Catch Grill & Bar ~ Marriott Miami Biscayne Bay pledges continued dedication to building local business and community through the Arts by presenting several beautiful events in collaboration with Gallery 212 Miami during Wynwood Art Walks and now for the months of November and December into Art Basel – making an amazing team with the gallery group for these events. Catch Grill & Bar Marriott Miami Biscayne Bay will provide light food and beverage during art walk alongside invitations handed out for guests to dine at the Catch Grill & Bar Miami Patio overlooking the beautiful Biscayne Bay Marina. [Editor’s Choice – Sit Back, Relax and Enjoy the Live Music Series at the Catch / Marriott Patio every Thursday evening from 6-11 with entertainment produced by Rodd Pratt Presents.]

Since opening their doors in Wynwood in February it has been the dream of Gallery 212 Miami, Pop Artist Michael Perez, Miami Publicist and all of the gallery team to find creative ways to give back to Arts Education in the immediate neighborhood as they had before on state levels (NY, FL) to local and international levels (Food for the Poor, Pink Heals with the Miami Fire Department in October 2010, for example). It is just this that they intend to do with the months of November and December (Art Basel) and beyond, by dedicating a series of special events to the exposure and to raising funds for the Miami Arts Charter School.

Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
