As the traditional expo moves to a virtual format, shaking hands and handing out samples might be moot, but connecting is more important than ever. With our panel of four industry gurus, we’ll discuss how we’re adapting and optimizing as our already ever-changing industry does a complete 180.

Let’s meet the panel:
Mary Coppola, MBA, has nearly two decades of experience developing and supporting brands as a design and marketing professional. As the vice president of marketing & communications for the United Fresh Produce Association, Mary leads the association’s digital marketing team, responsible for developing resources that allow the industry to advance their own brand marketing strategies through the signature event BrandStorm™ as well as quarterly trends research, webinars and more. In collaboration with her association peers, United Fresh launched United Fresh LIVE!, the global fresh produce industry’s first virtual conference and trade show just nine week after making the decision to pivot from an in-person event.

As a strategic and creative leader, Vanessa Doll helps spearhead growth for CPG clients, big and small. She came to Freshmade by way of LPK in Cincinnati, where she spent 7 years as senior project manager on P&G brands, such as Always, Pampers, and Vicks. She also led client services for Coty Beauty, helping brands like Wella and Clairol and worked on Pringles, Kellogg’s, and Anheuser-Busch. Between her dual master’s degree in Writing Theory and Pedagogy from DePaul University and experiences as a sailboat racer and bar owner, Vanessa brings well-rounded intelligence and determination to everything she does.

Bethany Geris is the digital marketing manager for the United Fresh Produce Association and the virtual platform rockstar of United Fresh LIVE! – the global fresh produce industry’s first virtual conference and trade show. Bethany works to advance the association through her digital marketing expertise. This June, she was responsible for working with more than 200 exhibitors helping them make the technical transition from an in-person event to a virtual show, with much success! With just under 5 years at United Fresh, she has enshrined her status as the go-to digital ace.

Jordan Volpe is the VP of Marketing at OpenWater, a B2B software company helping organizations bring their virtual events to life. After starting off in sales at OpenWater, he was tasked with building out the demand generation and events marketing teams. His main focus now is OpenWater’s overall marketing strategy and partnerships.

About Let’s Make Lemonade:
The American Advertising Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale and the Palm Beaches launched Let’s Make Lemonade as a call to area businesses to pause, stop reacting and contact their agency partners to make a plan for recovery.

The initiative’s second objective is to better prepare our members and our industry to bounce back from recession by addressing skills and knowledge gaps in new or misunderstood areas of marketing.

Our NKF programs are all running strong, thanks to the continued support from our South Florida community.”

Participants and volunteers represent every aspect of kidney disease, creating a real sense of hope and encouragement, ultimately providing long-term support for Florida kidney patients and their families. With the annual walk going virtual this year, participants have more flexibility to safely complete the walk, whether they choose to take a walk around their own neighborhood or explore a local park on the day of the walk. Organizers encourage participants to take a selfie or video and share it on social media with the hashtag #KidneyWalkVirtual.

Participants are also encouraged to personalize their kidney walk page by documenting their kidney disease journey or sharing with the organization and community the reasons why they walk. Participants will be able to ask their personal networks to support the cause before the day of the walk.

Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale and The Consulate-General of Japan in Miami are proud to present Japanese Kaiju Toys and Contemporary Art, an online lecture that will premiere on NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale’s YouTube channel on Thursday, July 9 at 6:00 p.m. The lecture is free and open to the public and all those interested in viewing may register at www.nsuartmuseum.org/event.

Hosted by Professor James B. Levy, Professor at Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad College of Law and a longtime collector of Japanese kaiju toys, this virtual presentation will explore the history and cultural impact of the kaiju – an array of fictional giant monster-like characters that have transcended Japanese culture to become hugely popular among science fiction fans, artists, scholars, and folklore lovers around the globe – in toy form. The lecture will also delve into how these colorful collectibles have changed how many define art and how it is collected.

First depicted during the 1960s and ‘70s in Japanese television shows, these giant monsters were usually shown battling super-heroes trying to save cities from destruction. Their quick rise in popularity prompted Japanese companies to produce an array of soft vinyl monster toys based on their characters. Decades later, these kaiju collectibles were rediscovered by collectors including influential artists, musicians, designers and writers who were attracted by their fanciful, creative designs and wild, psychedelic colors, and are responsible for starting the urban vinyl collector movement, which has been embraced by artists like KAWS, FriendsWithYou, Kenny Scharf, Yoshimoto Nara and Takashi Murakami. Some of these artists are currently being featured in NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale’s Happy! exhibition, recently extended through August 30.

Conversations at MOCA: Carl Juste and Leonard Pitts
Wednesday, 07/08/2020-, 07:00 pm-

RSVP / Register
Cost: Free

Reaffirming its commitment to make contemporary art accessible, the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is pleased to feature two Miami Herald Pulitzer Prize winners – photojournalist Carl Juste and columnist Leonard Pitts, Jr. – as part of its free, virtual “Conversations at MOCA” series on July 8. The two will be discussing “I am a Man,” Juste’s newly installed public artwork on the MOCA Plaza. Donnamarie Baptiste will serve as moderator of the conversation.

In 2008, while working on a newspaper story with Pitts, Juste captured the image of Memphis sanitation worker Elmore Nickelberry and his son, Terence, with a placard that read, “I Am A Man.” Carried during the Memphis Sanitation Workers’ Strike in 1968, these signs became emblematic of the Black community’s struggles in the United States. Commenting on his portrait of the elder Nickelberry, Juste has said, “I just wanted to capture that dignity that was often deprived him.”

The panel will consist of the following:
• Carl Juste has been a photojournalist for the Miami Herald since 1991. Juste was born into a politically active family in Haiti. After being forced to leave their homeland in 1965 for political reasons, his family eventually settled in Miami’s Haitian community. In addition to photography work for the Miami Herald, Juste cofounded Iris PhotoCollective (IPC). IPC’s members are photojournalists of color who document people of color’s relationship to the world. In 2019, Juste opened the IPC ArtSpace in Little Haiti. He is currently producing a book and exhibit titled, “Havana, Haiti: Two Cultures, One Community,” which consists of photographs and text that explore the bonds between Cuba and Haiti.
• Leonard Pitts was born and raised in Southern California. He was awarded a degree in English from the University of Southern California at the age of 19, having entered school at 15 on a special honors program. Since 1995, he and his wife have lived in Bowie, Md., a suburb of Washington, D.C. Pitts’ work has made him an in-demand lecturer. He maintains a rigorous speaking schedule that has taken him to colleges, civic groups and professional associations all over the country. He has also taught at a number of institutions of higher learning, including Hampton University, Ohio University, the University of Maryland, and Virginia Commonwealth University. In the fall of 2011, he was a visiting professor at Princeton, teaching a course in writing about race.
• Donnamarie Baptiste will serve as moderator of the conversation. Baptiste is a producer, programmer and curator of art and culture who has worked with art fairs, galleries, artists, arts organizations and brands to produce exhibitions, site-responsive events, and experiences that connect audiences nationally and internationally.

In Between Exhibition, A BI-Level Solo Show, by Yochi Yakir-Avin 6/25/20-8/8/20

Sunday, 06/25/2020-08/08/2020, 11:00 am-05:00 pm
Website
Cost:

This comprehensive solo exhibition is made possible through a CIP Grant awarded to Yochi Yakir-Avin by The Broward County Cultural Division. Additional support is provided by the exhibition host venue, The Frank C. Ortis Art Gallery in Pembroke Pines, Florida. Due to safety restrictions brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, the bi-level solo show will be experienced through a 360 degree interactive tour accompanied by virtual programming. In the event that the Frank reopens to the public between June 25 and August 8, In Between will be accessible to the public in person as well. As complementary community offerings, a video tutorial workshop on Transfer techniques and a virtual musical performance will be offered online during the exhibition.
In Between is a retrospective presenting select works created by Yakir-Avin between 2015-2020. The exhibition reflects her technical education in Israel and Italy, and displays Yakir-Avin’s ability to communicate clearly through both figuration and abstraction. Her command of multiple media and techniques is demonstrated through oil paintings on canvas, mixed media works on paper and wood, and sculptural pieces that walk the line between art object and everyday furnishings.
Conveyed via a masterfully limited palette, her subjects are framed against swathes of monochromatic color and emphasize notions of mood, place and implied narrative. Within her intimate mixed media pieces on paper and wood, the artist draws creative inspiration from her past and allows her memories to weave together to drive her practice forward. Through a tangible sense of vulnerability embedded in each of her works, the artist aims to offer hope, comfort and peace to the viewer – resulting in a subtle message of optimism that is necessary at all times, particularly now.

BORN JUST NOW offers an intimate look at Marta Jovanović, a Belgrade-based artist struggling to cope with the violence that has ended an eight-year marriage.

Through provocative acts of endurance exploring intimacy, motherhood, and the trauma of the Balkan wars, she seeks to confront, release, and liberate her own pain in the name of art. This personal portrait is a moving meditation on what it means to be a fearless female artist living in the 21st century.

¿Extraña ir al teatro? ¡Nosotros también! ¿Prefiere obras contemporáneas o los clásicos? Pues ahora puede disfrutar de todas ellas, y lecturas de textos de grandes autores, desde su sofá favorito.

Únase a nosotros para volver a disfrutar del clásico de Harold Pinter, “El Amante,” desde el confort y la seguridad de su casa. Esta breve pieza teatral intenta descubrir las relaciones más profundas de dos seres inmersos en una relación amorosa insatisfactoria, que los lleva a buscar sucesivos amantes. La obra es una reflexión sobre el amor, la pareja, los compromisos amorosos y la manera de reinventar las relaciones. Inmersa en un juego perverso, la pareja inventa, por aburrimiento, juegos de seducción que terminarán confundiendo la realidad con la ficción y los precipita hacia un inesperado final. Con las actuaciones de Marilyn Romero y Julio Rodríguez, bajo la dirección de Pedro Balmaseda.

Las Lecturas Dramatizadas serán en español. En colaboración con MarGi Happenings y gracias al apoyo del Departamento de Asuntos Culturales del Condado de Miami-Dade y del Estado de la Florida. Este evento es accesible para todos y no es apto para menores. Si necesita solicitar alguna información, comuníquese con el Koubek Center: 305.237.7750.

Esta lectura dramatizada será este viernes 5 de junio a las 7 de la tarde, en vivo Facebook: @KoubekCenterMDC.

Miss going to the theatre? We do too! Do you prefer the classics or contemporary plays? Now you can enjoy both, as well as selected texts from great authors, from the comfort of your favorite couch!

Join us to revisit the classic work by Harold Pinter, “El Amante,” all from the comfort and safety of your home. This short play attempts to discover the deepest relationships of two beings immersed in an unsatisfactory love relationship, which leads them to search for successive lovers. The work is a reflection on love, the couple, commitments of love, and the way to reinvent relationships. Immersed in a perverse game, the couple invents, out of boredom, seduction games that will end up confusing reality with fiction and rushing them towards an unexpected end. With performances by Marilyn Romero and Julio Rodríguez, under the direction of Pedro Balmaseda.

These stage readings will take place in Spanish. In collaboration with MarGi Happenings, and thanks to the support of the Cultural Affairs Department of Miami-Dade County and the State of Florida.

The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, recognized as Broward County’s premier shopping destination, has announced emerging songstress Carly Jo Jackson as its next featured performer on Happy Hour with The Galleria, a virtual music series, scheduled for Thursday, June 4, at 5 p.m. on Facebook Live.

With a voice filled with grit and soul, Carly Jo Jackson brings the heat of the Florida sunshine to all she does. She has a vocal tone that is as infectious as her charismatic stage presence. She caught the attention of some big names in the music and entertainment business, opening shows for Michael McDonald (who also provided vocals on her recent EP), Kenny Loggins and Dennis Quaid and serving as a musical inspiration to Jeff Bridges who recently featured her on his Sleep Club website. Other notable performances include her 2014 appearance on America’s Got Talent, where she appeared in two televised episodes and advanced to Judgement Week; performing as an Emerging Artist at 2018’s Summerfest; singing backup vocals to Kenny Loggins at 2019’s Hawaii Songwriters Festival; performing at the renowned 30A Songwriters Festival along with Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile, Shawn Mullins, Livingston Taylor and more; opening a San Francisco 49ers game; and winning the 2015 Belk Southern Musician Showcase. In late 2019, she released her EP Au Naturel, produced by Chris Pelonis and Lost Coast Records and distributed by Jimmy Buffet’s Cherry Bomb Records.

Launched in April on Facebook Live, Happy Hour with The Galleria has successfully entertained thousands in the local community during the COVID-19 quarantine. Jackson will join previous Happy Hour with The Galleria virtual music performers Alexander Star, The Tim Charron Band and Tori Rossi Music and WILL PLUS.

Guitars Over Guns is hosting a cross-city open mic from Chicago and Miami on Facebook LIVE! Enjoy good music for a great cause. The open mic will feature several of our talented mentors and selected students, as well as special guests, singing original tunes and covers, in a diverse range of genres. Follow us on social media for performer and restaurant partner announcements.

Guitars Over Guns Goes LIVE! doubles-up as a Mentor Relief Fund. Join us in raising $35,000 as we look towards providing a stipend of at least $500 to every one of our mentors, in addition to their regular income which we have continued to provide them with, through the end of each city’s school year. We are grateful for the support of Savage Ticket, matching donations until we reach our goal.

Take part in supporting our mentors during these challenging times, as these live streaming events provide us a platform to generate funds for our Mentor Relief Fund. Many of our mentors lost their regular jobs, gigs, work contracts, and other income opportunities. Protecting their income is a statement of our values and our shared dedication to our students and our community.

Maybe it’s a rent payment, food on the table, a medical expense, or a way to support a family in need. We want to offer our mentors a sense of security and a token of gratitude while they continue to serve our students and our community with dedication, passion and resilience.

Tune in for an incredibly fun performance LIVE on Facebook, Tuesday, May 5 at 8:30 p.m. EST: https://bit.ly/GOGOShowcaseFB.

CES: ProCESs

VIRTUAL OPENING Party/Art Talk with Ces & Special Guests: April 18th at 5pm

RSVP: RSVP@museumofgraffiti.com to receive ZOOM link

MEDIA INFO & IMAGES: cece@feinbergpr.com

Mandated, statewide shelter-in measures have forced the Museum of Graffiti to shutter their doors, but the museum is maintaining a robust online presence ranging from daily art talks on IG live to downloadable graffiti coloring books.

The Museum of Graffiti’s opening for The ProCESs, featuring new paintings and drawings by famed NYC style master CES will be live-streamed on Saturday, April 18, 2020 at 5pm via ZOOM.

Visitors will receive an interactive tour through the exhibition while listening to a discussion of the work by CES and museum co-founder Alan Ket. Guests will be able to submit questions in real time and will also be the first to receive links to purchase newly released limited edition works. CES will be joined by a few surprise guests, famous friends, and collaborators. The live-stream opening party will conclude with a DJ set. To receive the ZOOM link, RSVP to RSVP@museumofgraffiti.com

“Although it’s important that we all make sacrifices right now, sheltering-in does not mean we have to give up on cultural offerings and unique experiences,” said Allison Freidin, co-founder of Museum of Graffiti. “Our hope is that our virtual art talks and exhibition openings bring joy and stimulation into people’s homes. I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t crack a smile when they see CES’ clever polymorphic drawings.”

ProCESs, curated by Carlos Mare, will present a variety of the artist’s small-scale marker illustrations showcasing his fine art talent, and the large-format spray paint works on canvas that he is well known for.

Inspired by ordinary objects in the world around him, whether a landscape, still life or a grilled cheese sandwich, CES has delivered a portfolio of unique drawings with a variety of both overt and whimsical illustrations that show how adept he is as a draftsman with traditional mediums, pencil and markers. His namesake signature or “tag” is revealed within each image as a nod to his graffiti roots. Whether CES is spelled out in a drawing of couch cushions or sliced Wonder Bread, each piece highlights the artist’s imagination and sense of humor.

CES’ canvas works showcase what he is acclaimed for – “Wild Style” lettering. He is instrumental in furthering a style of jagged, aggressive and hard edge letters as opposed to the rounded or bubble style of classic graffiti lettering. His letter and design innovations have influenced an entire generation of new artists in the US and throughout the world.

Born in the Bronx in the 1970s, Robert Provenzano, professionally known as CES, began his career in the early 80s. Influenced by the first wave of original NYC street artists who created vast works of graffiti on subway trains and walls, he was instrumental in developing the streamlined and aerodynamic “Wild Style” alphabetic reconfiguration in contemporary graffiti that is seen today. CES has a reputation for fine details in his artwork whether it’s his name or in the thematic murals he executes, this translation from paper to canvas, to the streets is what makes him such an exceptional artist.

CES has collaborated with brands like Puma, T-Mobile, The Palms Casino Hotel in Las Vegas, Seamless/ GrubHub, Nickelodeon, Vans, Marriott Bonvoy, and Turner Broadcasting. His work has been featured in The New York Times, The Source, Mass Appeal, Complex, Juxtapoz and TimeOut New York. Currently, he exhibits his work globally and is an active mural painter who was recently commissioned to paint an inaugural mural for the newly opened Museum of Graffiti in Wynwood Miami. He also premiered a solo exhibition of his unique collection of WU-TANG CLAN logo inspired drawings for the Showtime/Mass Appeal WU-TANG CLAN: of Mics and Men documentary.

The Museum of Graffiti is excited to present an artist who has a career that has been so influential and inspiring to so many around the globe. To celebrate the exhibition the Museum is hosting a special special online event:

Saturday, April 18
5:00pm: Virtual Opening of ProCESs, featuring a discussion of the work by CES and Alan Ket
5:30pm: Q & A
6:00pm: Surprise Guests will join the discussion

Raise your vibration from Fear to Love! Join us for this one-of-a-kind virtual circle designed as a workshop where we explore the nature and qualities of Feminine and Masculine energies, how to harmonize them within ourselves, as well as, how to navigate from fear vibration to the vibration of love which is the highest frequency.

Through attending this Divine Circle, connect with your own inner knowing while celebrating yourself and others in ways you never have before. It is a unique conversation about appreciating and celebrating our Divine Journey’s path with acceptance, forgiveness and empowerment.

Divine Feminine energy is not weak, nor is it aggressive, it is fierce compassion that refuses to descend into judgement and if it does, rises again to compassion over and over again. Individuals in touch with their feminine power are able to love, to be truthful and to honor what matters to them. Those who heal their Masculine energy are able to access unshakable strength to create harmony in relationships and increase creative potential and flow. In this workshop we will achieve both.
These individuals realize they are helping to create a new culture with wiser values. Living in this way not only feels better and more truthful, it also leads to a more successful life with much more creativity, positive contribution, personal empowerment and satisfying relationships.

What others have said:

“Mio has beautiful teachings to share that awaken our nature. She makes a safe container fueled by immense love and nurturing to bring out empowering self awareness in the participant. It’s work that you can take away and embody with natural ease.”

“I have been following Mio’s work for a while and am a fan of what she is doing. However, this was the first time I was able to participate in one of her programs. She presented useful information and insights in a very empowering and practical way. I enjoyed myself and experienced several aha moments. You owe it to yourself to experience her workshop for yourself!”

Join us and begin discovering the power of living in the harmony with Masculine/Feminine Energy. Begin learning what it is to feel deeply, love fully and thrive exponentially.
