This one of a kind art show, created and produced by Pete Mason, will be held on the third day of Phish’s four night stand at Miami’s American Airlines Arena, only a 5 block walk from the Arsht Center.

The lineup announced for the PhanArt Poster and Pin Exhibition: Miami represents a wide array of artists from among the Phish art community. Longtime Phish artists Ryan Kerrigan, TRiPP, Isadora Bullock, Michael Boyer, StuPINdous Creations, Pompeii Prints and Fred Sutter are regular exhibitors at PhanArt shows and fans can expect to find a large portfolio from each artist of current and past art.

Pin makers and designers MYFE. Designs, Party Time Pins, Noah Phence, Pin me Down, Cactusbomb, Pinsanity Designs, and Ant Pharms Pins will feature their ever-popular pin series and designs, as well as other items made specifically for the Miami shows.

First time exhibitors to the PhanArt Poster and Pin Exhibition include Sweet Melis, Otto Art, Brooke Appelman, Brian Bojo’s Phifty-Two Weeks, Golden Road Gallery, Jampanties, Ebbleberry Designs, Super Rad Cape Co, Highly Concerned Enterprises, Brendan Nicolan and The Shakedown Shop. Each of these exhibitors brings something new to the show, be it posters, clothing, underwear, a year-long art project, children’s clothing and much more.

A musical performance from San Francisco-based pianist Holly Bowling will take place throughout the art show, with performances on the hour from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. 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. Check out Holly’s previous performances with Marco Benevento and at her own solo gig in San Francisco during this past year’s Bill Graham Run. For updates on the performance and more information please visit Holly’s Facebook page.

Non-profits benefitting from the PhanArt show include The Mockingbird Foundation, which has awarded grants for music education totaling more than $800,000 over the past 15 years. PhanArt has raised, through a book and website created to showcase the art made by Phish fans, over $18,000 for The Mockingbird Foundation since 2009.

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.
