PARTNER INFORMATION

Life Is Art
Life Is Art is presenting a number of excellent local artists showcasing a wide variety of visual art styles.

Yo Miami & Kondoit
A hub for local artists, Yo Miami has grown since 2011 into an ecosystem where creatives can get access to resources & contacts to help them reach the next level of success in their careers. By working with businesses, nonprofi t & community organizations we are able to foster a network which enables us to create opportunities throughout the year for artists to demonstrate their talents in ways that add value to our neighborhoods. With several monthly events at various venues around Wynwood, we continually o ffer a platform where emerging artists can reach a wider audience. At the same time, we show business owners the benefits associated with incorporating arts programming into their operations, & help foster the growth of our local communities through this synergy. For Dwntwn Arts Fair we will be hand picking a lineup from Miami’s top artists. These artists will be live painting and displaying their work throughout the weekend. We encourage you to stop by our booth to meet these up and coming talented creatives to discover what inspires and motivates them, and watch them work live and in person.

Buskerfest
We strive for a connected, thriving urban core where the streets of Miami are active and enlivened with local performers, enjoyed by people of all ages and walks of life. We envision a joyous place that is reflective of the tropical urban landscape and attractive to locals and visitors alike.

Celebrate Diversity Miami
Celebrate Diversity Miami’s 2015 Photo‐voice Exhibit focuses on celebrating the diversity of our greater Miami community with a unique array of large-scale photographs. It features 60 beautiful, vibrant images submitted by residents, schools, and organizations from across Miami-Dade County. Join us in celebrating our incredible culturally and ethnically diverse neighborhoods. Give a #DiversityMiami shout-out with a picture or postcard, and share what makes the place you call home awesome!

FoodSpark
By way of delicious food and great conversation, FoodSpark Miami will provide a fun, interactive gathering space for diverse groups of greater Miami residents to connect with one another, discuss key social issues with fellow citizens, and figure out how we can collaborate to improve the quality of life in our local neighborhoods. FoodSpark Miami is made possible in part by the 8-80 Cities Emerging City Champions 2015 Fellowship, which is funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

Indiegals
Every indie needs a hand, and we¹ve partnered with artists from all over to bring a uniquely curated expo of artisanal goods, earthy designs, and conscious driven showcases. We¹ve connected with the indigenous tribe from Valle de Sibundoy in the Alto Putumayo region of Colombia, to bring the tribe’s delicately handcrafted jewelry, organic essential oils, and raw incense, led by the tribe¹s artist Yolimar Loreto & the tribe-women. Also from Colombia, we present for the first time in the U.S Hagakure Home a small company based in Medellin whose home décor is derived from organic materials, raw fabrics, and designed with earthy elements. We¹re bringing goods for the home and lifestyle. Then a young, hip, and hippie indie group of artists called Gypsy Halos will be dancing around our tent expressing their love and spirit through flower crowns, leafy jewelry designs, and airy fashions. This movement is not just focused on the younger generation. We¹ve connected with our baby boomer warrior woman who¹s love for mother Earth has helped her develop an artistic eye for floral designs; Esperanza (Hope) will bring to our expo her creative orchid, succulents, air flower gardens. Last but not least, our tent will feature an art showcase called Monsterz, an Anti-bullying picturesque story created by Miami’s local Tuli. We will feature other random goodies, our farmer friends may stop by with organic goods, or maybe we¹ll have a pop-up artist color us alive! This is what Indie Gals does, we dig deep into the roots and help elevate indie creatives so that we can all break through the noise. Everyone deserves to feel the sunshine of success on their face.

Fridge Art Fair –
Fridge Art Fair was born in 2013 on New York’s Lower East Side. The inaugural Fair was filled to capacity with exhibitors who answered Founder Eric Ginsburg’s challenge, “Can you fit into the Fridge?” at Kazuko Miyamoto’s small but storied storefront, Gallery OneTwentyEight. The Fair has gathered a growing following of exhibitors, sponsors and visitors through two more New York editions, as well as two previous Miami fairs in 2013 and 2014. So far, each Fridge Art Fair has coincided with Frieze New York in May and Art Basel Miami in December.

Fridge Art Fair is the boutique, soft sell, dog-friendly satellite fair dubbed as, “The baby who has refused to obey orders to stand outside the door while the adults confabulate inside,” by Artinfo.

Fridge Art Fair Founder and Artist Eric Ginsburg, known for the uniquely soulful and painterly qualities of his portraits, Eric credits Sol LeWill as a patron and friend who commissioned works, as well as a mentor, and, along with Eric’s “pen pal” William Wegman, as “kind of a hero.”

Ginsburg studied with Maureen Gallace at NYU and received his MFA from Columbia University in 2005. His works are found in public & private collections around the wold including: Herb & Dorothy Vogel (now in the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Art);Galerie Nieu Schoten (Ten Boom Museum, The Netherlands); the New Britain Museum of American Art; The Cartin Collection; Cindy Sherman; William Wegman; Lisa Spellman; and the Francis J. Greenburger Collection, Paula Cooper and the LeWitt Collection.

Sponsors –
This edition of Fridge Art Fair Miami is being sponsored by Ball & Chain, Barlington Group, Charles Group Hotels, Lose Style Events, Publix, and Holiday Inn returns as the Fair’s premier sponsor after co-hosting Fridge New York 2015.

Future Painting, is the culmination of 4 years of research into video mapped paintings and will feature various approaches to integrating video and technology into mixed-media collage paintings. Through the use of video projections on top of physical paintings and translucent collages created directly on the face of video screens, Justin Wood transforms and twists the physical composition into a mesmerizing psychedelic experience. These works challenge the viewers perception of where the physical world ends and where the digital world begins and asks the question, Can painting and video exist at the same time? The show will also feature a site specific interactive wall painting that will respond to the depth and motion of the viewer through the use of a Kinect sensor, and allow the viewer to transform the video with their movement.

St. Stephen’s Art Show on Sunday, February 15, 2015.

About St. Stephen’s Art Show:  “Art is in the Heart – What began as a hot dog and refreshment stand on St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church property during the weekend of the Coconut Grove Arts Festival has blossomed into a top ranked outdoor arts and fine crafts festival in its own right. Most recently ranked 8th in the country in Sunshine Artist Magazine’s “Best 200 Fine Art Shows”, the St. Stephen’s Art & Craft Show plays an important role in the South Florida Art Scene that takes place in Coconut Grove over all three days of Presidents’ Day Weekend.

The 2014 Show, held annually on Presidents’ Day Weekend, takes place Saturday, February 15th through Monday, February 17th, 2014 9:30 am to 6:00 pm. Visitors will enjoy the artwork of over 160 renowned fine artists and craft people, an international food court, children’s activity area, an authentic English tea room and musical entertainment, all on the shady campus of St. Stephen’s in the heart of Coconut Grove.

The Art Show is St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church’s longest standing cultural outreach event. Hundreds of volunteers from the greater Miami community help make the event a success. Beverage sales proceeds have allowed the Art Show to contribute more than $55,000 to the St. Stephen’s AIDS Ministry.

The Art Show plays an important role in helping St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church achieve its vision of becoming “The Heart of the Grove” by offering a variety of cultural, spiritual, entertainment and public service programming to the community. St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church invites all people to join in a life of worship, mercy, justice, learning and service.”

PRESS RELEASE
Major Collectors from New York, Miami and Abroad Make Important Acquisitions

Art Wynwood, the annual Presidents Day Weekend art fair, presented over 60 galleries, from 9 countries representing over 25 cities, featured a wide breadth of quality works from both established and mid-career cutting edge artists. The Fourth Edition reported record attendance, attracting over 35,000 enthusiasts and some of the world’s most prominent collectors; as well as a strong show of patrons from the international clientele in town for the Yacht & Brokerage Show. Art Wynwood has secured its position as the most important contemporary art fair in the southeast during the winter months by offering the most discerning international collectors, art enthusiasts and seasoned cultural travelers the best opportunity to discover, explore and collect some of the most significant art works of our time.

“The City of Miami and The Wynwood Arts District continues to deliver for our participating dealers while quenching the thirst of an active international art collecting community who are visiting or residing in South Florida each winter,” said Nick Korniloff, Executive VP of Art Miami LLC. “This past weekend proved that Miami continues to develop as a serious cultural destination outside the month of December”

“For the fourth edition of Art Wynwood, the enthusiasm, focus and momentum of our local, regional and international galleries has made the fair an exceptional success,” said Grela Orihuela, Art Wynwood Fair Director. “Our clear determination was to continue to grow and shape this fair into an event embodying the tremendous art character and talent of its Miami roots.”

Christie’s International Real Estate hosted an interactive booth at the entrance of Art Wynwood, exhibiting international luxury residential real estate offerings, and a new addition to the fair was a special exhibition titled SOLO Miami where a selection of local galleries, including Emerson Dorsch, GUCCIVUITTON, Primary, Fredric Snitzer Gallery and Spinello Projects, exhibited side-by-side to present solo exhibitions premiering exciting new work by consequential local artists.

“Major collectors like Mera Rubell, Beth Rudin DeWoody, Jorge Perez and Jessica Goldman came through the fair. We are thrilled that Susan and Michael Hort have continued to support Farley Aguilar with their acquisition of Mourning, one of the three large oil on canvas painting that were featured in Spinello’s booth. Beth DeWoody also acquired a large oil painting, Patriarchy, as well as several ink on mylar paintings. In total, we placed 20 paintings – sold out!” said gallery owner Anthony Spinello. “Judging from the packed aisles, there is definitely an audience and most importantly people are buying.”

Famed gallery owner Fredric Snitzer, who also participated in the SOLO Miami exhibition said, “The reason I was happy to be a part of the fair this year was in the choice they made of selecting a few galleries from the community and having each focus on showing a Miami artist. It gives a snapshot and cross section of what’s happening here in a brief moment.” Other new exhibitions this year included, “La Habana in Waiting,” a solo exhibition by New York-based Chinese artist, Quentin Shih, in collaboration with participating gallery ART LEXÏNG. In his most recent series, “La Habana in Waiting,” Shih explores the tensions and melancholy in Cuban citizens sitting for an artist’s lens; the polarities between expressive individuals struggling for identity within a Communist regime. The fair continued its collaboration with Cash, Cans & Candy, an international festival of street art from Vienna, Austria, presented by Galerie Ernst Hilger. Curator Katrin- Sophie Dworczak of Cash, Cans & Candy lined up famed street artist, Boicut, to create original works onsite at the fair. Esteemed gallery owner, Bernice Steinbaum, presented a design installation by young artists, 10 percent of the proceeds of her sales from special project “Art in the Natural World and Cultured Settings” will go to the Museum of Art and Design in the Freedom Tower. Artists sold at her project included Enrique Gomez de Molina, Aurora Molina and Carrie Sieh among others. Jessica Goldman Srebnick, CEO of Goldman Properties, aligned once again with the fair and sponsored the Wynwood Walls Go! Shop pop up on-site at the Art Wynwood Pavilion. The Go! Shop invited the public to shop the Walls, through a curated collection of limited art editions, inspired and created by the artists of Wynwood Walls.

Lastly, Art Wynwood partnered with Miami Children’s Museum to provide a fun and interactive kid’s center – ArtRageous Kids Center.

Copyright and Street Art

Street art is a hot commodity in Miami, featured in our neighborhoods and in art auctions, fairs and events. It is also featured in advertisements, promotions and in other ways not always endorsed by the artists. Can street art be copyrighted? Artist’s rights have been in the news due to two well known law cases pitting street artists against corporate entities. The slippery nature of copyright law has
left many wondering where to draw the line. There are no easy answers. Join us for a moot court style forum to explore this important topic.

Featured speakers: Steve Eisenberg, Esq. & Jose Talavera, Esp. of Lipscomb Eisenberg & Baker PL; Jaime Gekas, Esq., Foley & Lardner LLP.

Along with curated art tours with street art specialist Sebastien Laboureau.

Networking cocktail reception follows event, a chance to mix and mingle with artists, attorneys, business professionals and others in creative industries.

64th Annual Beaux Arts Festival of Art 1/17/15-1/18/15

64th Annual Beaux Arts Festival of Art
logo-with-taglineV22January 17-18, 2015, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Grounds of the Lowe Art Museum
1301 Stanford Drive
University of Miami Campus
Coral Gables, FL
Admission and Parking: Free
www.BeauxArtsMiami.org
The 64th annual Beaux Arts Festival of Art presented by City National Bank will bring more than 220 fine art juried exhibitors to the grounds of the Lowe Art Museum on the University of Miami campus.

Widely recognized as one of the region’s most popular outdoor art exhibitions and a South Florida tradition, the Beaux Arts Festival of Art attracts thousands of visitors annually and offers works in 10 mediums for a variety of budgets. This year’s festival will feature live music in the main-stage tent, children’s entertainment – including free art activities for children ages 4-12 in the UHealth Family Fun Zone – and a variety of dining options, making this event ideal for art enthusiasts and families alike.

Proceeds from the festival benefit the Lowe Art Museum, a Beaux Arts partner for 63 years. Particularly newsworthy this year: a $1.5 million gift from Beaux Arts, the museum’s founding support group, has now enabled the creation of the endowed position of Beaux Arts Director and Chief Curator of the Lowe Art Museum, Jill Deupi. The gift to make the directorship endowment will remain in perpetuity and support increased programming, community outreach, facility upgrades and other projects at the Lowe.

Funds raised from the festival will also help underwrite “Hands On!” – Beaux Arts’ signature program for children from underserved schools. ”Hands On!” introduces these Miami-Dade students to the world of art and museums via field trips to the Lowe Art Museum.

In addition to the featured artists selected by a panel of jurors, festival visitors will also enjoy the popular Student Artist Showcase presented by BNY Mellon, featuring up to 150 pieces from talented Miami-Dade middle and high school students, on display inside the Lowe Art Museum throughout the weekend. A celebration honoring the students’ art will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 13, 2015, at the Lowe. Additional sponsors of the Student Artist Showcase include Neiman Marcus and Joanna’s Marketplace.

The festival was originally called the “Clothesline Sale,” as Beaux Arts volunteers used clotheslines to display the works of local artists in front of the Lowe. Over 60 years later, the 100% volunteer-run, annual festival has evolved and is considered one of the top outdoor fine art shows in the country.

In addition to Presenting Sponsor City National Bank, Featured Sponsors for the 2015 Beaux Arts Festival of Art include Mercedes-Benz of Coral Gables and Cutler Bay, and UHealth, with additional support from Pollo Tropical and the University of Miami.

Grants include the City of Coral Gables, the Batchelor Foundation, the Cobb Family Foundation, Citizens Interested in Arts, and Publix Supermarkets Charities.

Founded in 1952, Beaux Arts is a 100% volunteer organization made up of 100 women and over 300 associates, who fund art enrichment, appreciation and financial assistance to the Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami. Through major fundraising initiatives such as the annual Beaux Arts Ball and Beaux Arts Festival of Art on the University of Miami Campus, the organization is the largest group financial donor to the museum. In 2014, a $1.5 million gift from Beaux Arts enabled the creation of the endowed position of Beaux Arts Director and Chief Curator of the Lowe Art Museum – a gift that will remain in perpetuity and support increased programming, community outreach, facility upgrades and other projects at the Lowe. Beaux Arts also won the “White Award,” with which the organization was recognized as the University of Miami’s most effective donor, surpassing the $5 million mark of funds contributed to the Lowe Museum. To date, Beaux Arts has hosted over 25,000 children at the Beaux Arts Art Camp and hosted over 5,000 students from Miami-Dade schools for our art appreciation outreach program, “Hands On!.” For more information, visit www.BeauxArtsMiami.org.

The sets will feature Phish songs arranged for solo piano and several “jam transcriptions”, including a complete rendition of the ‘Tahoe Tweezer’ during the final hour, beginning at 4 pm.

Phish Art shows have been held since 2003 with great success. Unique posters, pins, shirts, stickers and much more are made for Phish shows, making the PhanArt Poster and Pin Exhibition: Miami, a must-attend event during Phish tour. Produced by Pete Mason, founder of PhanArt and author of PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish, these PhanArt exhibitions have been held in Atlantic City, Chicago and Las Vegas over the past 14 months and represent a continued effort to promote and exhibit original and unique concert art from a wide variety of artists. The eclectic artists featured at this event show the broad scope of Phish related art and capture the inspiration of the band in their art. Phish’s creative fan base makes amazing art inspired by the band, their music and the locales they play.

In keeping with the great tradition and success of past art shows, the PhanArt Poster and Pin Exhibition: Miami, will offer free entry to all patrons and tubes available for purchase. Special edition works only available at the show can be viewed on PhanArt.net and acquired exclusively at the PhanArt show.

Free shuttle buses provided to and from Mana Miami, Art Miami, and Art Basel Miami Beach.

Forward-thinking and unique, the inaugural Mana Miami art fair presents a dynamic agenda of exhibitions, conversations, and events organized by Mana Contemporary. Held at Mana’s Wynwood campus, a 140,000-square-foot facility that covers 22 acres, the fair offers collectors a diverse roster of programming that echoes the art organization’s commitment to the creative process.

Mana Miami includes three distinct displays: Mana Monumental, a selection of large-scale works by artists who have a studio in, exhibited at, or are otherwise connected to Mana; GLE at Mana, recent projects from the celebrated screen-printing studio Gary Lichtenstein Editions; and Dirty Geometry, a survey of twenty-three Latin American artists who reject traditional geometric style in favor of a playful, erotic ethos. Daily roundtable discussions, called Mana Sessions, explore themes such as alternative museum pedagogy, the evolution of independent art publications, and social media-driven shifts in aesthetic perception. An exclusive VIP Lounge doubles as a rendezvous for guests to connect with participating artists. Conceived as an alternative to the traditional art fair model, Mana Miami explores the making process of a contemporary art community that is at once relevant, progressive, and profound.

Mana Sessions include:

Art Africa Miami Arts Fair Set To Weave Art and Culture Into The Fabric Of The #HistoricOvertown Cultural Movement

#HistoricOvertownSoulBasel Is The Cultural Epicenter of Cultural Influence For Arts, Culture and Music

Miami, Fl-November 18, 2014-The Urban Collective continues to invigorate the cultural landscape of the Historic Overtown community with the anticipation of this year’s 2014 Art Africa Miami Arts Fair(AAMAF), taking place December 3-7, 2014 at 801 NW 3rd Ave, Miami, Fl 33136. The AAMAF remains relevant in its 4th year, and continues to push boundaries, leading the way for innovation, creativity and inclusion of some of the top art artist influencers of the African and Caribbean Diaspora. The Art Africa Arts Fair  is funded by the Southeast Overtown/ Park West Community Redevelopment Agency This year’s fair falls under the marketing campaign and moniker of #HistoricOvertownSoulBasel and was orchestrated by The Urban Collective’s CEO, Neil Hall, as a collaborative partnership between the City of Miami Commissioner Keon Hardemon, Southeast Overtown Parkwest Community Redevelopment Agency and the Black Archives of art cultural offerings throughout Overtown during Art Basel in December. #HistoricOvertownSoulBasel celebrates Overtown’s music, art and cultural vibe. The Urban Collective is a social conscious design, art and culture lifestyle brand created to inform, inspire and engage underserved communities in the power of the arts to transform their environment.

In 2011, visionary, architect and creator of AAMAF, Neil Hall launched the inaugural AAMAF that showcased engaging and thought provoking art that served a continuum of the Black, Caribbean, social, political, hip hop artistic strand that spoke to the Black presence missing from the Art Basel script. The AAMAF narrative has ignited a spark in the urban art community resulting in the creation of art fairs like Prizm, Kroma, Fusion Mia, Global Caribbean and Multitudes added to this cultural revolution. The wave of celebrations continues with the appointment of Babacar M’Bow as the Director of MOCA North Miami and also the Greater Miami Convention and Visitor’s Bureau’s Cultural Department’s marketing campaign Art of Black Miami. This years location for AAMAF was make possible by a partnership with the Mt. Zion Developments, Incorporated.

“This year’s effort continues to sustain the dynamic discourse of the AAMAF narrative and artistic strands of Black and Caribbean culture revolution”, boldly stated by cultural influencer, Neil Hall.

“Art, music, dance, and culture once reflected the vibrancy of the Overtown community. The Art Africa Arts Fair assists Historic Overtown in highlighting such a rich history while ensuring it participates in the blossoming of a new era of excellence,” stated by District 5, City of Miami Commissioner Keon Hardemon.
“All across the country, art has been a catalyst for the rebirth of communities that have been disinvested,” said Clarence Woods, SEOPW CRA Executive Director “ We see Art Africa as one of the sparks that will help to light the flames of economic prosperity here in Overtown.

AAMAF opens Wednesday, December 3, 2014 with a reception from 7pm-10pm,immediately following the opening night of #HistoricOvertownSoulBasel: A Celebration of Art, Music that will showcase the works of the late Overtown artist Purvis Young at the Lyric Theatre. The AAMAF gallery opens daily from 11am-7pm.

Other cultural offerings during the fair include a live mural being curated by Kyle Holbrook, CEO of Moving Lives of Kids Community Mural Project; artist’s talks produced by Caribbean-American intellectual, Dr. Carol Boyce Davies and Soul Basel Brunch and Conversation.

The exhibit will open on December 3rd to coincide with Art Basel Miami Beach 2014

Impulse, Reason, Sense, Conflict. Abstract Art from the Ella Fontanals-Cisneros Collection attempts to focus on the typical features of abstraction that still permeate in art production today and define it as a movement instead of an aesthetic category. The exhibit is divided in five areas: Abstract Impulses is dedicated to the crisis in representation and the rupture in mimetic representation. Laboratory of Reason refers to the questioning of the nature, essence and even the existence of art. Uncommon Senses relates to the integration and crossover of other mediums and other art forms that required the use of multiple senses, both from its makers and art’s viewers. Spatial Conflicts touches on Abstraction as a radical change in the conception of spatiality. The last section Expanded Field deals with many artists’ experimentation with non-traditional media like photography, film and collage. This group of works will only exist in a separate form in the catalogue. In the exhibition space they will be presented within the other curatorial groupings.

The exhibition includes 101 pieces by 72 artists from different generations and latitudes, who share their interpretations and philosophies of abstraction. This exhibit will also be the first CIFO exhibit curated by the foundation itself.
