The Artisan Lounge, a burgeoning artistic community with over 8,000 square feet of studio and gallery space, has assembled a panel of visionaries to explore the age-old relationship between spirituality and art, its present-day iterations, and multifaceted impact on Miami’s thriving art and culture scene. The panel discussion, entitled “The Spirit of Art in Miami,” will take place at The Artisan Lounge during the Downtown Miami First Friday Art Walk on April 4th at 7 p.m. It will be preceded by a reception starting at 6:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Moderated by The Artisan Lounge Co-Director Giselle Delgado, an industry expert, panelists include:

o Vesna Vera, artist and resident at The Artisan Lounge

o Adriana Carvalho, artist and resident at The Artisan Lounge

o Danilo Gonzalez, artist and gallery owner of Wynwood Warehouse Project

o Abena Robinson, president elect of Dade Art Educators Association

o Jesus Manuel Rojas, art blogger and spirituality guru

Also, Artist Vesna Vera and Sculptor Adriana Carvalho will have their works featured in a joint and topically relevant exhibition. Vera will present “Meditations,” a colorful and ethereal series featuring a dozen timeless and classically inspired paintings; while Carvalho’s iconic metal dress sculptures are the center point of an interactive workshop that invites viewers to participate in her installation entitled “Faith.”

“Art has elevated Miami and its collective conscience. There’s a heightened interest in creativity, innovation and community, which can be likened to a spiritual awakening,” said Vera, who played an integral role in the development of this upcoming panel discussion. The Artisan Lounge Co-Director Giselle Delgado added, “through content-rich events like these, we hope to further establish our presence as a dynamic, progressive and innovative organization.”

The Artisan Lounge is located at 500 NE 1st Avenue in the Christ Fellowship building. Free parking is available onsite and it is conveniently located across the street from the College North Metromover station.
