In 2014 the SWAN Spoken Soul Showcase will be held at a unique location – cyberspace. To celebrate its seventh year and immense growth, SSF has prepared a full-on global assault and is taking the Showcase worldwide for the very first time. With the launch of Spoken Soul TV on the Festival’s website, the performances of this year’s SSF featured artists, including two DJs, an MC, three poets, a harp player, and three vocalists, as well as the works of the featured photographers, filmmakers, and visual artists, will be broadcasted to a bigger audience than ever before through a live, online broadcast. And Spoken Soul TV won’t stop there – you can continue to watch other SSF alumni events all year round, including interviews and panel discussions on marketing and other topics helpful to women artists around the world. The enhanced website will also offer several new features, including SSF Featured Artists, an archive of all the female artists who have participated in years past; the SWAN Sister Series, where SSF alumni can post about upcoming exhibits and events; the Spoken Soul Blog, an interactive space where artists, alumni, partners, and sponsors will be able to share exciting news; and Spoken Soul Radio, playing featured SSF singers and DJs. The SWAN Spoken Soul Showcase Vol. 7: SWAN Day Miami, will be an unparalleled and truly HER-storic event – a live arts festival that the entire world can attend.

The Coconut Grove Arts Festival® will celebrate 50 years of history and tradition in the arts, featuring internationally acclaimed Brazilian Artist Romero Britto as this year’s poster artist. The Arts Festival will host more than 380 international artists, all exhibiting their finest work. In addition to world-class art, entertainment will include live musical performances by pop sensation Cris Cab and culinary demonstrations by local chef favorites such as Giorgio Rapicavoli of Miami’s Eating House.

The Coconut Grove Arts Festival® celebrates 50 years of culture and tradition this President’s Day weekend by enticing and satisfying Miami’s imagination and appetite for visual, culinary and performing arts. The 50th anniversary three-day event promises to bring the most talented and creative artists from all over the world to Coconut Grove on February 16-18, 2013. In honor of the festival’s half-century milestone, the festival committee has selected world-renowned Brazilian artist Romero Britto to create the official poster for the 2013 festival.

“Coconut Grove was home to my very first studio in Miami, and I am truly humbled to be a part of the 50 year celebration of one of Miami’s oldest tradition in the arts,” said Britto. Despite being an international sensation, Britto is no stranger to the Coconut Grove Arts Festival. In 2007, Britto first collaborated with the festival by creating its official poster. His work, “Coconut Grove Bay,” was inspired by the city of Miami‘s beauty, beaches, and tranquility. The painting serves as a token of Britto’s appreciation to the vibrant city and artistic culture of the area.

“Our festival is truly a celebration of the all forms of the arts, introducing masters in all mediums and genres,” said Monty Trainer, president of the Arts Festival. “Locals and visiting guests alike will appreciate the internationally celebrated visual, musical and culinary collections.”

Complementing the visual arts on display will be the musical talents of Miami-native pop-star Cris Cab, who will perform his fusion of pop, reggae and soul on the main stage in Peacock Park. At only 19 years old, Cab’s recent accolades include being the mentee of internationally acclaimed producer Pharell Williams, recording alongside Wyclef Jean and supporting acts like O.A.R. Matisyahu, T-Pain, and Gym Class Heroes. He was also recently named by MTV as one of “The Most Criminally Overlooked Artists of 2012,” with his recently released full-length mix-tape “Echo Boom” receiving more than 300,000 downloads last year.

In addition to the entertainment, festival attendees can also satisfy their appetites for gourmet cuisine in the popular Culinary Pavilion. This area of the festival invites nationally renowned chefs to prepare their famous specialty dishes. This year’s chefs will represent the hottest restaurants and hotels from South Florida, including popular local chef Giorgio Rapicavoli, founder of the pop-up restaurant Eating House, and winner of The Food Network’s “Chopped”. Chef Douglas Rodriguez of de Rodriguez Cuba, Chef John Richards of TUYO and the Short Chef™, among many others, will also be participating in this year’s festival.
