Two former ACA Master Artists named 2014 MacArthur Fellows

Two former Master Artists from Atlantic Center for the Arts in New Smyrna Beach have been named 2014 MacArthur Fellows, an award recognizing 21 exceptionally creative individuals with a track record of achievement and the potential for significant contributions in the future. Rick Lowe (ACA 2011) is a public artist who reinvented community revitalization as an art form by transforming a long-neglected neighborhood in Houston into a visionary amalgam of arts venue, community support center, and historic preservation initiative.

Niurca Marquez

Niurca Marquez, ACA Community Artist-in-Residence

Experimental Flamenco based theater performance artist Niurca Marquez has been working throughout our area since August.  Her art pushes the limits of dance and flamenco aesthetics into an experimental space that shatters stereotypes and takes us on a journey of cultural memory and how it is passed from one generation to the next.
