Major League Soccer meets the United Systems of Independent Soccer Leagues when the Miami Fusion and the Miami Breakers take to the field for an exhibition game. Keep an eye out for flaky Fusion midfielder Carlos Valderrama, the player whose behavior is sometimes as wild as his blond corkscrew curls. (He should be back in action following his little disagreement with new Fusion coach Ivo Wortmann, which cost him $10,000 and almost got him traded.) It's all about raising money. No, not for Valderrama's bank account. The proceeds collected from this Miami Breakers vs. Miami Fusion game will go to bankroll youth soccer programs in Miami Beach. The ball gets rolling at 7:30 p.m. at Flamingo Park Memorial Stadium, Michigan Avenue and Twelfth Street, Miami Beach. Admission is five dollars. Call 305-532-5080. (NK)

Christine Federighi knows clay. The sculptor has been up to her elbows in the stuff for the past 30 years. Federighi, a professor in the University of Miami's department of art and art history and a recipient of numerous grants and awards, maintains studios in Miami and Colorado, but she shows off her work during the Florida Artists Series exhibition at the Lowe Art Museum (University of Miami, 1301 Stanford Dr., Coral Gables). Her figures range from angular and spare wall formations to elaborately decorated spheres painted in lush jewel tones. Images of houses, plant forms, and depictions of healthy cells (she is now fighting cancer) influence her work as well. Admission is five dollars. Call 305-284-3535. (
