Le Petit Papillon Montessori School, Miami Beachâ€™s highly renowned Montessori School is thrilled to announce their second annual family-friendly event, â€œStreet Funk,â€ as a complement to Art Basel (Miami Beachâ€™s internationally acclaimed art show).
Following the tremendous success of last yearâ€™s â€œDark Side of the Rainbowâ€ showcase, Le Petit Papillon is once again providing an engaging artistic venue for families with children of all ages during Art Basel. The schoolâ€™s mission is to create an unforgettable evening guaranteed to stimulate childrenâ€™s senses and expose art appreciation through art and musical expression. Parents and children are invited to walk the enchanting grounds of the campus and observe photography installations, a cinematic documentary on oversize inflatable screens, and literary works by Le Petit Papillonâ€™s savvy toddler, Pre-K and elementary students.
Preview exhibits including â€œDid You See That Funkâ€ and â€œBaby Funk,â€ black and white photography installations; a poetry installation titled â€œFunk and Itâ€™s Junk;â€ and â€œStreet Funk,â€ a film capturing student interpretations of funky breaking dancing moves. Students will also take center stage alongside locally renowned Miami street artist Daniel Fila of Krave Art (www.kraveart.com), as part of a live art mural presentation. Plus, enjoy a captivating dance off by Expression of Talentâ€™s Break Dancers, a professional team of entertainers guaranteed to get your feet moving while they dance to the beats of DJ John Bordonaro.
The event is FREE to the public. Gourmet tastings will be served by The Village Stand (www.thevillagestand.com) and SYLTBAR (www.syltbar.com). Families are encouraged to wear funky streetwear attire.If you love Soul Of Miami, please consider leaving a testimonial.
