The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) presents SCAD AT MIAMI, a celebration of contemporary art and creative education as the official university partner of Untitled, Miami Beach during Miami Art Week, December 6 to 10, 2017.

Central to SCAD AT MIAMI is Chroma, an exhibition of immersive installations by renowned international artist and SCAD deFINE ART 2017 honoree Carlos Cruz-Diez, presented by the SCAD Museum of Art, in collaboration with Articruz and the Cruz-Diez Art Foundation. Chroma, an Untitled, Miami Beach Special Project, explores Cruz-Diez’s experimental and multidisciplinary practice and examines the artist’s groundbreaking color theory philosophies.

SCAD Art Sales, the university’s full-service art consultancy, introduces new works by SCAD alumni artists Christopher Paul Dean (MFA, sculpture, 2016), Cory Imig (BFA, fibers, 2008) and Britt Spencer (professor of illustration; MFA, painting, 2011; BFA, illustration, 2005)—three artists who, like Cruz-Diez, use vibrant color, pattern and crisp line as primary elements in their compositions. SCAD Art Sales is located within the Untitled, Miami Beach pavilion at Booth E28. Additional information is available at scadartsales.com.

This is the fourth year SCAD has exhibited during Miami Art Week. In previous years, the university presented CURVA, an exhibition by SCAD alumna Wendy White (BFA, fibers, 1993) that investigated the relationship between athletics and the artistic process; i feel ya: SCAD + André 3000 Benjamin, an exploration of fashion, film and painting through the eyes of three dynamic artists: multihyphenate performer André 3000 Benjamin and SCAD alumni filmmaker Greg Brunkalla (BFA, video/film, 2001) and painter Jimmy O’Neal (MFA, painting, 2016; BFA, illustration, 1989); and Theater of Self, a joint presentation of fashion and photography featuring works by London-based artist Daniel Lismore and SCAD alumni Bin Feng (MFA, photography, 2017) and Colin Douglas Gray (BFA, photography, 2004).

Additional SCAD AT MIAMI events scheduled throughout the week include a VIP and press preview, an alumni artist conversation, as well as workshops and admission information sessions for prospective students and families.
