Conversations at MOCA is an ongoing public lecture series, aimed at bringing forward discourse on a variety of topics to engage our community of voices. This Conversation is part of the ongoing public programming around the ground breaking exhibition My Name is Maryan.

The Polish-born artist who came to be known as Maryan grew up in a traditional, working-class Jewish family, before being captured by the Nazis and imprisoned at various forced labor camps, as well as the Auschwitz and Birkenau concentration camps. The sole survivor of his family, the young artist shed his name after the War and became Maryan in a radical act of self-definition. His iconoclastic, ground-breaking work, presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami, speaks simultaneously of traumatic loss and the resilience of the human spirit.

Participants are invited to join a walk-through of this powerful exhibition followed by an inspiring conversation, as a panel of scholars explores the multiple and profound connections between Maryan’s biography and oeuvre and the concepts of identity and memory. Panelists include Dr. Helen Sachs Chaset, Board Member, Miami Dade Holocaust Survivors; Dr. Luna Goldberg, Education Manager, Jewish Museum of Florida, FIU; and Dr. Rebecca Friedman, Director, Wolfsonian Public Humanitites Lab, FIU. The conversation will be moderated by Dr. Martin Palouš, Director, Václav Havel Program for Human Rights and Diplomacy at FIU. This event will be co-sponsored by Ruth K. and Shepard Broad Distinguished Lecture Series.

In celebration of Black History Month, History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will present “60 Years of Black Art,” a fine art exhibit featuring works for show and sale from Dillard Center for the Arts’ Advanced Placement (AP) students, from February 1 – 28. The exhibit, curated by instructor Celestin Joseph, represents historical and contemporary themes of equality from the perspective of students at the very school that was instrumental in overturning segregation laws in the City of Fort Lauderdale 51 years ago. The exhibit will be open to the public at the New River Inn building of History Fort Lauderdale and will be accessible as a digital experience on History Fort Lauderdale’s YouTube channel.

“60 Years of Black Art,” will feature a variety of styles and mediums reflecting African American culture, arts and entertainment and the ongoing struggle for inclusion and acceptance. Featured pieces in the exhibition include works by AP students Angel Pena, Naima Cornelius, Lewis James, Jennifer Turner and Tay Small, among others.

Joseph received his master’s in fine arts in painting from the University of Pennsylvania. He received a bachelor’s in fine arts, cum laude, from the University of Hartford as a painting major, with an art history minor, and concentrations in printmaking and graphic design studies. Joseph also received a prestigious Yale/Norfolk Art and Music Scholarship to further his studies. Currently, he is teaching Advanced Placement studio art classes at his alma mater Dillard Center for the Arts where he has been strengthening the visual arts program since 1999.

“60 Years of Black Art,” is one of several engaging multicultural experiences at History Fort Lauderdale. Permanent exhibits include “From Dugouts to Dream Yachts,” a visual narrative weaving the story of the ever-changing use of Fort Lauderdale’s waterways by following the strokes of the first people to today’s sightseers, “The Bryans of Fort Lauderdale” which allows visitors to experience the story of the City of Fort Lauderdale as told through the pioneer family that shaped its development from an agricultural outpost in 1896 to a bustling city in the 1920s to its current status as a leading Metropolis, “Juliette Lange: A Portrait of a Mezzo Soprano,” a fashion and lifestyle glimpse of the socially prominent Fort Lauderdale resident with a lauded career as a star vocalist of musical comedy, plus “Archaeology of the New River” and a multitude of stories and photos sharing the history of other founding families of Fort Lauderdale. The nonprofit museum also hosts a variety of yearly multicultural exhibits highlighting Caribbean, Latin, Native American and women artists sharing their views of history and an artists’ collective collaborative space.

“60 Years of Black Art,” is sponsored, in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward County Cultural Council and Visit Lauderdale.

History Fort Lauderdale is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. with docent guided tours, daily, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Group walking tours are available upon special request.

Funding Arts Broward (FAB), a nonprofit organization committed to preserving and cultivating the arts in Broward County, will present its fifth annual “Black & White: A Night At The Museum” special event on Monday, January 10, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. This elegant black and white themed cocktail party at NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale will feature exclusive exhibit tours, live entertainment, light bites and a decadent dessert table.

Attendees will have the opportunity to experience The Art of Assemblage, Margarita Cano: 90 Years and Jared McGriff: Where We Are You at the NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale on a private tour by Bonnie Clearwater, director and chief curator of NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale.

The Art of Assemblage features sculptures composed of found objects and repurposed materials in inventive and fanciful ways. In the practice of assemblage, materials such as scrap metal, broken shells, tattered fabrics and discarded toys are salvaged and brought together in unexpected combinations, creating poetic abstractions of everyday life. The exhibition is drawn primarily from the Museum’s collection and includes recent acquisitions to the Museum’s permanent collection by artists John Outterbridge, Vanessa German, Pablo Cano, and a collaborative work by Jorge Pardo and Jason Rhoades. It also includes works by Christian Holstad, Ernesto Neto and Jessica Stockholder, and significant artworks from the Museum’s collections of African and CoBrA art. This exhibition is curated by Ariella Wolens, Bryant-Taylor curator.

Margarita Cano: 90 Years celebrates Miami-based artist Margarita Cano’s remarkable long life and records her transition from Cuba to America, scientist to art services librarian, and finally, to a painter of dreams. This exhibition will encapsulate Cano’s multi-disciplinary practice as a self-taught artist whose creativity has manifested through wondrous miniature books, votive portraits, landscapes paintings, prints and photographs. Cano’s art is a portal into a celestial world in which memories are transformed into sacred visions of life and loss. This exhibition is curated by Bonnie Clearwater with Ariella Wolens. This exhibit is sponsored by Rita Holloway.

The first solo museum exhibition of Miami artist Jared McGriff, Where We Are You, showcases his dreamlike paintings that remain timeless, even as he integrates his family’s history of migration from the rural south to the rural west of Oklahoma and California into the realities of the present. The exhibition’s title, Where We Are You, encapsulates notions of African Ubuntu philosophy, where the individual becomes the whole through the experience of the group. McGriff’s compositions of single and grouped figures embody the guiding principle for many early cultures that each individual’s actions impact others and society. This exhibit is curated by Bonnie Clearwater and sponsored by Sandra Muss.

Champagne and cocktails, culinary delights, and selections by Israel Charles, arts and music program director at Dillard High School, will add to this festive event. Guests are encouraged to dress in their favorite black and white cocktail attire.

Tickets for “Black & White: A Night At The Museum” are $75 per person and are available at fundingartsbroward.org. For more information, please call (954) 353-7673 or email fundingartsbroward@gmail.com.

Each year, the Coconut Grove Arts Festival (CGAF) expands its collection of artists to provide people with a broader perspective and endless layers of artistic meaning. Festival organizers theoretically began putting paintbrush to canvas as they started planning the 58th iteration of the festival. They weren’t afraid to “Paint Outside the Lines” with the addition of newer elements meant to offer inspiration in a more inclusive and interactive festival that’s accepting of all art forms, allowing guests to be in touch with all their senses. “This festival is rated among the top-three outdoor art fairs in the country by Sunshine Artists. Their metric is based on actual art sales and voted by the artists themselves,” said Nathan Kurland, CGAF chair.

Coconut Grove will be infused with over 300 jury-selected artists on Presidents’ Day weekend 2022. Large-scale art activations spanning across 15 mediums, ranging from classic and contemporary to the unconventional and eccentric, will line the streets of Coconut Grove overlooking Biscayne Bay. “Our devotion to the celebration of art has always been front and center as we bring together the finest artists to showcase their work. All art lovers and collectors are encouraged to take the opportunity to interact with the artists and take home a creation that will not only enhance their home but will forever conjure the memory of their time at our festival in the charming village of Coconut Grove,” said CGAF president and CEO, Monty Trainer.

World-renowned artist, David Le Batard, better known as Lebo, has been invited to be the 2022 commemorative poster artist. His ability to pull from a broad spectrum of creative mediums including, murals, paintings and sculptures, makes him the ideal creative choice to convey this all-encompassing experience.

Tickets go on sale online on Black Friday, November 26, 2021. The 2022 sponsors include Bayside Marketplace, Blue Moon, Peroni, LaCroix, NBC6, Telemundo51, MDC – Miami Culinary Institute, The Ritz-Carlton, Hotel Arya, The Mutiny Hotel, Picture Perfect, Miss Merch, Coconut Grove Sailing Club, Refine Health & VitaliTEA. The following new elements will be part of the experience:

• The Stacks – In place of a traditional stage at Peacock Park, the festival has built a six-container-high pyramid serving as a crow’s nest for the resident DJ and musical performances. The Stacks double as a giant canvas where muralists will be painting these containers throughout the festival weekend, giving the music a unique and colorful interactive element.

• The Inner Artist – Who doesn’t want to tap into their inner Picasso? That’s where the Inner Artist experience at Regatta Park will quench their thirst for creative expression. It’s where people can create their own art, encounter unique art styles and immerse themselves within the art for that perfect Instagram-able moment.

• The Collectors’ Club – If you are serious about art, you need to be part of this club! The Collectors’ Club is the oasis within festival grounds, offering complimentary cocktails and bites, an art concierge and private restrooms – all nestled in air-conditioned comfort; access to The Collectors’ Club will be limited and available online only.

• Kitchen Combat – Gone are the days of boring cooking demos. Kitchen Combat pits the best chefs and mixologists in the Grove against chefs from other parts of South Florida in what can only be described as “The Grove versus the World!” The combat arena will feature giant LED screens to watch all the head-to-head action in hi-definition. If you’re lucky enough to be in the audience, you will be given the task of voting for the winner of each round of combat.

WHEN:
Saturday, February 19 – Monday, February 21, 2022.

WHERE:
The streets of Coconut Grove.

TICKETS:
Admission is $20 per person per day and can be purchased at www.cgaf.com.

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will present “The Art of Tim Forman: Florida Everglades” from Saturday, July 3 through Sunday, September 26. Forman’s colorful impressionist environmentally inspired works will be on display at the New River Inn (231 Southwest Second Avenue).

Tim Forman is the third generation of Formans to have been born and reared in South Florida. He first picked-up the brush at nine years old under the instruction of Peter Olsen.

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will celebrate Women’s History Month and World Water Month with “Beyond the Shimmering Waters: Everglades + Immokalee Photography,” a visual narrative by award-winning artist Lisette Morales. The exhibit will open on Monday, March 8, International Women’s Day, with a special livestream virtual reception via YouTube where attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a Q & A with Morales, at 4 p.m. The exhibit will be on display through May 28 in the New River Inn (231 Southwest Second Avenue in Downtown Fort Lauderdale) and available digitally via History Fort Lauderdale’s YouTube channel.

“Beyond the Shimmering Waters: Everglades + Immokalee Photography,” is a project created entirely in 2020 and 2021 during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This exhibition at History Fort Lauderdale begins with a series of images highlighting Miccosukee Grandmother and Everglades conservationist Betty Osceola, Panther Clan, and her work promoting respect and awareness for our planet by organizing Indigenous prayer walks through the Everglades. It also highlights a collection of portraits of women who work or live in Immokalee and whose strength and perseverance are admirable and worthy.

Lisette Morales is a Nicaraguan-born photojournalist and interdisciplinary artist based in Florida. Her camera has been her tool for activism since the early ‘90s when she traveled through war-torn areas of Central America, documenting the disruption from military conflicts. After surviving domestic violence in her own life, Morales turned to painting and illustration as a mode of catharsis and self-expression. Her work echoes the feminist worldview that she now embodies and has been featured in numerous publications. In recent years, Morales has returned to photography as her media of choice. Morales was an official delegate to the United Nations Women 2018 Commission on the Status of Women. She is a member of the Artful Activist, Zuma Press, The Authority Collective, ArtAid Naples and Colectivo Liminal.

“Beyond the Shimmering Waters: Everglades + Immokalee Photography,” is one of several stories that History Fort Lauderdale is proud to offer during Women’s History Month. In addition to this exhibit, History Fort Lauderdale and The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale will also present “Women Trailblazers: Champions of Change – Broward County,” another photography exhibition, March 4 -31. This exhibit, to be displayed at The Galleria (2414 East Sunrise Blvd), will showcase six prominent women of today who are proponents of change along with historical female predecessors who helped to pave the way for our community. A ticketed exhibition preview and recognition ceremony honoring these women of today and benefiting History Fort Lauderdale will take place on Wednesday, March 3, at 5:30 p.m., at The Galleria.

The grandson of renowned Davie dairy farmer, Hamilton Forman, Tim grew up in South Florida. Some of his favorite pastimes were visiting the beach, fishing in Biscayne Bay with his dad, and stargazing. He first picked-up the brush at nine years old under the instruction of Peter Olsen. By 17, Forman was receiving commissions. Primarily a self-taught artist, Forman’s work is the result of dedicated practice. He uses field sketches, plein air paintings, and photographs to compose his pieces that are painted in layers with both knife and brush. He creates his landscapes to portray the splendor and simplicity of the natural world around us. Through his work, Tim seeks to lift the spirits and inspire awe above our day-to-day lives.

In compliance with local and state health guidelines, visitors will be required to wear a mask and practice safe social distancing of six feet apart. Hand sanitizer will be available at the front desk admission point and all surfaces will be thoroughly cleaned multiple times a day.

Cost: Free

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is presenting “HamacaS,” a socially engaged project by Liene Bosquê, coordinated by Ana Clara Silva, on view from February 8 through March 29, 2020. HamacaS explores the cultural dissonance and emotional displacement experienced by immigrants in the United States. The project consists of an interactive installation at the museum that will be activated through collective hammock weaving sessions and workshops. The project will offer a critical and expansive conversation around immigration with communities in Miami. As an integral part of the project, HamacaS will continue to develop and be presented throughout different locations in Miami after its inaugural run at MOCA North Miami.

HamacaS reconsiders the relational meaning of site and place for a group of people that both occupy several spaces at once and are rendered invisible in this country. The project asks us to imagine how immigrants carry place with them across borders and barriers. What purpose can a collective, shared space have for members of a community that is both villainized and erased at the same time? HamacaS is meant to act as a safe space for dialogue, debate, and understanding through engaging in making––the space between the hand and the mind that offers respite.

Liene Bosquê is a visual artist and art educator based in Miami. Bosquê’s artworks have been exhibited in museums and galleries in the United States, at MoMA PS1 in New York, and the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, among other places. In 2016, she received the Emerging Artist Fellowship from the Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens, where she presented her first public sculpture. Recently, Bosquê was an artist in residence at Queens Museum’s ArtBuilt residency in New York, where she started the socially engaged project, HamacaS. Her work has been included in international exhibitions in Brazil, Portugal, Italy, Turkey, and South Korea; at places such as Museu de Historia Natural in Lisbon, Museu de Arte de Ribeirão Preto, and Sesc in São Paulo.

HamacaS is funded by The Ellies, Miami’s visual arts awards, presented by Oolite Arts as well as the WaveMaker Grants program presented by Locust Projects, and is supported by The55project.

The project will maintain public hours on Saturdays and Sundays from 2:00-4:00 p.m. The artist will be onsite on 2/8, 2/9, 2/15, 2/16, 2/29, 3/1, 3/7, 3/8, 3/21, 3/22, 3/28 and 3/29 and welcomes the public to come participate.

On Wednesday, March 11, from 7:00-9:00 p.m., there will be a screening of 16mm film and digital video on the subject of weaving and culture surrounding this age-old craft. Screening to be followed by HamacaS artist Liene Bosquê and project coordinator Ana Clara Silva in conversation. The event is free and open to the public.

Guests are invited to a closing reception on Sunday, March 29 from 12:00-3:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Cost: Free

Fountainhead announces the inaugural edition of Artists Open, the first ever Miami-Dade County-wide open studios day. Initiated by Fountainhead and supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, 16 artists complexes and over 225 artists will open their studios to the public May 11, 2019 from 11am to 6pm.

With the support of Knight Foundation, The Fountainhead will host a countywide open studio event in Miami-Dade county, the first of its kind. The Fountainhead is on a mission to unite artists and raise awareness of the vast, incredible talent right here in our own backyard.

On Saturday, May 11, 2019, from 11am to 6pm, 16 art studio complexes and studio communities, and artist’s studios within close proximity, will open their doors to the public. Over 225 artists are participating. The Fountainhead has been thorough in connecting with as many art studio complexes as possible for the big event. To keep navigation easy, we have focused on complexes and clusters of artist’s communities and studios. Complexes and communities, listed north to south, include; Bridge Red Art Complex, 8365 Studios, Fountainhead Studios, Visual Art Group, the Milk District, The Collective 62, Laundromat Art Space, ArtHood 56, Bakehouse Art Complex, 27/20 Studios, Oolite Arts (Miami Beach), Mana Contemporary 777, Void Projects, 4700 @ Bird Road Arts District and Deering Estate. Dimensions Variable is hosting their grand opening that night and will be open from 6 to 10pm ONLY.

Kathryn Mikesell, Co-founder and Executive Director of Fountainhead believes, “intimate access to artists and art opens people’s minds to the value of diversity and fosters dialogue, creating a more tolerant, engaged and inspired world. To have a voice, artists need a sustainable career. To be heard and to affect change, artists need a broad audience.”

Because many of the studios are not generally open to the public, information regarding ADA accessibility, parking and nearby public transportation is being provided for each location via the website.

As a green initiative we will not be distributing printed information or flyers. We will be providing a comprehensive map via the website, www.artistsopen.miami linking all complexes and artists and well as utilizing social media and communication platforms.

Many artists will have works available for sale in their studios.

For press inquiries, contact Kathryn Mikesell, Foundress and Executive Director at kathryn@fountainheadresidency.com.

About Taylor:

Taylor Cavazos is a Mexican American artist born along the southernmost border of the United States in Harlingen, Texas. She is most known for her colorful, detailed, and symbolic Mexican-American paintings. After moving to Miami in early 2018, Taylor produced her collection of acrylic-on-canvas art pieces, focused on Mexico’s representation of the calavera (skull), Dia de Los Muertos and “Fridamania,” referring to the growing celebrity status of famed Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo.

Taylor Cavazos Art also has a larger purpose. Living with anxiety, Taylor finds solace in painting repetitive “dots and swirl” patterns on her canvas. “It helps me clear my mind,” she explains.

“Sometimes, hours pass without me noticing. I block out all unnecessary thoughts and truly relax when I’m painting these patterns.” Taylor hopes her unique take on Latinx art will serve as a platform to discuss the prevalence of mental health issues among Latinx and Hispanic American populations.

10 Days of Connection is a community-led initiative to promote kindness and inclusion in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. From May 1-10, participants are invited to attend connection experiences hosted by more than 100 local organizations, and are challenged to step outside of their comfort zone to forge new connections across lines of difference.

In recent years, people have become increasingly divided across lines of difference. Incidents of hate have increased, and tolerance for differing ideas has decreased. For ten days each year, we challenge the entire community to break down silos and engage in acts of connection, to build empathy, to increase understanding, and to refocus on our shared humanity.

Join in! Our community will be stronger when we all commit to focusing on what unites us instead of what divides us. A full calendar of events is available at http://bit.ly/ConnectionEvents2019.

Join the conversation by following @ConnectMiami on Facebook, @10dofc on Twitter and Instagram, and by using the hashtag #10DaysOfConnection to share your experience. Learn more at.

Raranaval is a collective performance in the streets, taking the form of a phenomenal procession. RARA is a popular street procession with dance and music celebrating the end of carnival in Haiti. Bodies are highlighted in colorful costumes to transcend social taboos and question borders between modernity and tradition in a public space. Overall, it is a collective response to contemporary individualist practices and habits.

Performing in Paradise Plaza in the Design District is a symbolic act of reappropriation of a gentrificated neighborhood. Through rhythmic dances, chants and sounds of drums, spectators in the streets will be invited to join this reappropriation act in an intergernerational and uniting spirit. RARA costumes will resonate with contemporary fashion designers and art of the Design District.

Cost: $10 to the general public, free to MOCA members and North Miami residents

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) will present the group exhibition “Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly” from May 24 – Aug. 5, 2018. Curated by Risa Puleo, the exhibition features the works of 37 artists who are native to the Americas separated into conceptual categories including indigenous, immigrant and assimilated.   
 
The exhibition focuses on the monarch, the only butterfly that migrates in two directions, as a geographic range and a metaphor. Monarchs (specifically those of eastern North American) fly from southern Canada through the Midwest on their way to Michoacán, Mexico and back. 
 
This survey of artists from or living in the path of the monarch, brings to life the Dakota Access Pipeline and the call to build a wall in Mexico as unrelenting issues that create challenges for people native to the Americas — being separated by conceptual categories of indigenous, immigrant, and assimilated. 
 
Like the butterfly, which takes at least four generations to completely navigate its way through middle America with inherited knowledge, these artists also use inherited cultural memory to showcase and explore historical narratives of their respective heritage through abstract techniques. 
 
Artists incorporate processes such as basket weaving, beadwork, copper hammering, and quilting, and materials such as stucco, plaster, ceramics, and feathers, that hold a high degree of resonance within native, immigrant, and brown aesthetics and vernacular cultures. The exhibition also charts the movement of styles and approaches through large spans of time across the Americas, speaking to an inherited means of production and genealogy of form. 
 
William Cordova, a nationally respected Miami-based artist, is one of the artists featured in the exhibition. Other artists include Gina Adams, Carmen Argote, Natalie Ball, Margarita Cabrera, Juan William Chávez, Rafa Esparza, Nancy Friedemann-Sánchez, Guillermo Galindo, Jeffrey Gibson, Sky Hopinka, Donna Huanca, Truman Lowe, Ivan LOZANO, Cannupa Hanska Luger and Marty Two Bulls, Jr, Salvador Jiménez-Flores, Nicholas Galanin and Merritt Johnson, Rodolfo Marron III, Harold Mendez, Mark Menjivar, Ronny Quevedo, Gonzalo Reyes Rodriguez, Josh Rios andAnthony Romero, Guadalupe Rosales, Carlos Rosales-Silva, Francisco Souto, Rodrigo Valenzuela, Mary Valverde, Dyani White Hawk, Nathan Young, and Sarah Zapata.

During the past 5 years, we’ve encouraged our attendees to ignite the fire within, to approach things differently, and together we have created unique experiences that have resonated in our community. For our 5-year anniversary, we dug deeper to find an inspiration to push things further than ever before. We’ve come together to create something entirely new, an immersive lighting experience we’ve called REFRACT. All matter is made of light and every one of us has a light inside that wants to shine through. With that in mind we are putting together a state of the art lighting installation designed for thematic moments of crowd interaction, where you are encouraged to manipulate light in your own creative ways. But, we didn’t stop there… we are ensuring a night of musical bliss with a very special lineup will have you moving to an amazing soundtrack while for effecting the light together. Let’s celebrate the past 5 years with a taste of what is yet to come in the future.

Designed and sculpted in honor of his mother Carla Pia Roux Bolongaro’s pet dog Totor, the sculpture has attracted wide-reaching attention. Totor was Monaco’s featured piece in March 2017 during Mr. Bolongaro’s art exhibition, which hosted His Serene Highness Prince Albert II. The artist launched his second exhibition of Totor at the Promenade du Paillon in Nice, France, in July 2017. This dedication in North Miami Beach is the third installation worldwide and the first in the United States of America. Totor the Dog represents Love, Friendship and Loyalty.

While Cortada, who is the park’s first artist-in-residence, creates discourse with his EPOCH exhibit, which portrays life that has existed on our planet over the past 500 million years and encourages the audience to ponder what life forms will inhabit the earth in the future.

In his Epoch exhibit, nationally-acclaimed environmental artist and Pinecrest Gardens’ first artist-in-residence, Xavier Cortada portrays life that has existed on our planet over the past 500 million years and invites the audience to ponder what life forms will inhabit the earth in the future. Conversations and thoughts on time, growth, and extinction will be brought to light as a result of Cortada’s unique interpretation of the individual’s adaptations or lack-thereof. As we move through the current epoch, the Anthropocene, humans themselves are changing the global climate and Earth’s ecosystems. Our reckless emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, along with our extensive use of pesticides, our endless yearning for fertile land, and our unyielding population growth are greatly accelerating the rate of extinction of our fellow species. This exhibit is free and open to the public. Exhibit runs November 30, 2017 through January 14, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday in the historic Hibiscus Gallery at Pinecrest Gardens, 11000 SW Red Road, Pinecrest, FL 33156.

Curated Ice Cream + Delectable Works of Art
Because art collecting can be fun, join Miami’s burgeoning young collector community for a night of ice cream, conversation, and art at the third Miami edition of Superfine! The Fair.
You’ll enjoy complimentary local ice cream and a patented toppings bar while you get up close and personal with 800+ works of art curated to your taste and budget. With 70% of the artwork in Superfine! Miami priced below $5,000 and a commitment to a transparent, friendly atmosphere, we consistently encourage young professionals to begin the rewarding journey to becoming a full-fledged art collector (without the stuffiness and barriers of the typical art fair environment.)

Superfine! Miami
Get an (almost) first look at the more than 800 works by 150+ local and global artists at Superfine! 2017 as we celebrate our adopted home in our third annual Miami Love opening reception.
Miami’s finest will mix and mingle to the sounds of hometown heroes Afrobeta in our backyard garden as local mainstays Naomi’s Garden and The Pool Bar at The Vagabond sling updated Kreyol fare and craft cocktails. Local favorite KRELwear by Karelle Levy will host a backyard pop-up souk with ready-to-wear tropical knit fashions as well as a see-it-to-believe-it performance art piece of KRELwear-clad models interacting with attendees in the garden.
As you enjoy the art, fashion, and creativity Miami is famous for, you can feel good about yourself because a portion of sales from Miami Love tickets go directly to the Dolphins Plus Marine Mammal Rescue Fund, a Florida Keys-based organization that helps save stranded dolphins and whales. Don’t forget to check out the paintings inside the fair created by the center’s charismatic dolphins!

vernissage /vns/
French, literally ‘varnishing’, originally referring to the day prior to an exhibition when artists were allowed to retouch and varnish hung work.

Don’t worry, the paintings will be dry: we’re giving dedicated art-lovers and our committed year-round Collectors’ Society members an exciting witching hour sneak peek at Superfine! this December in midtown Miami.
You’ll thrill to whimsical sparkling cocktails, performance art, and an overreaching air of surprise as you peruse works by over 150 hand-curated independent and gallery-presented artists. An ethereal backdrop of harp chords float through the air, providing the soundtrack to an evening that’s set to be a Miami Art Week tradition for many years to come. Limited to only 300 guests, the Midnight Vernissage is your best opportunity to fall in love with and collect the artwork you want before any mere mortals get the chance.

What’s Your Elephant Art Exhibit 7/15/17

What’s Your Elephant Art Exhibit
Saturday, 07/15/2017 – 08/12/2017 07:00 pm – 11:00 pm
1310 Gallery, Sailboat Bend Artists Loft
1310 SW 2nd Court, 110,
Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33312
Eventbrite
Cost: FREE

The Elephant in the Room is an idiom for an obvious truth that is either being ignored, or otherwise unaddressed. The purpose of this exhibit is to provide a safe place for issues and topics that are normally hidden from public view. Through visual and performance art, the artists participating in this event will share secrets and taboos, discussing openly to find solutions for individual and collective emancipation. Attendees are invited to enter the ‘Confessional’, an interactive safe space installation to share their ‘elephant’.

What’s Your Elephant will be hosted by 1310 Gallery residents Niki Lopez, visual artist, & designer, and Alana DaCosta, multidisciplinary artist.

Featured artists include: Niki Lopez, Alana DaCosta, AJ Grossman, Ana Rossi, Cheryl Brown, Macarena Zilveti, Mila Hajjar, Cesca Veo, Alex Tuzinsky, Chire Regans, Tabatha Mudra, Jose Silva, Yudelka Tavera, Zeal Harris, Artists for Black Lives Matter collective and SunServe Youth

Opening night performance featuring: Alana DaCosta, Profound Breath, We’re Weird, and Nephii Love, Bishop and Venus Rising Drum and Dance Troupe

Lopez and DaCosta will also host an interactive workshop called “What’s Your Elephant”, where participants can use creative arts in a safe space to reveal individual or societal “elephants”. “The obvious is oftentimes ignored and swept under the rug. Some people may chose to never face it,” says DaCosta, who also has a MS in Mental Health Counseling. “Yet, we all have creative energy and have the power of choice to free ourselves of whatever makes us uncomfortable. Through creative expression, many can learn to address the issue and share with others who most likely have their own elephant”.
“It’s about acknowledging it (the elephant), owning it, so that it doesn’t define you.” Says Lopez, an artist and activist with her own elephant that will be revealed at the exhibit.

As a part of this movement, Lopez & DaCosta ask that the public participate by submitting their unspoken truth AND use the hashtag #whatsyourelephant on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and Instagram.
