Carl Hiassen at Fairchild and Jacuzzi Boys at Miami Art Museum
Despite the worn-out copy of Four-Hour Workweek on your nightstand, you're still a wage slave with pockets full of resentment but empty of cash. This week, though, distract yourself from your fiscal worries with little affordable doses of that c-word: culture.
Monday: Damn, we already lied. You're going to have to buy a copy of his new book Star Island but after that, the Carl Hiassen book event at Fairchild Gardens is free. Hear all about his dreamed-up cast of fame-whores, creepy publicists, and unscrupulous music producers.
Tuesday: Make an appointment to visit the new Miguel Paredes Fine Art Studio in Wynwood and see an iconic graff guy launched from NYC tagger fame in the 80s.
Wednesday: If you're still mad as hell about the recent real
estate bust, steep a little longer in your anger at a free Books &
Books event with Paul Reyes. He wrote Exiles in Eden: Life Among the Ruins of Florida's Great Recession, a blunt account of how the foreclosure crisis affected his family and the entirety of the Sunshine State.
Thursday: Tthe Jacuzzi Boys and Beings plays this week's NWM 2010 Afterhours
program at the Miami Art Museum while radio art collective Talking Head
Transmitters discuss '80s rock in their pop-up studio. If you're a museum member, it's almost free at $5; otherwise it's $15.
exhibits yet, you're embarrassingly late to the party. So make time to
see the street photography exhibits this Friday before you head out to
Miami's own calles and start some trouble this weekend.
