Congratulations to the MasterMind Awards 2015 Finalists

Congratulations to the MasterMind Awards 2015 Finalists

Every year, New Times accepts applications for our annual MasterMind Awards. This year we received more than 120 applications, and though it was a difficult choice, we've whittled it down to ten finalists.

Each of our finalists will be featured in a upcoming issue of New Times. In addition, they'll also have the opportunity to exhibit their work at our annual event, Artopia, held February 26 at the Coral Gables Museum. New Times, along with the wise counsel of past MasterMind winners, will choose three winners from our group of finalists and award each a $1,000 grant. If you're interested in celebrating these amazing artists, you can buy tickets at
