drawn at random during the party, with the winner getting their choice of artwork (i.e, first called gets first pick, and so on). The result is a fun way to place artwork into collections, build visibility for artists, connect with Miami’s art community, and support Locust Projects.
