QUILTING BEE WITH TEXTILE ARTIST MICHELLE POLISSAINT
Thursday, August 28 at 4:30 to 8 p.m.

Long-ignored and conspicuously absent from many early accounts of American quilt history, African American quilting has become a growing area of study. Women on plantations and in other wealthy households also did spinning, weaving, sewing and quilting in addition to many household duties. Their surviving quilts provide a unique history of their lives and culture. Bring your own quilting basket to the Quilting Bee to share techniques and stories and view the exhibition When the Stars Begin to Fall: Imagination and the American South. $10 admission includes Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale entrance; free for Museum members, NSU students and faculty.

SIEMPRE FLAMENCO'S 9TH ANNUAL FESTIVAL DE CANTE
Friday - Sunday, August 29 - 31

You will be swept away to the Gypsy caves of Andalucia with the stirring rhythms of Flamenco at the Arsht Center's 9th Annual Festival de Cante Flamenco . Paco del Pozo makes his Miami debut at the Festival. Devoted to the study of Cante Jondo (deep song of flamenco), he is a master of all the flamenco styles. Ismael de la Rosa is pure gypsy, and his singing style is steeped in the heritage of his ancestors. Festival favorite Javier Heredia returns for the third time. Javier is a Festero, which is a rare character in flamenco – one who dances, sings, and gets the excitement flowing. This year’s program will be complemented with a strong offering of dance. Guest artist Jose Barrios, principal dancer and choreographer of the Maria Pages Flamenco Dance Company, returns to the Festival for the second time. Siempre Flamenco's artistic director Celia Fonta will also premiere a new choreography using the famous “Manton de Manila” (large flamenco shawl) in the Solea style. To bring it all together, the Festival features great flamenco guitarists, all from Spain, Paco Fernandez (Seville), Paco Fonta (Jaen) and Jose Luis Rodriguez (Huelva). Performances are Friday and Saturday at 8 and Sunday at 4 p.m. General admission tickets are $45.
