One thing Wynwood is short on is trees, which somewhat spoils the prospect of strolling around and peeking your head into art galleries this summer, at least while the sun's out. The folks at artformz alternative are running with the theme of humidity for their summer-long exhibition "Hotter than a Matchhead".
If you didn't catch the reference already from the atrocious pun in the title of this piece, the name is derived from the 1966 Lovin' Spoonful song "Summer in the City" and the idea is that, while Wynwood's concrete jungle will be scorching, the artformz alternative gallery will be a cool oasis, not only because of the air conditioning but also because of the new work inside by Natasha Duwin, Sibel Kocabasi, Ray Paul, PJ Mills, Alette Simmons-Jimenez, Rosario Rivera-Bond, and others.
Before the heat makes you crazy, stop in and refresh yourself.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Starts: June 9. Continues through Sept. 1, 2009
