The Black Key Group (Whitney Lykins and Isabella Acker) created a special host committee of young, savvy professionals throughout South Florida to assist in creating, executing, and facilitating Pop-Up Piano Miami. From curating artists to securing locations for the pianos, the following list of people volunteered on the committee: Patricia Baro (Mixed Media Collective); Gaudi Castro (HEARD.); Meris Thomas (Freelancer – Event Production); Arnaud Pages (Macias Advertising); Daniel Rivero (WLRN); and Jessica Wade Pfeffer (Jessica Wade Inc.).
Miami Iron Side was founded by design and real estate visionary Ofer Mizrahi. It is a destination created by an assemblage of old deserted commercial buildings in an underserved neighborhood. The complex is self-designed by occupants and has had extensive reforesting creating a façade of retro architecture. Miami Iron Side was transformed to become a vibrant, creative, and trendy live & work complex. Enclaves of creative and business-focused minds alike have come together and created a neighborhood which encourages organic growth with a sense of community.
