For me Art Basel is the most exciting time of the year. This year is especially exciting because I am working with a few people on a project called Miami Icons. Our goal here is to break stereotype and rebuild Miami! We want to place Miami on the map as an art scene much how NY is.
We plan on launching our website on January 1, 2010. The site will be an online portal to the best of Miami’s local artists. It will feature interviews with artists so people can get to know the masterminds behind some of Miami’s most influential and inspirational works of art. Some of the artists we will feature (and hope to feature) will include Purvis Young, Lebo, Britto… these are just to name a few.
With all that being said, I would like to invite you, my blog followers, to our very first Miami Icons art event at Santo on Lincoln Road from 6-10. It will include 7 artists and 2 musicians. Visually stimulating and open to all ages. I am only going to post the flyer for this event and one sample of work that I will be showing… if you want to see the rest, you will have to stop by. Happy Baseling!
