Miami, FL (PRWEB) October 25, 2011
Museum openings, theatrical premieres, local artist features and art exhibits are all included in the uVu collection, which covers the community from the Palm Beach to Key West. From the Mark Morris Dance Group to the award winning Dillard Center for the Arts Jazz Ensemble to the Out of This World exhibit at the Norton Museum in West Palm Beach, the segments highlight the full spectrum of the arts. uVu even had a featured exhibit on the PBS Arts website.
Arts education is also a pillar of the website. Working with the major performing arts centers in the region, uVu has become an important component in the educational outreach of these institutions. uVu has been on hand to develop content to extend the reach of these educational efforts including High School jazz students attending a master class during the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts’ Jazz Roots series and producing the online component of the local Cappie Awards (Critics and Awards Program for High School theatre students) at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.
uVu encourages all local arts organizations and community groups to participate in adding content, the open platform allows for user generated content but interested organizations can also talk directly with the uVu team.
uVu is a service of WPBT2 and extends the commitment of Public Broadcasting into the community with Interactive Media.
