Miami DWNTWN Art Days 9/19/14-9/21/14

Miami DWNTWN Art Days
September 19-21, All Day
dwntwnartdays Downtown Miami

Art Days is designed to bring together and promote the cultural community, in addition to facilitating and incentivizing art exhibitions and other cultural activities. In its third year, Art Days, supported by the Miami Downtown Development Authority (DDA), continues to provide free inspiring art activities across the Downtown cultural landscape. Working in partnership with a variety of arts and culture institutions, organizations and artists, Art Days is a three-day cultural exploration that incorporates countless free events and exhibitions for the community to experience and enjoy. Art Days offers something for everyone from family activities, panel discussions, international exhibitions, bike tours, walking tours and so much more!

Art Days is comprised of three components:
The Hub
located at MCAD, 100 NE 1st Ave, Miami, FL 33132
The “hub” is the epicenter for information on Art Days. In 2013 over 130 events took place around Downtown Miami, so it’s worthwhile to take a moment and set an itinerary to make the most out of the weekend!
The hub is the place to…
…find someone to help you navigate through the vast amount of things to do.
…start most walking and bike tours.
…be creative and paint your own unique t-shirt.
…hang out and connect with your friends on social media.
…find people to welcome you to Downtown Miami.

The Fringe
The “Fringe” is a set of curated activations of Downtown Miami in the form of visual and performance art projects. The visual art projects are commissioned, site-specific public art installations, curated by a specialist contemporary art curator Amanda Sanfilippo, and located within a one-mile radius around the Hub for easy walkability. This year’s Fringe has been initiated in partnership with Miami Dade County’s Art in Public Places.

The Events
Throughout the three day weekend, over 60 different art organizations, culture organizations, non-profits and artists activate their spaces with exhibitions, performances, cocktails meet and greet, art talks, panels and more. New for 2014 is an increased family friendly programming and children activities to accommodate the growing number of families living in Downtown.
Realizing the lack of performing arts in last year’s mix of events, the Miami DDA, in collaboration with the Olympia Theatre, is debuting a series of performance pieces in public areas and venues all around Downtown
As a guideline, here is a schedule for the weekend:
Thursday: Media/VIP Preview of the Fringe and Art Days
Friday: School tours/ Exhibitions openings/ post -work cocktail activities
Saturday: Museum day; art tours and exhibitions
Sunday: Cultural activities/bike tours

MANO Fine Art presents Last Look at Allegories of the Koi Moon 8/16/14

MANO Fine Art presents Last Look at Allegories of the Koi Moon

The Koi Moon is said to appear when the water is still and words are mere reflections. A blessing to some mystical and disconcerting to others the moon waxes and wanes as does fortune and the fickleness of man.

MANO Fine Art is proud to present a closing reception for Allegories of the Koi Moon, a collective exhibition featuring the work of Long Looi Lee, MANO and Marcy Grosso.

Long Looi Lee was well on his way to becoming an opera singer when he received a scholarship to the Pratt Institute in New York. More than forty years later, Lee continues to incorporate elements of his Asian heritage in his work. Painting koi is both nostalgic and relaxing for Marcy Grosso who recalls feeding the fish in her family’s koi pond flakes of oatmeal when fish food was no longer available in Cuba. MANO is passionate about incorporating unlikely materials in his art; ordinary jute and tree trunks are transformed into extraordinary works for Allegories of the Koi Moon.

MANO Fine Art Project Space is the working studio of Miami-based artist MANO and an exhibition and project space for art related events. MANO Fine Art is one of the founding members of the Bird Road Art Walk that is held on the third Saturday of each month.

Collectors and art lovers alike are invited to attend a preview this Thursday, for Ronnie Olabarrieta’s solo exhibition. Stay tuned for Cafeina’s Beats & Burlesque show beginning at 9:00 pm!

“I am an architect and visual artist. My preferable medium is acrylic and oil and I practice the style of abstract expressionism. Most of my work is done in action, although I also use studies and sketches to do my final expressions. Colors are very important in my expression’s maneuvers to create the volumes, balance and beauty in the compositions and to bring meaning to everything I do.” -Ronnie
