Miami artist Xavier Cortada will return to serve as Emcee (his third year doing so) for the Education Fund's "ART OF FOUND OBJECTS" ART EXHIBITION & AWARDS CEREMONY.

The annual art exhibition combines the power of a child’s imagination with the ultimate recycling program, as each original work on display is crafted from materials ”found” at The Education Fund's Ocean Bank Center for Educational Materials, a warehouse stocked with donated supplies. Numerous local public school teachers have shopped for free at the Center since 1993. This year the exhibit showcased more than 200 original pieces of quality work created by students and teachers from 50 Miami-Dade County K-12 public schools.

ABOUT THE EDUCATION FUND:
Since 1985, The Education Fund has worked side-by-side with the private sector to direct
resources where they are needed most in Miami-Dade schools. Their mission is to design
and implement initiatives to improve our schools and bring excellence to public
education in Miami-Dade. The Education Fund engages the entire community in making
educational excellence a top priority and ensuring that every child learns and succeeds in
the Miami-Dade County public schools. The Education Funds programs benefit all of the
390+ schools, 22,000+ teachers and 340,000+ students in Miami-Dade County Public
Schools.
