A Reflection on Architecture as an Art Form

For VAEA, it is a privilege this year to honor an art form that represents an integral part of our own being, an art we inhabit, we breathe, we transform into history. Architecture is nothing but our own personal history and the honorees represent an integral part of our lives….. Essay Architecture as Art  by Prof. Mario Valero.

OUR RESOLUTION

June 13, 2020

The Board of Directors of The Venezuelan American Endowment for the Arts
Resolves

The Founding of

VAEA New Rochelle Arts

Introduction

VAEA participated in the RFP process established by The City of New Rochelle and was selected to be the operator of the first cultural center in the city, transforming 12,000-square-feet of space in the historic Loew’s Theater site located at 595 Main Street New Rochelle, New York.
On March17, 2020 a lease was signed that granted our foundation the right to develop and operate the cultural center.

The Mission

The cultural center will provide arts education programs, performing and visual arts events, as well as literature, poetry, music, and artist-in-residence programs. VAEA will partner with other institutions to jointly make this vibrant city an international art destination.

Dedication to Youth

The Future is now. Youth are the Future.
VAEA New Rochelle embraces the mission of educating our youth through the  Arts as a way to transform our unstable and violent world into a livable and  peaceful one.

Artist-In-Residency Program

 
We are pleased to announce the first artist to #VAAEAR is Arq. Miguel Braceli. He will arrive to NR on July 6, 2020 to begin an art project about inclusion in the city.

 

Miguel Braceli is a multidisciplinary artist working at the intersection between art, architecture, and education. His practice is focused on participatory projects in public space. Most of these projects have been large scale works, developed in countries such as Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Costa Rica, México, Spain, Sweden, United States, and Venezuela. These works explore notions of borders, migrations, national identity, and social-political conflicts; working from the geopolitical geography to a human scale.
Our gratitude to The City of New Rochelle and www.accel7.org for supporting this program

VAEA Bratter Padrino Program

We received 75 applications in order to support 12 artists in Venezuela. The need of additional support is immense. With $500 per artist you sponsor an artist for a full year. Our gratitude to Bratter PA
