Music will be provided by DJ Andie Sweetswirl and photography by Peter Vahan. Speakers include:

- Jill C. Weisberg // Creative Director of Schrift & Farbe with over 12 years of industry experience designing print and digital media.

Photographs of Miami Boheme World Premiere at The Stage on 3/19/14

Miami Boheme World Premiere at The Stage on Wednesday, March 19, 2014.  

“Miami Boheme,” directed by Joe Cardona and Ralf Gonzalez, is a documentary about Miami’s original Latin-fusion bands and the cutting-edge scene surrounding them. The film takes you to the clubs, where the beats of bands such as Spam Allstars, Locos Por Juana, Suénalo, PALO!, Elastic Bond and Afrobeta get you dancing.

The film is a bilingual mashup of rhythms and cultures. It is a one-hour jam session like no other: a fusion of sights, sounds and ideas that meld together to form the fabric of America’s most dynamic city, Miami.

“Through the Lens” – 60th Anniversary Alumni Artist Series: Exhibit 3

Carl Juste, ACND alumnus ’81, will present a retrospective of his work documenting the course of his 25 year career as photojournalist for the Miami Herald and past exhibits at ACND including: “Cachao” 2007; “Havana & Haiti” 2008; and “Invictus: Haiti Unconquered.”

Under threat of persecution, Haitian-born Carl Phillipe Juste (ACND alumnus 1981), fled with his family from Haiti in 1965. Settling in Miami’s Haitian community, Juste flourished academically and won a scholarship to the University of Miami. Although he intended to be an engineer, he could not ignore the photographic inner voice that had spoken to him since childhood. Responding to a clear relationship he shared with the visual world, Juste vigorously pursued photojournalism and since 1991, has served his community through his work at the Miami Herald. He has received numerous awards for his work from Picture of the Year, Pulitzer Prize, Society for News Design, Best of Photojournalism, and the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award. Juste is founder of both the IPC Visual Lab and Iris Photo Collective.

Juste has exhibited his own work and of his students from IPC Visual Lab many times at the ACND Gallery, and has exhibited at both solo and group shows at the Bernice Steinbaum Gallery, Little Haiti Cultural Center, and other galleries throughout South Florida.

Eats & Beats was the answer to the out of control prices and ostentatiousness that the Sobe Wine and Food Festival has become. The event was created to give locals a place to eat great food and hear awesome music for an affordable and reasonable price. Congratulations on a kickass party Eats and Beats, see you next year.
