Sixty-four FIU Honors College students worked with 10 of Miami’s most notable artists at the sixth annual A&V exhibition.

The A&V 2011 exhibition will feature the works of Daniel Arsham, José Bedia, Ivan Toth Depeña, Jacin Giordano, Fabian Peña, Karen Rifas, Cristina Lei Rodriguez, John Sanchez, Jen Stark and Antonia Wright. Several of the artists have created works specifically for this year’s exhibition.
