Art from a new perspective

Paper Pavement: The History of Miami’s Streets Preserved Through Art

To Gilmore, the project is a “way of being in three different time 
periods at once.”

He described how the prints reflect the past by showing the history of 
the streets and their use. The steamrolling process then records the 
streets in their current historical moment, while the artist and viewers 
of the work are poignantly aware that the area will be dramatically 
changed in the imminent future.

Due to the tactile nature of the prints, “the projects ended up being in 
great conversation with each other,” says Ricardo Mor of MCAD. “This 
way, people who are blind will be able to experience the art as well.

“It was the first day of school,” said Elizabeth Holkko, mother of 
Maddie Vorase. “I dropped Maddie off at Lakeview and her principal said 
‘oh, Maddie won a contest!’ I’m like, ‘really? What kind of contest?'”

Seven-year old Lakeview student Maddie Vorase recently won first place 
in a nationwide self-portrait contest that featured 300 competitors. 
While she’s already an accomplished young artist, Maddie has been blind 
since birth due to a condition called optic nerve hypoplasia.
