Photographs of WhereBy Us: Delightful Commutes at Miami Light Project on 4/8/14

WhereBy Us: Delightful Commutes at Miami Light Project on Tuesday, April 8, 2014. We got to hear from some fellow locals about their commute experiences, hear two experts share examples from other cities, and worked together in small groups to create innovative ideas for making our commutes more awesome and enjoyable.  They are putting $3,000 on the table to make the best ideas happen (thanks to Miami Foundation and Knight Foundation).

Amy Gross uses everyday materials such as yarn, thread, beads and wire to create objects that mimic the natural world but remain wholly artificial. Her fiber and mixed media sculptures, nicknamed biotopes, reflect on the inevitability of change, attempting to counter inevitable vulnerability by stopping time. Her life forms are imitations of life. They, simply, do not die. Gross earned her BFA at The Cooper Union in New York City and worked as a surface designer, creating textiles, toys, and jewelry before before turning full time to fiber art. She lives and works in South Florida.

Photographs of Life Is Art presents Art/Work Connections #18: Instagram Tips with Anthony Jordon on 4/15/14

Life Is Art presents Art/Work Connections #18: Instagram Tips with Anthony Jordon at  Eleazar Delgado Studio on Tuesday, April 15, 2014.  Art/Work Connections is a monthly series of seminars presented by Life Is Art featuring business professionals speaking on a variety of topics vital to the success of working artists. This month, Anthony Jordon, professional photographer and social media expert, taught us all about Instagram, one of the fastest growing social media platforms.

Anthony is a Miami-based photographer specializing in engagement, destination wedding, event/social, and portrait photography. In 2013, Anthony organized two major international photography events in Miami; The Scott Kelby Worldwide photowalk, the first of its in Downtown Miami, and Help Portrait Miami, partnering with the Miami Rescue Mission. Anthony has been an online moderator for Cloak Inc.’s One 12 Haiti Solidarity Virtual March, as well as a guest speaker for Photovoice. Credits include Instagram Ambassador for Scope Miami 2012, Heineken Murals/Heineken Light Project Social Media Ambassador Miami and Washington, DC (2012-2013), photographer for Eleazar Delgado, JLPR, Red Bull, GLAAD, Absolut, and Muscle Milk just to name a few. Anthony’s work has also been published in the Miami and Broward-Palm Beach New Times, Miami Magazine, and he is a current contributor to Soul Of Miami.

Originally conceived at our home, Eleazar Delgado Studio has always been the artist’s creative space. The idea grew into a gathering place for our friends, mostly artists in their own rights, to showcase their current work and preview concepts. We made it official in 2010 when we opened a public space in Wynwood. Today in addition to being Eleazar’s personal art studio, we host local talents and leaders who need a professional environment to showcase, educate, and enrich the community at large.

About the Art/Work Connections Program: The Art/Work Connections program is a monthly series of business seminars held at galleries and art spaces around South Florida targeted at artists and those working in the arts. Everyone is welcome and can benefit from them. Business professionals are brought in to cover a wide variety of topics including health care, financial planning, contract negotiation, copyright law, portfolio development, social media, marketing and much more.

But the challenge is figuring out what you actually need to do in order to drive real results for your organization. This seminar covers the best practices and winning strategies for driving repeat actions and finding and keeping subscribers, increasing engagement and deliverability rates, writing good subject lines and content, getting readers to take action, and becoming a trusted source. You will learn how to stay top of mind to make it easy for your readers to share your message and act on your initiatives, and for you to measure results.
