How many times have you been ripped off because you did not have or did not understand a contract? Plenty, right? This seminar will help you understand what you need in your contracts and how to understand them. We will break it down and make it easy for everyone to understand.

In addition, we will be making an introduction to the Volunteer Lawyers for the Art. The program provides pro bono legal assistance through volunteer attorneys on specific client requests for the Miami-Dade region. This is a program that you really need to know about.

Photographs of Oculto Miami Manor Opening at Soho Studios on 4/23/15

Oculto Miami Manor Opening at Soho Studios on Thursday, April 23, 2015.  This was one of the best promotional parties I have been to in awhile.  You walked into the main room, have a beer, take some pictures and pick one of three doors to venture into.  Once you enter the door you have three different experiences in three different rooms, all with period and story decor and interactive actors and activities. So much fun.  As you exit into the main room, you join everyone else with great music, drinks and food.  What a great night!!!!

Moving Images: Archives To Audience

Unseen films, including South Florida and Caribbean-centric home movies and amateur film “arrangements,” will be screened in a new media exhibition space, The Screening Room on Thursday, April 23 at 7:00 and 8:00 PM in Miami’s Wynwood Art District. Selected from the collections of the Lynn and Louis Wolfson II Florida Moving Image Archives by artist and guest curator Barron Sherer, the films are 16mm preservation prints, each the end result of laborious and expensive photochemical restoration. Two reels of film will be projected in a diptych – two images running side by side. The silent films will be accompanied by artist David Brieske, who will spin mood and tone-appropriate and experimental musical accompaniment culled from his collection of esoteric LPs.
