“Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we moved the exhibition online to protect our artists, buyers, visitors and volunteers,” stated Art4Apes founder and director Lindsey Matheson, “While we will miss the thrill of showcasing these incredible works of art during Miami Art Week, we feel the benefit of being online this year will allow even more people to view the pieces and support the program.”

 

The online exhibition features the 2020 entries to the ENDANGERED Fine Art & Photography Contest. More than 400 works by almost 200 new and established artists from around the world will be available for viewing. There is no charge to view the four virtual galleries. Artists are generously donating at least 30% of the selling price of their work to help the Center for Great Apes, a Florida-based sanctuary for rescued orangutans and chimpanzees in need of lifetime care.

The outdoor installations are accessed via an easy-to-walk self-guided tour. During opening weekend, the FREE public event will take place on Saturday, March 6th, 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Sunday, March 7th, 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

 

Highlights during this year’s event include an unveiling of world-renowned kinetic sculptor Ralfonso’s piece “Reflections”. This gateway feature for the City’s Town Square redevelopment project is located at the North East corner of E Ocean Ave. and Seacrest Blvd. The 27’ high sculpture features twenty-one 3ʹ to 11’ long bird-like wings that rotate in the wind. Fabricated by EES Designs, this stainless-steel artwork reflects nature by day and is colorfully lit at night. The wings intersect, representing the City’s diversity and unity. Three Zen-shaped seating walls provide sculpture viewing and a community- gathering place.

 

Additionally, “Synesthesia” by Donald Gialanella located at 120 E. Ocean Ave., will also be unveiled in November 2020. This artwork plaza is interactive during the day, engaging all generations and abilities with vibrant sounds and surface reflections. At night, it emits ambiance with soothing sounds and ever-changing light.

St. Lucie Cultural Alliance Welcomes New Executive Director, Alyona Ushe

St. Lucie Cultural Alliance has named its new executive director, Alyona Ushe after a lengthy national search.  Ushe began her career by founding Classika-Synetic Theater in the Washington DC Metro area. In South Florida, as President and CEO of Creative City Collaborative (CCC),  she grew the organizational budget to over $3 million. She founded the critically acclaimed Arts Garage, where she presented over 500 performances by both regional and international artists and launched numerous signature series and educational and outreach initiatives. Under her leadership, CCC won highly competitive bids in Pompano Beach to revitalize, program, and operate a 3,000-seat dormant amphitheater, and to open a new $20 million Cultural Center. The Rickie Report welcomes Alyona and looks forward to working with her and the St Lucie Cultural Alliance team!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“We are thrilled that Alyona Ushe will be putting her energy, creativity, and extensive experience to move St. Lucie County’s Alliance to an entirely new level of commitment to the community it serves,” said Rebecca Miller, Chair of the St. Lucie Cultural Alliance Board of Directors.

 

Ushe brings over twenty years of leadership experience in launching and growing distinctly different organizations for both nonprofit institutions and municipalities. As the Alliance’s Executive Director, Ushe will lead the implementation of the SLCA strategic plan, establish and cultivate strong partnerships with artists, organizations, events, and groups in St. Lucie County, and work towards engaging compelling arts and education experiences for residents and visitors alike.

 

“SLCA’s overwhelming success since its reincarnation is remarkable. Neil Levine, SLCA Interim Executive Director, has done an outstanding job in developing a powerful road map for the vision and direction of the organization,” said Ushe. “I am honored to take over the reins and continue to build on the great accomplishments while developing new initiatives to strengthen St. Lucie County’s cultural economy and support the local creative community.”

 

 

St. Lucie Cultural Alliance’s new executive director, Alyona Ushe

 

 

 

 

With Ushe’s expertise and years of experience, it is foreseen that she will have no problem filling the big shoes of Dr. Neil Levine, who has been the interim director since the organization reestablished in 2018.  “I’ve been delighted to have had the opportunity to assist the cultural alliance by developing organizational structure and strategic development, resulting in significant momentum. And I am pleased that foundational work is to be built upon by a true professional. I feel sure that Alyona will further develop the alliance into a benchmark organization we can all be proud of,” said Dr. Levine.

 

Ushe began her career in the arts by founding Classika-Synetic Theater in the Washington DC Metro area. There she produced over 100 original productions and organized the company’s participation at numerous festivals, including the International New York Fringe Festival, The Kennedy Center Prelude Festival, and the Shakespeare Festival in Washington, DC. She created and implemented extensive education outreach programs, praised on the floor of the US House of Representatives, resulting in significant Federal Appropriation funding.

 

In South Florida, she was the President and CEO of Creative City Collaborative (CCC), where she grew the organizational budget from $250,000 to over three million in under five years. She founded the critically acclaimed Arts Garage, where she presented over 500 performances by both regional and international artists and launched numerous signature series and educational and outreach initiatives. Under her leadership, CCC won highly competitive bids in Pompano Beach to revitalize, program, and operate a 3,000-seat dormant amphitheater, and to open a new $20 million cultural center. Previously, Ushe was the Executive Director of the New Orleans Opera Association.
