Fridge Art Fair Returns to Little Havana for Art Basel Miami Week
Fridge Art Fair is pleased to announce that its second Miami edition will take place at the 3rd Street Garage Artspace, 300 SW 12th Avenue, Miami with additional presentations at a legendary Little Havana location, Ball & Chain ( December 4 – 9, 2014, thanks to major sponsorship by the Barlington Group and returning media sponsor Arte Fuse. Once again, Founding Director Eric Ginsburg, a noted painter in his own right (mainly for his soulful portraits of dogs), will lead the Fridge team.

“People should not be afraid to go and see art, and it should not cost a fortune,’ said Ginsburg. “I want people to be happy, we want everyone from all walks of life to come to this fair and say, ‘that was really cool!’” In that spirit he has subtitled this edition “De Staatliches Bauhaus Rijpe Mango Editie,” explaining:
“In Hinduism, Lord Ganesha holds a perfectly ripe mango as a symbol of the potential for perfection. The mango is a tropical icon, a fruit of love. Pure, but sexy…like Miami!”

Cara Hunter Viera of Fridge will produce the Fair and NYC based curator, writer and dealer Linda DiGusta, co-director of Fridge 2014 in New York, stays on the team as curatorial consultant.

Fridge Art Fair was born on New York’s Lower East Side in May 2013, making it’s debut – under the tagline “Can you fit into the Fridge?” — at Kazuko Miyamoto’s small but storied storefront, Gallery OneTwentyEight. The inaugural Miami show was presented at the somewhat more spacious Pax, on Calle Ocho. On March 31st 2014, Fridge was displaced from its expanded Lower East Side venue by the Dept. of Buildings closure of the historic and beloved Angel Orensanz Center, but was able to rebound and open as planned on May 8 and present an innovative, successful fair (including large-scale installations, a video lounge curated by Jeanne Wilkinson, and a Ferrari, presented by Dorian Grey Gallery, painted by John “Crash” Matos) at a 7,000 sf waterfront venue in Long Island City thanks to major sponsorship from Plaxall. With a loyal following of presenting galleries, organizations and artists, Fridge is growing while retaining its character as an intimate, accessible and enjoyable event.

Barlington Group was founded by Bill Fuller and Martin Pinilla II, in Miami Florida in June 2004, as an urban development company committed to revitalizing neighborhoods within Miami’s urban core. Since inception, Barlington Group has acquired, developed, and managed commercial projects with a value exceeding $50 million. Projects have focused on asset repositioning, ranging from multi-family, retail, office, and mixed use buildings. The company currently operates 100 plus multi-family units and more than 400,000 sqft of retail and office space in 13 retail and mixed-use centers. The company is also invested in retail, entertainment, and hospitality ventures. The core mission of the company is to have fun creating unique places to live, work, and play.

Arte Fuse is a contemporary online art magazine featuring news, openings, events, galleries, studio visits and art reviews. Visiting as many shows and artist’s studios as possible, the publication offers readers a curated perspective of the art scene with special focus on New York. The magazine was founded by Jamie Martinez, Publisher and CEO, in 2008.

Miami DWNTWN Art Days 9/19/14-9/21/14

Miami DWNTWN Art Days
September 19-21, All Day
dwntwnartdays Downtown Miami

Art Days is designed to bring together and promote the cultural community, in addition to facilitating and incentivizing art exhibitions and other cultural activities. In its third year, Art Days, supported by the Miami Downtown Development Authority (DDA), continues to provide free inspiring art activities across the Downtown cultural landscape. Working in partnership with a variety of arts and culture institutions, organizations and artists, Art Days is a three-day cultural exploration that incorporates countless free events and exhibitions for the community to experience and enjoy. Art Days offers something for everyone from family activities, panel discussions, international exhibitions, bike tours, walking tours and so much more!

Art Days is comprised of three components:
The Hub
located at MCAD, 100 NE 1st Ave, Miami, FL 33132
The “hub” is the epicenter for information on Art Days. In 2013 over 130 events took place around Downtown Miami, so it’s worthwhile to take a moment and set an itinerary to make the most out of the weekend!
The hub is the place to…
…find someone to help you navigate through the vast amount of things to do.
…start most walking and bike tours.
…be creative and paint your own unique t-shirt.
…hang out and connect with your friends on social media.
…find people to welcome you to Downtown Miami.

The Fringe
The “Fringe” is a set of curated activations of Downtown Miami in the form of visual and performance art projects. The visual art projects are commissioned, site-specific public art installations, curated by a specialist contemporary art curator Amanda Sanfilippo, and located within a one-mile radius around the Hub for easy walkability. This year’s Fringe has been initiated in partnership with Miami Dade County’s Art in Public Places.

The Events
Throughout the three day weekend, over 60 different art organizations, culture organizations, non-profits and artists activate their spaces with exhibitions, performances, cocktails meet and greet, art talks, panels and more. New for 2014 is an increased family friendly programming and children activities to accommodate the growing number of families living in Downtown.
Realizing the lack of performing arts in last year’s mix of events, the Miami DDA, in collaboration with the Olympia Theatre, is debuting a series of performance pieces in public areas and venues all around Downtown
As a guideline, here is a schedule for the weekend:
Thursday: Media/VIP Preview of the Fringe and Art Days
Friday: School tours/ Exhibitions openings/ post -work cocktail activities
Saturday: Museum day; art tours and exhibitions
Sunday: Cultural activities/bike tours
