Got Art?

Passing with flying colors

The theater area of the Department of Fine Arts put on five performances of "What Do You Make?" Based on the writings of slam poet/educator Taylor Mali, the original production was conceived and directed by Equity actress and adjunct faculty Elena Maria Garcia. Utilizing the talents of 12 Barry undergraduates, the piece dealt with the American education system, and how teachers make a difference in the lives of students. The production, which was supported by The Salon Group and Citizens Interested in Arts, ran from Feb. 24-27, and included a special matinee for Miami-Dade middle school students.
