Each year, in celebration of Art Basel Miami Beach, The Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum at Florida International University hosts Breakfast in the Park. This event draws hundreds of art enthusiasts, patrons, collectors, gallery owners and artists from around the world, many of whom are visiting Miami for Art Basel. Each year a noted sculptor is invited to speak. Guests enjoy a complimentary outdoor breakfast, informal lecture and guided tours of The Sculpture Park as well as the exhibitions in The Frost Art Museum.

This year’s speaker, Daniel Arsham is a contemporary American artist whose art blurs the lines between art, architecture and performance. He explores issues of natural versus manufactured or intention versus happenstance.

In 2003 Arsham graduated from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science in NYC and received the Gelman Trust Fellowship Award. Arsham’s work has always played with notions of architecture. His sculptures and installations make architecture do things that it is not supposed to do. It wrinkles and ripples, and appears to blow like a curtain, it confounds our notions of how architecture is made and used.

In 2008, Daniel Arsham and Alex Mustonen established Snarkitecture, a Brooklyn based art and design studio that creates everything from functional objects to installation to stage design. It is a collaborative practice that aims to make architecture perform the unexpected, focusing on the investigation of structure, material and program and how these elements can be manipulated to serve new and imaginative purposes. Snarkitecture has received many high profile commissions including the baseball stadium in Miami, Storefront in NYC and Design Miami 2012.

Arsham’s work has been shown at PS1 in New York, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Miami, the MCA Chicago, Athens Biennial in Greece, The New Museum in New York, Mills College Art Museum in Oakland, California and Carré d’Art de Nîmes, France among others. Daniel Arsham’s artistic practice includes commissioned public art, performance and architectural projects including several high profile collaborations with choreographer Merce Cunningham, Producer Pharrell Williams, Dior Homme, Jonah Bokaer and Designer Hedi Slimane.

Daniel Arsham was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1980, was raised in Miami and currently lives and works in New York City.

Emerge Miami’s 100th Bike Ride: Celebrate Diversity Miami, will be rolling through local communities on Saturday, Oct. 11, 2014, giving people a unique opportunity to learn more about several of our culturally diverse neighborhoods, and to connect with fellow greater Miami residents in a fun and interactive way.

More than 100 cyclists are expected to attend this family-friendly event that will be kicking off Celebrate Diversity Miami, a new large-scale community engagement initiative that aims to promote a deepened sense of connectivity between the culturally and ethnically diverse communities of greater Miami. The group, departing from Government Center in downtown Miami, will visit Overtown, Liberty City, and Little Haiti before concluding with a celebratory picnic at the beautiful, waterfront Museum Park, which recently opened up to the public this summer.

Along the way, riders will first stop by Overtown’s Dorsey Park, where URGENT, Inc. has been working on several mural projects documenting the rich history of that community. The second stop is at the MCI KaBoom Playground in Liberty City, where the Miami Children’s Initiative has been taking a block-by-block approach to breaking the cycle of poverty by investing in the potential of every child. Then riders will make a third stop in Little Haiti to experience the Little Haiti Cultural Center’s recently opened Caribbean Marketplace, an entertainment venue for showcasing arts & crafts, culture, and food. Finally, everyone will make their way over to Museum Park, and come together to celebrate Emerge Miami’s 100th ride milestone.

Emerge Miami and Celebrate Diversity Miami are proud to have the enthusiastic support of the Urban Renewal Greater Enhancement National Team (URGENT), Inc., Miami Children’s Initiative (MCI), and Little Haiti Cultural Center.
