For more information contact info@locustprojects.org

After a breakout year of Basel success and media attention, the Locust Project’s Spring Fling celebration will culminate in an “Arabian Nights” theme in one of the most exciting building on the beach, developed by Robert Wennett, designed by Herzog & De Meuron, and heralded in the New York Times as “one of the best architectural designs…”

In signature Locust Projects fashion, Spring Fling attendees will have all of their senses tickled as they are greeted by belly dancers and treated to delectable treats from Michael Schwartz’s newest Design District brainchild, Harry’s Pizzeria, Miami Beach’s Shake Shack, Yardbird and couture desserts by Misha’s cupcakes. Drinks are provided by Castle Brands, Madarine Napoleon, Societe Perrier and Grolsch. The Luxury Goods Silent Auction will feature auction items like gift certificates to Marni, Niba Home, Neiman Marcus, and restaurants including Joe’s Stone Crab. Guests can also dance to music by DJ Hottpants.

But the highlight of the evening is Locust Projects’ Who Done It Silent Art Auction featuring hand-picked and internationally-renowned artists.

How the Who Done It works:
·Locust Projects administrators provide the artists with an 8 x 10” blank canvas on which the artists create an original piece in any medium they choose.
·The artwork is signed by the artist only on the back of the piece.
·At the event, the original artworks are installed so that viewers and bidders do not know which artist produced which work.
·Patrons can bid on the work they want in the silent auction without knowing the name of the artist.
·The result is a fun way to place artwork into collections, connect with Miami’s art community, and support Locust Projects.

As a hallmark that makes Locust Projects stand out from other art venues, Locust Projects embraces cutting-edge exhibitions and innovative installations. We are in our 14th year of providing local, national and internationally based contemporary visual artists the freedom to experiment with new ideas and methods without the limitations of conventional exhibition spaces. Community support has always been vital to Locust Projects’ success and the Spring Fling is one of Locust Projects’ most important sources of revenue for the year. The proceeds from this event provide essential funding for exhibitions and programming.

Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
