Thousands of images of timeless masterpieces were destroyed at the Opening Reception, of The Art of Destruction, during Wynwood’s Second Saturday ArtWalk. But sadly, these were Picasso’s, Warhol’s, Cindy Sherman’s, DaVinci’s, you know, artists from “away”. No one local. We can’t have that. No. No. No.

At “BYOB Night” – Bring Your Own Britto” to destroy, there will be a massacre of local art glitterati from 5 to 7 p.m., when folks such as MoCA director Bonnie Clearwater, art dealer Fredric Snitzer, and local artist Hernan Bas also will get their mugs torn to pieces in the shredder towers.

Don’t get so upset. It’s all in fun. The whole point of the Art of Destruction installation is to have participants make new art from old art. So why not make art by shredding the images of local artists themselves? And while we’re at it, why not the local king makers and collectors too? Certainly they’re not above being made into art. Attendees are invited to bring their own images of Britto – and other artists, art collectors, art writers, and critics to shred.

Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
