Last Art Walk I was really inspired â€¦ over and over my visits to Art Walk have proved that under any given circumstance it is gunna be RAW and REAL, ours and NOWâ€¦ right here in our hometown Miami – during just my 1/2 hr. show on the Panther Cafe Stage during last months Art Walk hundreds of people passed in front; they inspired me too! Their dance moves and face paints, wacky costumes or not â€¦ made me realize what makes Art Walk so exciting is that it is just that – ART WALKING – everyone is part of “the Show” artists and viewers alikeâ€¦ Amoungst the 40+ people who showed up for my show, 24 people were total “virgins” to Art Walk and had never been or even heard about it – they were all blown away – There is so much amazing art to see!
So the idea for a “marcha”, a Carnival style procession leading through the streets, stoping at designated spots for a “closer view” to end at a final destination where everyone celebrates amidst art, listening to music, being a part of the vibe poped into my head.
There is tonza new graffitti ‘n fun awaiting us right here in our front yard – Wynwood Art Disrtict . . . Let’s Celebrate the life we have Carnival / Mardi Gras Miami Style!!! Why? Porque la vida ES un CARNAVAL … get all our friends together and have some fun!!!
The plan â€¦ we all meet at ICL Studio; Us, our fav. peeps, their coolest, n closest most colorful peeps. From there we mobilize down the “Avenida” in the heart of the Wynwood Arts District during Feb. Art Walk. . . drummers, tambourins, and music, feathers and beads, sparkles and boas, sunglasses and MIA Hats and body paint to channel our Miami Carnival vibe. . Gunna check out all the killer new street art, hit a few iconicle galleries climaxing with a Niki EM – POP UP CONCERT and then tonz of multi media deliciousness.
