Wynwood Mural Fest is honored to unveil a larger than life tribute mural to late Champion fighter and activist Muhammad Ali painted by Artist Hiero Veiga for Ali’s Birthday weekend.

The 40ft wide x 15ft tall artwork is on view at 426 NW 25TH ST, Miami, FL 33127 in Miami’s Wynwood Art District. Titled ‘Be your own Champion’, the mural is one of 10 new project sites featuring the work of more than 60 artists painted in connection with Wynwood Mural Fest 2020, during what would have traditionally been Miami Art Basel Week.

Born January 17, 1942, boxing legend Muhammad Ali had strong ties to Miami. In the 1960’s, Ali broke through race boundaries and transformed from a brash boxer to an outspoken political and religious activist while training on South Beach at the 5th Street Gym and living in Miami’s Allapattah and Overtown neighborhoods. Today, Ali remains a role model and source of inspiration to members of marginalized communities.

The Ali mural is produced by Stephanie Kassoy (Nekto Collective), with support from Glayson LeRoy (Galera Collective); Lead Camera & Editor, Connor Ray (@thecolorblnd); and B-Camera + Drone Pilot, David Sepa (@davids.visuals).

Project video premiers next month on HYPEBEAST.

The much-anticipated Empire Social Lounge is the newest project by the proprietors
of Casa De Montecristo by Prime Cigar & Whiskey Bar

South Miami welcomes Empire Social Lounge, the second Miami location by the founders of the Prime Cigar brand. Empire Social is bringing a dose of “Sophisticated Relaxation” to South Miami. Proprietors Jason Reznik, Ryan Leeds and Peter Berntsen will proudly unveil Empire Social (which is the evolution of the Prime Cigar brand). Hours of operation Sunday – Saturday, 12:00 Noon until close.

“Sophisticated Relaxation” is a motto created by Empire Social/Prime Cigars founders, Jason Reznik and Ryan Leeds.It was embraced by patrons of their first venture which was Prime Cigar Boca Raton, considered THE cigar & whiskey lounge in all of Florida. The popularity of Prime Cigar Boca Raton carried over to their second venture, the widely acclaimed Casa de Montecristo by Prime Cigar & Whiskey Bar in Brickell-Miami. The success of these two locations created a demand in the Magic City which will spawn the much-anticipated Empire Social Lounge.

The Empire Social brand is a sophisticated lounge, which features a walk-in humidor, full bar stocked with rare and hard to find whiskeys, member’s lounge, and patio. Custom furniture and design elements (which exude simple elegance) will please the cigar aficionados, or those looking for a unique experience, a rare whiskey, craft cocktails, or a nightcap. Empire Social is perfect anchor location for one of Miami’s most dynamic neighborhoods, Downtown Dadeland.
The owners and management are well known for being customer-centric which led to the commission of a state-of-the-art air control system for Empire Social Lounge. This innovative A/C replaces 100 percent of the air constantly to provide an environment which will curb smoke and create a comfortable environment for patrons.

The Prime Cigar/Empire Social brand was born out of the life experiences between father and son. Ryan Leeds and his father shared a close relationship, as they bonded over the love of premium cigars, fine spirits, traveling, and all things luxury. Ryan was inspired to bring together best elements of his travels under one roof. Today, guests come from all over the world to experience “Sophisticated Relaxation.”

Conversations at MOCA: Kelly Breez + Autumn Casey

Cost: Free

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is pleased to feature two South Florida artists – Autumn Casey and Kelly Breez – as part of its free, virtual “Conversations at MOCA” series on Oct. 22. The artists will be discussing stories their past, current and future work with MOCA North Miami’s Exhibitions and Project Manager Kevin Arrow.

The speakers include:

Kelly Breez is a multidisciplinary artist whose work chronicles the perfectly unholy attitude and landscape of South Florida, where the characters she grew up with left the decorum and prohibitions of elitist culture in the dust. She works in – and combines – illustration, sculpture, tufting, painting, and installation. She is currently in her second year as an Ambassador for the Vans Custom Culture program, and she recently completed a five-week residency at Anderson Ranch in Snowmass, Colorado. Her work has been shown during Miami Art Week at NADA Art Fair, The Faena Forum and the Juxtapoz Clubhouse. She has a permanent installation at Facebook’s Miami offices, as part of their Artist in Residency Program. She is represented by Primary Projects in Miami, where her latest solo show, “Any Major Dude Will Tell You,” opened in October 2020. Breez holds a BFA from New World School of the Arts.

Autumn Casey draws on the ambiguity of personal memory and pop-cultural ephemera, to challenge and question her subjectivity against the world at large. Her practice, which moves from sculpture to collage, as well as video and performance, considers the history of the found object and assemblage – redeploying existing materials or moments in unexpected, idiosyncratic ways. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the New World School of the Arts, Miami, FL. She is represented by Primary (Miami) where she has had two solo exhibitions, and was selected to have a solo booth at Art Wynwood in 2015. Her work has also been included ingroup exhibitions at The Pérez Art Museum Miami, FL; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami, FL; Vox Populi, Philadelphia, PA; the Anne Bryan Gallery, Philadelphia, PA, among others. Her work is collected by the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, The Pérez Art Museum Miami and in private collections in Miami and New York City.

Cost: Free

Join us for a virtual conversation and studio tour with iconic musical genius George Clinton, of Parliament and Funkadelic Records, and PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans. Clinton will share his studio space and introduce his visual art practice, including the series of work he has created in quarantine over the past six months. Get a firsthand look into the artistic world of the Godfather of Funk himself!

While the museum is currently closed to the public, this program will be offered remotely via Facebook Live and YouTube Live.

Become an Ambassador for African American Art today for an opportunity to participate in an intimate post-program conversation with Clinton. Your participation will help PAMM acquire and exhibit major works by African American artists for years to come.

7pm | Public Live Virtual Art Talk
8:05pm | Ambassadors Meet the Artist Virtual Reception

George Clinton was born on July 22, 1941, and is an iconic singer, songwriter, bandleader, and record producer. Recording as both Parliament and Funkadelic, Clinton revolutionized popular music during the ’70s and ’80s with an avant-garde style that continues today. His Parliament-Funkadelic collective (which primarily recorded under the distinct band names Parliament and Funkadelic) developed an influential and eclectic form of funk music during the 1970s that drew on science fiction, outlandish fashion, psychedelia, and surreal humor. For over five decades, his unparalleled sound has been cited as the DNA of Hip Hop and Urban Culture.

As a visual artist, Clinton’s body of work is as adventurous and eclectic as his music. Early on he designed the iconic Mothership spaceship for use as a centerpiece stage prop for Parliament-Funkadelic live performances. It is now on permanent display at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC.

Clinton is regarded as one of the foremost innovators of funk music. In 1977, he and Parliament-Funkadelic were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and then, in 2019, were honored with the pinnacle Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

She caught the attention of some big names in the music and entertainment business, opening shows for Michael McDonald (who also provided vocals on her recent EP), Kenny Loggins and Dennis Quaid and serving as a musical inspiration to Jeff Bridges who recently featured her on his Sleep Club website. Other notable performances include her 2014 appearance on America’s Got Talent, where she appeared in two televised episodes and advanced to Judgement Week; performing as an Emerging Artist at 2018’s Summerfest; singing backup vocals to Kenny Loggins at 2019’s Hawaii Songwriters Festival; performing at the renowned 30A Songwriters Festival along with Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile, Shawn Mullins, Livingston Taylor and more; opening a San Francisco 49ers game; and winning the 2015 Belk Southern Musician Showcase. In late 2019, she released her EP Au Naturel, produced by Chris Pelonis and Lost Coast Records and distributed by Jimmy Buffet’s Cherry Bomb Records.

Launched in April on Facebook Live, Happy Hour with The Galleria has successfully entertained thousands in the local community during the COVID-19 quarantine. Jackson will join previous Happy Hour with The Galleria virtual music performers Alexander Star, The Tim Charron Band and Tori Rossi Music and WILL PLUS. These archived recorded livestream performances can be found at facebook.com/GalleriaFtLauderdale.

The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale has already welcomed shoppers back with limited hours and additional safety measures according to government guidelines. Seasons 52, The Capital Grille and P.F. Chang’s China Bistro now offer full-service dining in addition to take-out and delivery service. Please visit www.galleriamall-fl.com/current-updates-due-to-covid-19 for additional details.

CES: ProCESs

VIRTUAL OPENING Party/Art Talk with Ces & Special Guests: April 18th at 5pm

RSVP: RSVP@museumofgraffiti.com to receive ZOOM link

MEDIA INFO & IMAGES: cece@feinbergpr.com

Mandated, statewide shelter-in measures have forced the Museum of Graffiti to shutter their doors, but the museum is maintaining a robust online presence ranging from daily art talks on IG live to downloadable graffiti coloring books.

The Museum of Graffiti’s opening for The ProCESs, featuring new paintings and drawings by famed NYC style master CES will be live-streamed on Saturday, April 18, 2020 at 5pm via ZOOM.

Visitors will receive an interactive tour through the exhibition while listening to a discussion of the work by CES and museum co-founder Alan Ket. Guests will be able to submit questions in real time and will also be the first to receive links to purchase newly released limited edition works. CES will be joined by a few surprise guests, famous friends, and collaborators. The live-stream opening party will conclude with a DJ set. To receive the ZOOM link, RSVP to RSVP@museumofgraffiti.com

“Although it’s important that we all make sacrifices right now, sheltering-in does not mean we have to give up on cultural offerings and unique experiences,” said Allison Freidin, co-founder of Museum of Graffiti. “Our hope is that our virtual art talks and exhibition openings bring joy and stimulation into people’s homes. I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t crack a smile when they see CES’ clever polymorphic drawings.”

ProCESs, curated by Carlos Mare, will present a variety of the artist’s small-scale marker illustrations showcasing his fine art talent, and the large-format spray paint works on canvas that he is well known for.

Inspired by ordinary objects in the world around him, whether a landscape, still life or a grilled cheese sandwich, CES has delivered a portfolio of unique drawings with a variety of both overt and whimsical illustrations that show how adept he is as a draftsman with traditional mediums, pencil and markers. His namesake signature or “tag” is revealed within each image as a nod to his graffiti roots. Whether CES is spelled out in a drawing of couch cushions or sliced Wonder Bread, each piece highlights the artist’s imagination and sense of humor.

CES’ canvas works showcase what he is acclaimed for – “Wild Style” lettering. He is instrumental in furthering a style of jagged, aggressive and hard edge letters as opposed to the rounded or bubble style of classic graffiti lettering. His letter and design innovations have influenced an entire generation of new artists in the US and throughout the world.

Born in the Bronx in the 1970s, Robert Provenzano, professionally known as CES, began his career in the early 80s. Influenced by the first wave of original NYC street artists who created vast works of graffiti on subway trains and walls, he was instrumental in developing the streamlined and aerodynamic “Wild Style” alphabetic reconfiguration in contemporary graffiti that is seen today. CES has a reputation for fine details in his artwork whether it’s his name or in the thematic murals he executes, this translation from paper to canvas, to the streets is what makes him such an exceptional artist.

CES has collaborated with brands like Puma, T-Mobile, The Palms Casino Hotel in Las Vegas, Seamless/ GrubHub, Nickelodeon, Vans, Marriott Bonvoy, and Turner Broadcasting. His work has been featured in The New York Times, The Source, Mass Appeal, Complex, Juxtapoz and TimeOut New York. Currently, he exhibits his work globally and is an active mural painter who was recently commissioned to paint an inaugural mural for the newly opened Museum of Graffiti in Wynwood Miami. He also premiered a solo exhibition of his unique collection of WU-TANG CLAN logo inspired drawings for the Showtime/Mass Appeal WU-TANG CLAN: of Mics and Men documentary.

The Museum of Graffiti is excited to present an artist who has a career that has been so influential and inspiring to so many around the globe. To celebrate the exhibition the Museum is hosting a special special online event:

Saturday, April 18
5:00pm: Virtual Opening of ProCESs, featuring a discussion of the work by CES and Alan Ket
5:30pm: Q & A

Blue Martini Fort Lauderdale will host its 11th annual Golf Invitational to benefit A Prom to Remember on Monday, March 23, from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., at Fort Lauderdale Country Club, the oldest private country club in Broward County. A Prom to Remember is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide the ultimate prom experience for teens who have been affected by cancer, at no-cost to their families.

Funds from this tournament will help to create this year’s prom on May 8 at the Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale. Over 200 teens will experience an unforgettable night with Miami Dolphin players, Miami Heat and Miami Hurricane cheerleaders/dancers along with local celebrities, DJs and more.

The tournament format consists of registration and lunch at 11 a.m. with a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start for a four-person scramble. A silent auction with luxury items awards ceremony and dinner will be held at 6 p.m. This will be the first charitable tournament to be held on Fort Lauderdale Country Club’s newly renovated North Course.

The North Course project, overseen by Kipp Schulties, principal architect of Kipp Schulties Golf Design (KSGD), underwent an extensive renovation including replacement of the greens and the provision of tees between 4,800 yards and 7,100 yards, making the course more enjoyable for both men and women of all abilities. The upgrades created an elevated level of excitement for members adding to the facility’s 18-Hole, Par 72 South Course which was built in 1926, remodeled twice and is often home to many corporate and non-profit events, annually.

In the Broward County area, which has numerous golf courses, Fort Lauderdale Country Club is a select private club that offers 36-holes of manicured championship golf in a forested park-like setting. Visually, the Club is truly a unique oasis as fairways are lined with stately native trees and colorful beds of flowers, as opposed to houses.

The Blue Martini Golf Invitational at Fort Lauderdale Country Club is also sponsored by Cheney Brothers, Daoud’s Fine Jewelry, WSVN and Ultimate Software.

The golf fee to participate in the 11th Annual Blue Martini is $400 per person or $1,600 for a Corporate Sponsorship foursome which includes a tee or a green sign and company recognition. Fees includes lunch, greens fees and golf cart, a golfer’s gift bag, day-of-event contests, on-course beverages and the awards dinner and ceremony. Golf club rentals are available for an additional fee. Registration is required by visiting http://bit.ly/APTRGolfTourney2020 or by calling 877-385-7766.

Wayne Huizenga, Chris Evert and Jimmy Evert, The Sun-Sentinel, Winterfest and Susan and Buddy Lochrie.

The Denison’s company, Broward Marine, and its workforce, were largely responsible for much of the marine industry that developed over the course of their 50 years of yacht construction that started on the south fork of the New River in Fort Lauderdale. In 1948, on their honeymoon, Frank and Gertrude Denison decided to buy a boat yard on the New River and shortly, thereafter, became the largest employer in Broward County, as well as the largest defense contractor in Florida. The contracts they secured for the construction of US Navy minesweepers during this time period led to the construction of large motor yachts. The Denison’s yachting business, launched in the early 1950s with the construction of the largest yacht built in the US, post WWII, the ALISA V, eventually led them to become most prolific large yacht builder in the world in 1993. The first of only two yacht builders in the US to have received this recognition.

The Marine Industries Association of South Florida (MIASF) is the largest marine trade organization in the Southeast United States dedicated to promoting, protecting, and growing the 111,000 middle class jobs in Broward County and 142,000 jobs regionally in marine businesses promoting boating lifestyles from family cruising and fishing to yachts and the goods and services that sustain them, driving the economic output to $8.9 billion in Broward County and $12 billion regionally. Created in 1961, the nonprofit trade group is focused on the sound growth of the marine industry in the South Florida Region to benefit its members, their customers, communities and the environment. The Association has over 500 members in Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach Counties and is the owner of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Through the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, advocacy efforts, programs and services of MIASF have combined to raise the professionalism of the industry and awareness of its impact and contributions by the public, elected, and regulatory officials at the local, state, and federal levels. Members have fostered a reputation for the region to be known as the goods and service center of the world for the yachting and marine community.

This year’s event will also celebrate the city’s 109th birthday with cocktails, food stations and entertainment.

Tickets for this year’s 25th anniversary History Makers fundraiser are $100 (online service charges not included) and can be purchased online at http://bit.ly/HFLHistoryMakers2020 or via email at info@flhc.org. Tickets are limited.

SWARM, the leading Miami-based event agency known for shaping South Florida’s cultural landscape through its proprietary events including everything from culinary to craft beer, is bringing the “ART” back into Wynwood Art Walk. On Saturday, January 11, 2020, Creative Director, Victor Bernadez, also known as (AKA) GOSA, is partnering with EFFEN Vodka to bring back the “Different by Design” hosted at The Wynwood Marketplace every second Saturday of the month starting with live painting at 5pm. Wynwood Art Walk starts at 12:00 p.m. and goes until 3:00 a.m.

SWARM, initially known by its initiation of the Wynwood Art Walk Block party, has taken a new approach to the arts district’s monthly event by having its own Creative Director, Victor Bernadez at the forefront of its new project – putting the ART back in The Wynwood Art Walk Block Party. With a unique talent that has been scouted and appreciated by both national and international fans, recently scouted fans as far as Belgium, Bernardez looks to bring fresh excitement and innovation back into the Wynwood art scene. The melting pot of creativity, with a reach unparalleled.

“As an artist I found myself wondering what happened to the art at ART Walk. With so much talent surrounding each day right outside our front door, I wanted to take on this project and partner with one of our top brands to highlight what our community has to offer. In Wynwood, every street displays different and ever-changing art. It’s my mission to make to create a space with a prestigious name where artists will want to be featured. I want to mentor each one into believing their work could be displayed in those bright lights.” says Victor Bernardez, Creative Director of SWARM.

EFFEN Vodka is the monthly sponsor of “Different by Design” which is set to feature specially curated artists that differ month-to-month over the course of the upcoming 12 months. These artist’s will be hand-picked by GOSA monthly from the vast selection within the community to reignite the fuel that once lit the Wynwood area and will allow for the rebirth of the arts district’s reputation. The “Different by Design” showcase featuring artists live painting will be located at The Wynwood Marketplace, will include events such as: Drink & Draw – where attendees can buy a drink and tap into their inner Picasso with a postcard copy of the artists’ live painting to be filled by one’s own imagination. With a 4×6 easel ready to set the tone for a showstopper, bystanders will experience the thrill of watching each artist paint live. The monthly event also includes an additional artist pavilion with multiple artists simultaneously painting live, presenting the perfect photo op for any Wynwood Art Walk attendee.

After years of establishing a name for itself, Wynwood has attracted quite the musical talent to perform at its various lounges, bars and nightclubs. Setting a new tone, thedeck hosts live bands, global performers and now will be featuring curated artists every 2nd Saturday of the month for Wynwood Art Walk Block Party to paint live. Starting at 12:00pm Wynwood goers can expect to see local up and comers show live previews of their raw talent, enjoy some Instagram-approved eats, and an ambiance the whole family can enjoy.

Museum of Art and Design at MDC presents Black Power Naps/Siestas Negras, an immersive, multi-sensory installation offering rest as a form of reparations. Created by artists Navild Acosta and Fannie Sosa, the installation invites visitors to lounge on a variety of embellished beds, replete with gauzy canopies, serene lighting, therapeutic sound vibrations, and other restorative props. On Thursday, December 5, artists Navild Acosta and Fannie Sosa will activate the installation with a Platonic Play Party Workshop, a playful event incorporating movement, sound, and discussion.
Black Power Naps/Siestas Negras is part of Where the Oceans Meet, an exhibition of modern and contemporary art that resonates with the pioneering thought of two Caribbean writers, Lydia Cabrera and Édouard Glissant. The international group of 40 artists and collectives in the exhibition considers notions of shifting and porous borders—geographic, national, cultural, social, racial, ethnic, and linguistic—and how crossing borders has shaped our world. Where the Oceans Meet and Black Power Naps/Siestas Negras will be on view through January 12, 2020.
Free parking for this event is available at the MDC parking garage, located at 500 NE 2nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33132.

Reflection of The First Ever Public Showing from the NASA Original Photo Archive by Continuum and Rudolf Budja Gallery on 10/24/19

Link to Instagram Videos

The exclusive exhibit celebrates the 50-Year Anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing with a global debut of forty never-before-seen photos from the historic missions between 1955 and 1994. Among the exhibition is the first and original photograph developed of the Neil Armstrong Footprint on the Moon. A private collector in Miami Beach has acquired the most complete vintage photo collection of original prints developed from the NASA lunar missions.

The month-long exhibition, entitled “Space-Time Continuum,” will be held at the iconic Continuum residences in Miami Beach, from October 24 to November 24. The exclusive exhibit is curated by one of the most private art collectors, Rudolf Budja, based in Miami Beach. The forty photographs have been selected from the complete NASA photo collection of 8,000 pictures acquired by Budja himself, that is now part of his personal archive at Rudolf Budja Gallery in Miami Beach. The complete collection obtained by Budja remains under copyright by NASA.

Each photograph in the collection includes the original typed description of the image by NASA on the back, the date the photograph was taken, the respective mission, together with a stamp of authenticity given by NASA administration. Thousands of photos that were not framed by NASA over the decades are under lock-and-key at Rudolf Budja Gallery, and contained within several dozen binders that were used by NASA to preserve the integrity of each image.

The “Space-Time Continuum” exhibition will be shown from October 24th to November 24th at the Continuum, located at 50 South Pointe Drive in Miami Beach, Florida. Viewing appointments may be made through Rudolf Budja Gallery by calling 786.556.6685 or by emailing Budja@me.com.

People watching is our favorite past-time and Miami is paradise for people watching. We will grab a drink, sit back and watch the parade of interesting characters go by at a couple of the BEST “watch spots” in Wynwood. We like to people watch in Wynwood because of the eclectic mix of creatives, tourists, locals, strangers kissing, and drunk dancers. We will wander around to 2 spots including an adult playground with retro games from our childhood, indoor and outdoor bars, food, and dope music selections. If you have an affinity for the 90’s flavor, this is for you. The DJ mixes it up touching all genres, something for everyone.

People watching is relaxing, inspiring, and fun. We will observe people and their interactions, picking up on idiosyncrasies to try to guess their stories. We people watch ethically without degrading the subjects.

Flight Into Egypt: Rare, Reformation-Era Stained Glass Exhibition

Two rare, pre-17th century, stained-glass panels depicting the Holy Family’s Flight Into Egypt are on permanent display at the Deering Estate beginning October 19th. The historic significance of these pieces cannot be overstated, as very few stained glass representations of religious art from this period have survived centuries marked by the ravages of war, political upheavals and natural deterioration. Of the stained-glass panels from that era that have survived, there are only 14 other pieces on public display in Florida. Admission to the 450-acre estate is $15 for adults; $7 for children (ages 4-14); Military and seniors receive a $2 discount on Tuesdays, and Deering Estate Foundation members admitted free.
