Introducing Blue Starlite Mini Urban Drive-In’s “Blue Starlite By The Bay” at Kennedy Park in the Coconut Grove

This September, Blue Starlite Mini Urban Drive-In is setting up its big screen at a new venue, and one with plenty of outdoor intrigue. Situated in the Coconut Grove area, the drive-in’s “Blue Starlite By The Bay” welcomes movie fans to enjoy films on Bayshore Drive in between Miami’s striking Kennedy and Peacock Parks, and for the very first time on the weekends. Blue’s new home is the perfect place for patrons to relax and get their outdoor film fix on while breathing in fresh, waterfront air and reveling in the natural beauty of the surrounding parks.

“Blue Starlite By The Bay” is a collaboration made possible by The City of Miami Parks and Recreation with the help of the Commissioner of Miami, Marc Sarnoff. Blue’s new entertainment escape sits just a few blocks down from Scotty’s Landing and Monty’s Raw Bar and Restaurant—two of Miami’s most well known places for drinks and eats on the water. The car park at this location can host up to 30 vehicles a night, featuring a grassy area near the front of the screen for bikers and walk-in guests. Patrons who wish to secure their space early can do so and enjoy an outing in the park, time on the playground or a walk along the bay before settling into their cars for an evening of film screening fun.

Throughout the first month of fall, Blue Starlite will screen a mix of romance and adventure-packed family films—such as Princess Bride, The Goonies, Grease (the sing along), Alice In Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz and Jaws. In the spirit of Blue Starlite’s cinematic experimentation, the Blue will offer alternative rock’n roll listening options for The Wizard of Oz and Alice In Wonderland with its popular late night Psychedelic Cinema Series. Film lovers can opt to enjoy Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon album with The Wizard of Oz or choose to listen to the The Wall soundtrack as they view Alice In Wonderland.

As September comes to a close and Halloween season approaches, Blue Starlite will gear up for its biggest month of the year: October. Fans of the drive-in are encouraged to check the website for more details on upcoming events and screenings at www.miamiurbandrivein.com.

17th Annual Gifford Lane Art Stroll in Coconut Grove on Sunday, March 1, 2015. This was our first time and loved it, so much fun, amazing art, great community and wonderful music.  I can’t wait until next year.

“The Gifford Lane Art Stroll was started 17 years ago by a half-dozen artists who lived along this block.  Most of them have now moved away but a hearty band of some thirty neighbors have made the little event a Coconut Grove tradition. They meet on weekends for months to hold planning pot-luck supper gatherings to map each year coming up.”

Seventeenth Annual Gifford Lane Art Stroll 3/1/15

Seventeenth Annual Gifford Lane Art Stroll

World’s Smallest Arts Festival Rocks On

Each year the artists gather here beneath the trees. Every year, people flock here for a good time and to grab up the art. And unlike almost any other event in Florida, each year at the end of the day, they give away all the money. They’ve got great karma.

Everything takes place on Gifford Lane along one residential block near the Kirk Munroe tennis courts, between Oak and Day Avenues (3200 block) in Coconut Grove. There will be no vehicular traffic permitted along the lane during the event.

The event features work by seventy artists positioned along the lane with artwork displayed on fences, in front yards, on clotheslines, in trees and on ladders. Some of the finest artists in the region will be in attendance. Residents often describe the Gifford Lane Art Stroll as the “Grove the way the Grove once was.” Neighbor Nathan Kurland, a central organizer of the event for the past eight years, says, “As far as I can tell, the Gifford Lane Art Stroll is Coconut Grove.”

“The thing is,” says Trina Collins, a painter and one of the founders of the Stroll who lives on the block, “at lots of arts festivals, artists are primarily interested in just having their work seen. But at the Gifford Lane Art Stroll, artists come to sell. The price is right. The quality’s good. You see tons of people going up the lane with a new treasure tucked under their arm.”

It is a freewheeling art marketplace. Sculpture, portraits, seascapes, landscapes, jewelry, tile mosaics, large abstract paintings, photography, mixed media, found art objects, and several art forms that as yet have no names—it is all here and readily available.

Each year artists apply to the Stroll to be included and each year there is a waiting list. A request also goes out to artists for submissions to be considered for the annual poster. The entire planning committee of 30 residents selects the winner. This year’s honor goes to multi-award winning artist Eileen Seitz, a NYC-born, long-time Groveite. Eileen’s artwork is seen internationally and is visible throughout the Grove—from her hand-painted Ambassador kiosks in the Village Center to her collaborative contribution to the Children’s Mosaic of glittering underwater tilework on the side of the U.S. Post Office here.

The live music at the Stroll provides the perfect soundtrack for the afternoon—when it is loud, people dance in the street; and when it sways gently, people chat and stroll the lane. It is nonstop good times. This year, featured performers appearing for their sixth year at the Stroll will be regional favorites, the high energy folk rock tunesmiths Solar Dogs. Band members are Eric Wagner, Zip Robertson, Bill Kunz, and Robert Grabowski. Solar Dogs strikes the perfect tone of sweetness and good vibrations that the Stroll crowd loves. Who could resist dancing when these lads light it up?

Coconut Grove music legend Bobby Ingram will be performing his wonderful solo vocals and guitar. Bobby has performed with David Crosby, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Jimmy Buffet, Fred Neil, Gail Garnet and many others. We are truly honored to have Bobby back performing at the Stroll. Also featured this year will be popular Grove musician Ronnie Brooks in his first Stroll appearance.

Each and every year, the Gifford Lane Art Stroll gives away all of its profits to Coconut Grove charities. A percentage of every piece of art sold, and all of the proceeds from contributions for the now-famous (written about in The New York Times, Miami Herald, and The Miami New Times) cucumber punch, not to mention substantial funds from the sale of delicious food selections goes directly to charity. Over the last sixteen years, the Stroll has donated all of their money– more than $40,000– to two Grove charities, the St. Stephen’s AIDS Ministry and the St. Alban’s Child Enrichment Center in the Grove Village West.

The true heart and soul of the Gifford Lane Art Stroll are some thirty neighbors who each year meet over potluck dinners to undertake all of the many small details that make each year a success. Everyone is a volunteer, including Founding Director Trina Collins. This year, Barbara Tejada, an oil painter and herself director of the Grove House Artists, is the Art Stroll Facilitator responsible for coordinating all of the details of the event with Trina Collins and Velvet Rothe, the Stroll’s government relations coordinator.

Peggy Quattro, a marketing professional who volunteers with the Stroll, says there are many art forms included in the Gifford Lane Art Stroll, but one of the most important is “the art of commun-ity.” Participating artist, Uta, says, “I can’t think of a sweeter party that fuses art, music and joy.” Jugglers and a bounce house are always big draws for families with children.

This year, for the first time, will feature free monitored bike valet parking sponsored by Bike Coconut Grove on the swale at the intersection of Gifford Lane and Oak Avenue. Simply leave your bike with the bike valet, take a numbered ticket (the other half of the ticket is attached to your bike), and enjoy the Stroll knowing your bike is being watched in a secure setting.

The 17th Annual Gifford Lane Art Stroll will delight those in attendance on Sunday, March 1st, from 12 until 5:00 p.m. in Coconut Grove under the beautiful trees among the welcoming artists along sweet Gifford Lane.

Photographs of St. Stephen’s Art Show on 2/15/15

St. Stephen’s Art Show on Sunday, February 15, 2015.

About St. Stephen’s Art Show:  “Art is in the Heart – What began as a hot dog and refreshment stand on St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church property during the weekend of the Coconut Grove Arts Festival has blossomed into a top ranked outdoor arts and fine crafts festival in its own right. Most recently ranked 8th in the country in Sunshine Artist Magazine’s “Best 200 Fine Art Shows”, the St. Stephen’s Art & Craft Show plays an important role in the South Florida Art Scene that takes place in Coconut Grove over all three days of Presidents’ Day Weekend.

The 2014 Show, held annually on Presidents’ Day Weekend, takes place Saturday, February 15th through Monday, February 17th, 2014 9:30 am to 6:00 pm. Visitors will enjoy the artwork of over 160 renowned fine artists and craft people, an international food court, children’s activity area, an authentic English tea room and musical entertainment, all on the shady campus of St. Stephen’s in the heart of Coconut Grove.

The Art Show is St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church’s longest standing cultural outreach event. Hundreds of volunteers from the greater Miami community help make the event a success. Beverage sales proceeds have allowed the Art Show to contribute more than $55,000 to the St. Stephen’s AIDS Ministry.

The Art Show plays an important role in helping St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church achieve its vision of becoming “The Heart of the Grove” by offering a variety of cultural, spiritual, entertainment and public service programming to the community. St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church invites all people to join in a life of worship, mercy, justice, learning and service.”

Coconut Grove Art Festival on Sunday, February 15, 2105.

“Produced by the Coconut Grove Arts and Historical Association, Inc., a non-profit community organization under the direction of a board of directors and full-time staff, the Coconut Grove Arts Festival® showcases the works of 360 internationally recognized artists who are selected from nearly 1,300 applicants. Jurors evaluate the artist’s work and displays to select participants in such categories as mixed media, painting, photography, digital art, printmaking & drawing, watercolor, claywork, glass, fiber, jewelry & metalwork, sculpture and wood. Proceeds help fund year-round arts programs, which create a positive impact on our community and touch the lives of many throughout the year. Recent initiatives include the “New & Emerging Artists” category, which allows artists ages 18-29 to not only display their work for the very first time at an outdoor fine arts festival, but also partake in a hands-on Arts Symposium and gain access to a carefully-matched Experienced Festival Artist in their genre.”

What would a festival be without some friendly competition?! Grillin’ in the Grove has lined up two contests.
