Bernice Steinbaum is the owner of the legendary Bernice Steinbaum Gallery founded in New York, in 1977. She is known for advocating for women and people of color. As a gallerist, her mission was to exhibit artists working with narrative, while maintaining a roster of 50 percent women and 40 percent artists of color. In 2000, the gallery moved to Wynwood, Miami, where she played an important role in turning the former warehouse district into a bustling arts haven. Then, her attention turned to the future of the natural world, and the many threats to it that human endeavors pose. Given the role of technology and globalization in both causing and countering environmental issues, she also developed an interest in artists pursuing similar themes in their work. In 2014, Bernice closed her gallery in Wynwood and continued to work from her home, where she opened a new gallery in January, 2017.

Ludlam Trail 2020: From Grassroots to Treetops

The Ludlam Trail is a proposed 6.2-mile linear park that would transform Miami-Dade County as we know it. By occupying an abandoned section of the Florida East Coast railway, the park will contain community gardens and a trail that will provide a safe dedicated and direct route for cyclists and pedestrians to schools, parks, work and shopping. The trail will connect more than 34,000 people within a half-mile, walkable service area to five greenways, five schools, four parks and two transit hubs.  This exhibit will feature Trail history, images and designs for future use.  Co-curated by Tony Garcia and Eric Katz, Friends of the Ludlam Trail.
