Vizcaya’s In YOUnison workshops allow guests to collaborate with local artists – WSVN 7News | Miami News, Weather, Sports

Vizcaya is a work of art and home to an art event called In YOUnison. We’ll see how this allows guests to unleash their creativity and become one with the community.

Summer 2022 is about to get artistic. In Vizcaya, guests can participate in interactive workshops led by local artists.

Rebecca Peterson: “In YOUnison is the 2022 installation of Vizcaya’s annual participatory public art program. We commission a group of artists to come and imagine a work here in Vizcaya, and then we invite the community to work with these artists.

This year, you could work alongside three different artists and learn new skills.

Rebecca Peterson: “The point, really, is to give people time to be together and be creative, and that’s what you can expect in the workshops.

One of the artists is local fashion designer Pangea Kalivirga, whose pieces are all made from recycled materials.

Pangea Kalivirga: “Everything I make comes from things given to me by different members of the community. I cut it up and made completely new things out of it.

No two rooms are the same, and some can even be rented for special occasions.

Pangea Kalivirga: “Through the rental program, it allows people who may not be able to afford the models, or who may know they will only wear it once, to enjoy and really live in a garment and then give it back to someone else to use it.”

Renting isn’t just easy on your wallet, it’s also good for the environment.

But if you want to keep something forever, you can get a custom order.

Pangea Kalivirga: “Some of the styles I have are available for custom order, and it’s a really intimate and special process. Sometimes people will say, “I really like this design but obviously I would like it in my measurements and maybe in this color.”

At the end of the workshop, you will know how to spice up your wardrobe at a low price.

Pangea Kalivirga: “During the workshops, we will do different things. We have a few workshops that are beautification workshops, and it encourages a deeper connection with the clothes you already own.

In YOUnison workshops are collaborative, so you’ll learn from a master.

Pangea Kalivirga: “Arsimer and I are going to do these joint workshops where people will write poetry with Arsimer and write it on fabric, which I will then patch onto these 20-30 foot long dresses.

The best part? You would get a hand in the overall performance and also take along some new skills.
