Students may be inspired to learn about local or global issues. The challenge is to interpret or reflect ENDANGERED through either:
• Celebration of the beauty of endangered or threatened species/habitats
or
• Illustration of the threats facing endangered species/habitats

 

Please note – species do not have to be formally listed as endangered in order to be eligible for this contest as long as an element of threat exists.

For each class of students entering we will offer a symbolic adoption of one of the resident apes at the Center for Great Apes. The class may select the ape and they will receive photographs, an adoption certificate, newsletters and updates.
We email a certificate of participation for each entrant which may count towards community service work.
We will also work with interested students to involve them in volunteer projects which will demonstrate their leadership skills and commitment to making the world a better place. Examples of past student projects include:

The Center provides care with dignity in a safe, healthy, and enriching environment for great apes in need of lifetime care.

“City Within Reach” by Catherine Chen 

 

 

 

 

Catherine Chen was selected to receive the NAWA Florida Scholarship in memory of Rita Schwartz. Lacey Van Reeth, Dean of Visual Arts at Dreyfoos School of the Arts says, “Catherine is an insatiable learner and creator who lacks the paralyzing fear of failure; complacency and idleness are what Catherine views as failure.” The ten images Catherine submitted are part of her “The Electronic City” portfolio. The Digital with Pen and Acrylic artwork addresses the digital world crossing with the real world.

Zoe Elakman focuses on the exploration of wearable sculpture created from a mix of materials. In addition to creating avant-garde fashions, Zoe expressed the mental and physical effects of chemotherapy in a series titled Lymphoma 1,2,3C, 3D to honor her father who was diagnosed with cancer last year. In his recommendation letter, Peter J. Stodolak, Digital Media Department Dean at Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts, told us that Zoe has passionately photographed the dance performances at our school for the last three years and is a bright, independent, and highly motivated artist

Samantha Vassor’s “Wavelength”

 

 

Samantha Vassor creates surreal environments that influence the viewers’ perception while integrating political and social discussion to spark community awareness and change. Scott Armetta, Painting, Design and Critical Thinking Teacher at Dreyfoos School of the Arts, says, “Samantha’s work has a rare combination of an original, personal vision that can be appreciated by a very wide audience. Her intelligence and creativity are clearly shown in her pieces.” He adds, “That she has volunteered her time at the VA Medical Center and in Haiti helps illustrate her thoughtful kindness.”

PIRKEI AVOT (Ethics of the Fathers)

 

Hand Crafted Book by Rabbi Yonah Weinrib
Collector’s Ed. 93 of 613
Contemporary Leather, Bound with illuminations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pirkei Avos01

 

Detail, Chapter One: Moses received the Torah at Sinai & transmitted it to Joshua, and Joshua to the Elders, and the Elders to the Prophets, and the Prophets handed it down to the Men of the Great Assembly. They stated three principles: Be deliberate in judgment; educate many disciples; and set protective bounds for the Torah.)

 

 

 

 

Pirkei Avos, or Avot,  “Ethics of the Fathers” is a compilation of teachings and maxims of the Rabbis of the Mishnaic period. The teachings of Pirkei Avot appear in the Mishnaic tractate of Avot the second-to-last tractate in the order of Nezikin in the Talmud. Pirkei Avot is unique in that it is the only tractate of the Talmud dealing solely with ethical and moral principles; there is little or no halacha (Jewish law) found in Pirkei Avot.

 

 

 

 

Rabbi Yonah Weinrib is an artist / calligrapher who specializes in elaborate, researched-based manuscript illumination. One of his commissions was for a presentation award by Jewish National Fund to the King of Jordan. He is the co-author and illuminator of the Bar Mitzvah Treasury with Rabbi Yaakov Salomon. According to the artist, the text of Pirkei Avot is nearly 2000 year old. Rabbi Weinrib has skillfully woven images, illumination, profound research and commentary to create this breathtaking masterpiece whose messages come alive with contemporary meaning and lessons for life.

 

 

 

 

 

Three and one half years of artistic endeavor and illumination commentary are reflected in this work. The edition, encased in a luxurious leather binding, with each of the 49 art prints housed in a protective mylar sleeve, is limited to 613 signed and numbered edition, plus 48 A.P. Sets. Over 539 editions have been subscribed to by prestigious museums, galleries, and private collectors worldwide.

 

 

 

 

 

Griffin Gallery specializes in museum quality Ancient Art. Our holdings include over five hundred authentic artifacts that reflect a spectrum of the cultures of Antiquity in addition to contemporary and fine works of art. Among our treasures are pieces from Greece, Rome, Egypt, the Far East, the Near East, the Holy Land, Pre-Columbian cultures, and pre-historic Native America.

ART SALONS offer stimulating conversations with other artists in the community. As a springboard to each of our explorations, professional artists from South Florida are invited to present their work, talk about what influenced them, and examine the work of influential artists showing in museums and galleries. Our discussions cover the gamut of contemporary art themes, including conceptual, cultural, socio/political, environmental, race and gender focused and aesthetic practices, the materials and techniques used to convey these ideas, and where we fit into the world of contemporary conceptual art. They’re also an opportunity to explore the practical side of being an artist, of professional development and the sharing of useful resources.  Salons are facilitated by Elle Schorr.
